[ARCHIVED] Get Involved in the Hampton Roads Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

James City County logo

James City County is currently engaged in a planning process to become less vulnerable to natural disasters and man-made hazards, and your participation in the final stages of plan review is important. Hampton Roads communities jointly updated their Hazard Mitigation Plans and combined the documents, which were adopted between 2011 and early 2015. The purpose of these plans is to identify and assess each community’s hazard risks (such as floods, hurricanes and winter storms), and determine how to best minimize or manage those risks.

There are two ways you can provide feedback to the Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee:

1. Review the Draft Plan. The September 2016 working draft of the Hampton Roads Hazard Mitigation Plan Update is now posted for your review. Please provide comments or questions to John Sadler who may be reached by email at jsadler@hrpdcva.gov or by phone at 757-420-8300. Please be as specific as possible in your comments and provide page numbers or section numbers pertinent to your remarks.

2. Attend the Feedback Forum. The Committee will host a Feedback Forum on Tuesday, Sept. 27, from 4-6 p.m., at the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center, 20130 University Boulevard, Suffolk. Committee members will provide information on the planning process and collect feedback.
