Public Input Sought for Eno-Haw Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan
Alamance, N.C. —Alamance County is joining Durham and Orange Counties, in coordination with their participating municipal jurisdictions, to prepare a regional hazard mitigation plan that will cover the three-county “Eno-Haw” area.
The counties are seeking the public’s input regarding the plan on Thursday, April 30th, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., at the Durham County Emergency Management Office, located at 2422 Broad Street. The upcoming session will be the second of two public input sessions.
The Eno-Haw Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan will identify local policies and actions for reducing risk and future losses from natural hazards such as floods, severe storms, wildfires, and winter weather. It will build upon the separate hazard mitigation plans initially prepared by each county.
The plan will also serve to meet key federal planning regulations which require local governments to develop a hazard mitigation plan as a condition for receiving certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance, including funding for hazard mitigation projects.
