The purpose of the public meetings is to provide a project overview from H2O Partners, Inc., consultant to the project, and solicit information from citizens. Public input will help the project team to identify and analyze potential hazards affecting residents and recommend possible actions to reduce their impact. The hazards included are flood, hurricane, extreme heat, thunderstorm wind, lightning, drought, tornado, hail, winter storm, wildfire, and dam failure.
The goal of the Hazard Mitigation Plan is to minimize or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from known hazards by identifying and implementing cost-effective mitigation actions. Mitigation is defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as sustained actions taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards and their effects.
Questions about the Hazard Mitigation Plan should be addressed to H2O Partners, Inc., planning consultants for The City of Austin; Attn: Rhonda Murphy, Senior Mitigation Specialist by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
