TAOS COUNTY HAZARD MITIGATION

AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT

March 8, 2017 – Would you like to learn more about what Taos County is doing to minimize the impacts of floods, dam failures, wildfires, hazardous materials incidents, and other hazards? A draft of the County’s Hazard Mitigation Plan is being made available for public review and comment. The plan assesses risks posed by natural and man-made hazards, identifies ways to reduce those risks, and allows the County to become eligible for mitigation funding from FEMA. A Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee (HMPC) that includes representatives from various county departments and the municipalities of Taos, Red River, Questa and Taos Ski Valley developed the plan over the past 9 months with assistance from a consultant. The plan identifies hazard mitigation goals and a variety of mitigation projects with the intent of reducing losses from hazard events before they occur again. The HMPC is now soliciting public comment on the plan before it is finalized and submitted for FEMA review and approval.

The comment period will be March 9 – March 30, 2017.

The plan can be accessed at the following website:

Hardcopies will also be available for review upon request through Taos County Emergency Management.
