Erie County Seeks Public Input on Hazard Risk Reduction Projects

The Erie County Department of Planning & Community Development, in partnership with the Erie County Department of Public Safety, is in the process of preparing an update to the Erie County Hazard Mitigation Plan. The plan is updated every 5 years. It supports hazard mitigation grant funding, but its primary purpose is to set goals that when implemented, will help reduce the negative impacts of future hazards, including flooding, winter storms, tornadoes and many other hazards.

The County is seeking public input that will help to gauge the level of public support for a variety of risk reduction projects such as improved flood controls, upgrades to critical infrastructure, planning for community shelters, and the equipment needs of emergency responders. Your participation in the public survey will help us to reduce Erie County’s vulnerability to future hazards.
