Hatfield residents are invited to provide comments on the proposed final version of the Hatfield Hazard Mitigation Plan update on Thursday, September 3, 7:00 p.m. at Town Hall, 59 Main Street.
The plan has been updated by the Town's Local Emergency Planning Committee with assistance from the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC) and is funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA). All members of the public, representatives from surrounding communities, and businesses are encouraged to attend the event and provide comments on the plan.
The meeting will include an overview of Hatfield's prioritized hazard mitigation strategies and a summary of existing mitigation initiatives and their status. PVPC staff will be available to answer questions and to listen to comments from the public.
This planning effort is being undertaken to help the Town of Hatfield manage risks faced from natural hazards and to be a more resilient community. A mitigation action is any action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from hazards.
