Capitol Region Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan - Survey and Meeting Announcement

Capitol Region Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan - Survey and Meeting Announcement nf

The Capitol Region is active in planning for natural hazards mitigation to help reduce our vulnerabilities to natural disasters and enable our communities to minimize losses and recover more effectively when disasters do occur. The Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG), along with each of the 38 municipalities in the Capitol Region is currently updating the Capitol Region Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan. 

We want to hear from you. Please take a few moments to complete a survey – your input will help shape the plan.

Also, please attend one of the public workshops we will be holding throughout the region in May. At these meetings you can learn about the plan, ask questions, and provide input. Members of the public may attend any of the meetings, regardless of which community they are from. The same information will be presented at each meeting.

  • Tuesday, May 1 at 7:00 PM at the Ellington Town Hall (55 Main Street)
  • Wednesday, May 16 at 7:00 PM at the Coventry Parks and Recreation Facility “Mill Brook Place” (near 1267 Main Street and across from Bidwell Tavern)
