Join Virtual Public Meeting July 29 for Hampton Roads Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
July 7, 2021

The second public meeting for the 2022 Hampton Roads Hazard Mitigation Plan will take place July 29, 2021 at 5 p.m. online via Zoom. Residents will learn about the Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment section of the plan, which describes the hazards that threaten the Hampton Roads region and provides general background information, local data and historical occurrences for each hazard.

A Hazard Mitigation Plan is the result of a planning process to identify hazards and develop strategies to reduce loss of life and property. This planning process is structured around the four phases of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, which the region's planning consultant has aligned with the 10 steps of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Community Rating System (CRS). Having an adopted Hazard Mitigation Plan that is updated every five years helps ensure each community in the region is eligible for federal disaster funding following a disaster event.
