Dare and Currituck Counties are participating in the update to the Outer Banks Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan and the public is invited to provide input.
The counties’ participation is required in order to maintain eligibility for future pre- and post-disaster funding from FEMA. This effort will also help the counties and incorporated communities to identify hazard risks, understand vulnerability and develop ways to proactively mitigate this risk.
Public meetings will be held to provide information on the planning process, the identified hazards and additional opportunities for public involvement, as well as to gather feedback from the public. A meeting was held Tuesday at the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education in Corolla.
Meetings are set for Wednesday, June 5 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Fessenden Center Annex in Buxton and on Thursday, June 6 from 1 to 2 p.m. at Kill Devil Hills Town Hall Commissioners Meeting Room.
