Montgomery County is seeking public comment on its 2023 multijurisdictional hazard mitigation plan, the county announced on its website.
Working with the Houston-Galveston Area Council, the hazard mitigation plan outlines the risk and impacts of natural disasters and provides strategies to mitigate the impacts, according to the H-GAC’s website.
The plan must be updated every five years; Montgomery County last updated its hazard mitigation plan in 2018, according to the H-GAC’s website.
The 906-page 2023 draft plan outlines the natural disasters that Montgomery County could face—such as flooding, hurricanes and tropical storms, drought and winter weather—and how vulnerable the county is to such disasters. It also includes a capability assessment and what mitigation actions different cities in the county could take.
The public comment period will be open through 5 p.m. May 19, and comments can be submitted to the Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management or emailed to [email protected]
