Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan


August 10, 2020

The Leverett Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Committee, in partnership with the Franklin Regional Council of Governments (FRCOG) Planning Department, has prepared a draft 2020 Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan that is ready for public review. Once the 2020 Plan is approved by FEMA and adopted by the Town, the Town will be eligible for state and Federal grant monies to fund pre- and post-disaster mitigation projects. The purpose of this Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan update is to identify natural and other hazards that may impact the community; conduct a risk assessment to identify infrastructure at the highest risk for being damaged by hazards; inventory and assess current Town hazard mitigation policies, programs, and regulations; and identify action steps to prevent damage to property and loss of life.

A Public Forum will be held on Tuesday, August 18th 2020 from 7-9 p.m. at the Town Office, 9 Montague Road to present the draft plan and solicit feedback from stakeholders.
