The Erie County Department of Planning and Community Development, in partnership with the Erie County Department of Public Safety, is in the process of updating the county’s Hazard Mitigation Plan.
The plan is updated every five years, and its primary purpose is to set goals that will help reduce the negative impacts of hazards, including flooding, winter storms, tornadoes and others when implemented. It also supports securing hazard mitigation grant funding.
The county is seeking public input that will gauge the level of public support for a variety of projects that range from improved flood controls, upgrades to infrastructure, planning for community shelters and equipment needs for emergency responders.
Residents can access the survey at corrypa.org. The survey will remain open through Wednesday. All responses are completely anonymous, and are specific to the boroughs and townships people reside in.
