We Need You!! ….for Forsyth County Hazard Mitigation Planning

Feb 18, 2014


Citizens of Forsyth County, we need your help!

The Counties of Caswell, Davie, Forsyth, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry, and Yadkin are about to begin a planning process that will help our communities become less vulnerable to natural disasters, and your participation in the process is important to us! In the upcoming months, the Counties, along with participating local jurisdictions and other participating partners, will be working to prepare a multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of this Plan is to identify and assess our community’s natural hazard risks and determine how to best minimize or manage those risks. Upon completion, the Plan will represent a comprehensive multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan for the seven-county region.

To collect public input for the plan, there will be a open public meeting held on February 25, 2014 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm at the Walkertown Library, Auditorium (2969 Main St., Walkertown, NC 27051). This meeting will provide an opportunity for you to share your opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process. The information you provide will help us better understand your hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that should help reduce the impacts of future hazard events.

If you missed the public meeting and would like to provide input, please take the following online survey by May 30th, 2014:
