Dare County and Currituck County have joined efforts on updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Towns of Manteo, Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Southern Shores and Duck will also be part of the 2020 Hazard Mitigation Update. Local governments are required to prepare and update hazard mitigation plans in order to be eligible for FEMA disaster relief assistance.
A project website has been set up at www.obx-hmp.com that will provide in-depth details on the Plan process. In addition, any upcoming and past Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee meetings and public meetings, draft documents, and summaries of the hazards that affect the Outer Banks will be available.
Most importantly, a citizen survey is available on hazard risk and mitigation options that will assist in forming action steps for the plan. Citizen input is a critical part of the plan update process. We encourage everyone to visit the website to complete the Public Survey at www.obx-hmp.com/Survey.
