Local officials are seeking community feedback on an update to the Summit County Hazard Mitigation Plan

Contact: Brian Bovaird, Emergency Management Director, 970-668-2999

SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County is seeking public input on the updated Summit County Hazard Mitigation Plan. The plan assesses the risks posed by natural and man-made hazards and identifies ways to reduce those risks.

"This plan outlines what Summit County is doing to minimize the impacts of floods, avalanches, wildfires, hazardous materials incidents and other hazards," Summit County Emergency Management Director Brian Bovaird said.

During the past five months, a hazard mitigation planning committee updated the plan with assistance from a consultant. The committee includes representatives from various County departments, all local municipalities, various special districts and other stakeholders.

The plan identifies hazard mitigation goals and a variety of mitigation projects, with the intent of reducing losses from hazard events before they occur. The planning committee is now soliciting public comment on the plan before it is finalized and submitted for review and approval by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The draft plan can be found online at www.SummitCountyCO.gov/emergencymanagement. Public comments on the draft plan are due by March 3.
