Hazard Mitigation Public Meeting
Wednesday, June 29, 5:00 pm until 6:00 pm
Town of Charlemont Invites the Public to a Virtual Meeting to
Learn About the Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
The Town of Charlemont has developed an update to the 2014 Town of Charlemont Hazard Mitigation Plan that identifies and prioritizes actions the Town can take to mitigate the impacts of natural hazards and climate change. Citizen participation is essential.
A virtual public meeting will be held on:
- Wednesday, June 29, 2022, from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm via Zoom.
Join on your computer or mobile app.
- Meeting ID: 849 3281 6413
- Passcode: 386937
At the meeting, you will have an opportunity to contribute your ideas for making the Town more resilient to natural hazards such as flooding, snowstorms, high winds, and extreme temperatures. This plan was developed by a Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee comprised of Town officials and local stakeholders. Jamie Caplan Consulting LLC, a Northampton, MA-based firm, led this effort on behalf of the Town and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approval, and Town adoption, of the Hazard Mitigation Plan Update, allows the Town to apply for pre-and post-disaster hazard mitigation grant funds.
Charlemont developed a Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) plan in 2018 that also identified possible actions to mitigate risks of natural hazards and climate change. The Hazard Mitigation Plan Update will include all of those identified actions still relevant today.
