Public comment sought on Bristol’s Updated Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Draft 2023 Town of Bristol Hazard Mitigation Plan is presented for public comments.

The 2023 Town of Bristol Hazard Mitigation Plan, updating the 2016 Plan, will serve as guidance to help the Town reduce losses and vulnerabilities relating to natural hazards events such as hurricanes, Nor’easters, flooding, an high wind.

As a result of the Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, communities must have a FEMA-approved natural hazard mitigation plan in place prior to receiving post-disaster Hazard Mitigation Grant Program funds.

The draft plan is available for public review and comments and will be submitted to the Town Council for adoption and then it will be submitted to FEMA for approval.

Comments are welcome on the draft plan until October 6, 2023.

For more information and to submit comments, please contact Diane M. Williamson, Director of Community Development by email at [email protected] or by phone at 401-253-7000 ext. 126.
