“The survey questionnaire (see link below) provides an opportunity for Hampton Roads residents to share opinions and participate in the ongoing mitigation planning process taking place with Hampton Roads communities.”

Start here at VBGov.com to complete the: Hampton Roads Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey.

Both the survey and the August draft will be “live” through August 17, 2016, at which time we will compile the survey results and comments received for the committee to review and act upon.

The survey will be available through August 17, 2016. Additional opportunities to review the draft plan and provide written feedback, or to ​​​​​attend a public meeting​ are in the planning process. Stay tuned for additional information.

Emphasis ours.

The Draft Plan includes language like:

Mitigation actions should go beyond recommending structural solutions to reduce existing vulnerability, such as elevation of structures, retrofitting, and acquisition projects. Local policies that guide community growth and development, incentives tied to natural resource protection, and public awareness and outreach activities should be considered to reduce the region’s future vulnerability to identified hazards.
