Ontario County Updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan


Ontario County and each of the 26 cities, towns, and villages in the county are updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan. The goal of the project is to minimize long-term risks to human life and property from known hazards through effective mitigation.

The Hazard Mitigation Plan will focus on identifying flood risk and mitigation strategies. The Plan will also address other natural hazards such as wind, snow/ice storm, hail, extreme heat and cold, drought, lightning, tornado, wildfire and human caused hazards such as water supply contamination and hazard materials events.

The first of two community meetings to learn about the Plan update process and provide input on potential hazards and actions that can be taken to minimize impact of such hazards will be held on Thursday.  It will begin at 7 p.m. at the Ontario County Safety Training Facility in Canandaigua.

The second community meeting will be held at the same facility on October 24th at 6 p.m.

County residents are also encouraged to complete a survey prepared by the Plan update consultant, H2O Partners.  The survey is available by clicking here or at county libraries, Office for the Aging meal sites and all city/town/village halls have paper copies
