Farragut Residents Asked for Input on Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Town of Farragut, in collaboration with Knox County and the City of Knoxville, is beginning the process of updating the Multi-Jurisdictional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. Farragut residents can help by completing a survey and/or attending an upcoming public meeting.

A hazard mitigation plan is a document that addresses potential natural hazards such as flooding, wildfires and severe winter weather in an effort to reduce or eliminate loss of life or property damage during such an event. Updating the plan will allow the jurisdiction to obtain eligibility for mitigation funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Residents are asked to provide input on which hazards they think are the most significant and what can be done to prevent or reduce losses from those hazards.

The survey is available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/Knox_Mitigation. A public meeting from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, in the large conference room at the City of Knoxville Public Works Service Center, 3131 Morris Avenue, Knoxville, Tenn., will kick off the planning process and provide another opportunity for input.
