REGIONAL HAZARD MITIGATION

The South Central Regional Council of Governments was awarded a grant, administered by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, to develop a Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan for Bethany, Branford, Hamden, Madison, North Branford, North Haven, Orange, Wallingford, West Haven and Woodbridge. The five additional municipalities in the Region (East Haven, Guilford, Meriden, Milford, and New Haven) have completed or are currently working on their own hazard mitigation plans and participated in the development of the Regional Plan. The development of the Plan was completed with support provided by Jamie Caplan Consulting, LLC and AECOM.

The purpose of the Plan is to reduce the Region’s vulnerability to natural hazards and provide a comprehensive approach to mitigate any potential inter-jurisdictional hazards. The Plan defines responsibilities and analyzes local capacities and capabilities to manage mitigation projects.  It also fulfills FEMA’s requirement for a mitigation planning process that first, ensures federal assistance to these ten South Central Connecticut municipalities and second, allows the local governments to compete for millions of dollars of mitigation project assistance annually.
