SCCOG Seeks Public Consultation for Hazard Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Plan:

SCCOG has kicked off the region’s upcoming natural hazard mitigation plan update. SCCOG produces a natural hazard mitigation plan every five years on behalf of its member municipalities and affiliate-member tribal nations. Importantly, maintaining the natural hazard mitigation plan enables municipalities and tribal nations for hazard mitigation grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In 2022, SCCOG is able to leverage important work being done by the Connecticut Institute for Resilience and Climate Adaptation (CIRCA), and will produce a “Hazard Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Plan”, which will be more forward-looking in nature. The plan will also help align the region with new State funding programs that are expected in the latter half of 2022. Public Meetings Two public information meetings were held in early August, with the purpose of engaging are residents to identify hazard and climate vulnerabilities. One or more additional meetings will be held in the fall or winter of 2022, in order to engage the public in development of plan goals and mitigation strategies. Survey and Story Map An online, internet-based experience called a “story map” can be accessed at The story map provides a helpful background on hazard and climate vulnerabilities, and offers an overview of the process for developing the plan. An optional survey is embedded in the story map.
