Public Invited to Comment on the Draft South Central Region Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan
(NORTH HAVEN) The South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) invites the public to review and comment on the Draft South Central Region Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of this plan is to identify and assess natural hazard risks (such as flooding, winter storms, and hurricanes) and determine how to best minimize or manage those risks. Public participation is an important part of the mitigation planning process. Residents, business owners and town officials of the SCRCOG municipalities are encouraged to review the plan.
The Draft South Central Region Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan is available for public review:
April 30, 2018 – May 14, 2018

The South Central Regional Council of Governments began updating the previous regional Hazard Mitigation Plan with the help of a consulting team led by Jamie Caplan Consulting LLC with support from Milone & MacBroom and Punchard Consulting. An Advisory Committee comprised of representatives from Bethany, Branford, East Haven, Guilford, Hamden, Madison, Milford, New Haven, North Branford, North Haven, Orange, Wallingford, West Haven and Woodbridge.
The purpose of the South Central Region Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan Update is to provide the Region with a comprehensive examination of all natural hazards affecting the area and to provide a framework for informed decision-making regarding the selection of cost-effective mitigation actions. These mitigation actions, when implemented, will reduce the Region’s risk and vulnerability from natural hazards. The hazard mitigation plan is a prerequisite for the municipalities to apply for state and federal mitigation grant funding.
