Meeting Information

Region K Hazard Mitigation Plan Kickoff Meeting

Kansas Region K and Douglas County will be hosting a public meeting to discuss the update of our 2019 Hazard Mitigation Plan. These meetings will be both in person and online.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires an approved Hazard Mitigation Plan to allow access to certain streams of grant funding.  The plan must be reviewed and updated every five years to determine hazards faced by the community and to identify proposed hazard mitigation projects that will reduce potential impacts from those hazards. Examples of projects that have been completed by some communities include building storm shelters, adding warning sirens, and purchasing and demolishing or relocating homes that have suffered repetitive flood damage.

Kansas Region K and Douglas County continue to prioritize planning equity, recognizing that disparities in health outcomes, financial capabilities, and living conditions exist within the county.  As part of a whole community approach, we actively encourage any historically underserved or impacted communities to participate in the planning and decision-making processes.

Anyone who has questions concerning this meeting should contact Josh Taylor, jtaylor@douglascountyks.org.
