Douglas County and the city of Superior are updating plans to deal with potential disasters and the public is invited to weigh in.

The Douglas County and Superior Hazard Mitigation Planning Committees hold an open house 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Superior Public Library, 1530 Tower Ave., on these hazard mitigation plan updates. Displays, maps and copies of draft plans will be available for viewing and comment.

The county and city initiated efforts to complete required five-year updates of the Hazard Mitigation Plans in 2015, using guidelines provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The purpose of a Hazard Mitigation Plan is to assess a unit of government’s risk to likely disasters, inventory critical infrastructure and develop goals and strategies to reduce the impact of a potential disaster.

The county contracted with the Northwest Regional Planning Commission to assist in plan development. Contact NWRPC at 715-635-2197 with questions or comments.
