Hazard Mitigation Plan

The South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) is spearheading the development of the 2018 South Central Region Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of the 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. Hamden is one of 14 municipalities participating in the effort. The Hazard Mitigation Plan is required for municipalities to receive pre-disaster funds from FEMA.

Initial documents posted on this page include the 2014 Hazard Mitigation Plan and the PowerPoint presentation made by Town staff at a Public Meeting on December 7, 2017. Other documents will be posted as the project moves forward.

South Central Connecticut Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey

SCRCOG has also launched the South Central Connecticut Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey, which provides an opportunity for everyone in the participating municipalities to share his or her opinions and engage in the mitigation planning process. The information provided will help the Planning Team to better understand local concerns and issues as expressed by citizens of the Region, and can lead to mitigation activities that should help lessen the impacts of future disasters.

Participation in this survey is voluntary and none of the information provided will be attributed to individuals directly. The survey is located on the SCRCOG website and will only take about 5 minutes to complete and is available in both English and Spanish.
