Hazard Mitigation Plan

The South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) is developing an update to the Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan for 15 municipalities in South Central Connecticut. 

The purpose of the plan is to provide the region with a comprehensive examination of all natural hazards affecting the area and help reduce the South Central Region’s vulnerability to natural hazards and ease the burden of keeping communities safe and resilient. The plan is required to be updated every five years. The documents posted on this page include the 2018 Hazard Mitigation Plan, and the information for the 2023 SCRCOG Multi-Jurisdiction Hazard Mitigation Plan update.

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.
