Hazard Mitigation Plan

Vance County has partnered with its surrounding counties and has participated in the development of a regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan is intended to identify know areas within our jurisdictions that are susceptible to natural and manmade incidents and to address methods and practices that are intended to lessen or eliminate any impact from such occurrences. A public hearing will take place at the February Board of Commissioners Meeting and we are actively seeking input from the public as a part of this process.
