Mount Rogers Hazard Mitigation Plan

Please take the Survey HERE!

The Mount Rogers Planning District Commission (MRPDC) will be updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan (The Plan) in 2023-2025 on behalf of the localities within the district. The Plan identifies natural hazards and vulnerabilities, assesses risk and identifies mitigation initiatives to reduce or eliminate future losses resulting from those hazards. This survey provides an opportunity for you to share your opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process. The information you provide will help us better understand your hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that reduce the risk of injury or property damage in the future.

The Mount Rogers Hazard Mitigation Plan is available here.

 Please submit all questions or comments regarding the Hazard Mitigation Plan to James Dillon.
