Surprise resident comment wanted on hazard plan

Draft plan opinions open through April 30

Posted

The city of Surprise, other municipal governments and Maricopa County have completed a final draft of the five-year Hazard Mitigation Plan and are looking for citizens to review and provide feedback.

The 2021 Maricopa County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan assesses the community’s risk to natural hazards.

Comments will be reviewed for consideration to be added to the final plan.

To view the digital copy of the draft plan, click here.

To access the comment form, head to the multi-jurisdictional planning website at maricopa.gov/1760/Hazard-Mitigation.

Comments will be accepted until Friday, April 30.

Surprise works with Maricopa County and other jurisdictions around the Valley to review, update, and adopt the Maricopa County Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The plan reduces the potential loss from natural hazards and is a living document that requires adjustments to maintain its relevance and remain a useful tool and resource. 

Maintaining a FEMA approved plan also ensures the community’s continued eligibility for non-emergency, federal hazard mitigation grants.

For information, visit surpriseaz.gov/HazardMitigation or contact Maricopa County Emergency Management Emergency Services Planner, Rudy Perez, at 602-273-1411 or rudy.perez@maricopa.gov.
