County’s Local Mitigation Strategy Update

 

            PLEASE BE ADVISED that Lee County Public Safety will hold two public meetings where concerns and comments will be heard in order to update the County’s Local Mitigation Strategy.  The two Public Hearings will be held on June 28th and June 29th as follows:

 

June 28, 2010

6:00 pm

Cape Coral Public Library

921 Southwest 39th Terrace
Cape Coral, FL 33914

June 29, 2010

The Local Mitigation strategy establishes a plan to make the County safer from a variety of hazards and to reduce long term deaths and property damage. Federal rules require that local governments maintain a local mitigation strategy to receive several types of disaster related assistance grants. Public comment is a federal requirement for plan approval.

 

            Lee County Public Safety encourages the public to view the draft version of the plan at the website:            www.safelee.org/mitigation

 

Comments to the plan can be directed to:     Micah Burkey,  Lee County Public Safety

850-273-0439, mburkey@leegov.com

 

Public input in the development of the Local Mitigation Strategy will ensure that the money is spent on mitigation projects that benefit the community most.  Lee County Public Safety needs help in identifying places that are at risk to natural hazards and projects that could be carried out to mitigate the hazards. Hazard mitigation actions include: prevention, property protection, public education, natural resource protection, emergency services protection and structural projects.  Lee County Public Safety is looking for mitigation project ideas. Are there roadways you know of that commonly flood? Are there buildings such as churches, civic centers, historical sites you feel are at risk to natural hazards (wind, flooding, fires, etc…)?

 

If you have a disability that will require special assistance or accommodations for your attendance at the public hearing, please call Lee County Public Safety at 533-3922 for information.

 

PLEASE GOVERN YOURSELF ACCORDINGLY
