Input is wanted as Isanti County updates its Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan
September 14, 2021 (CAMBRIDGE) The Isanti County Office of Emergency Management is working with U-Spatial at the University of Minnesota Duluth to update the county’s Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan (MHMP). The plan assesses the natural hazards that pose risk to the county, such as tornadoes, straight line winds, ice storms, blizzards, wildfire, flooding, and extreme temperatures and identifies ways to minimize the damage of future events. As the county works to update the plan, it wants to hear from the public.
Public input is an essential part of the plan update. As part of the planning process, Isanti County is seeking feedback from residents and businesses from across the county to incorporate into the plan:
• What are the natural hazards you feel pose the greatest risk to your community?
• Have you experienced a previous disaster event?
• What concerns do you have, and what sorts of mitigation actions or projects do you feel would help to reduce the damages of potential future events for your personal property, your community, or the county as a whole?
Comments, concerns, or questions regarding natural disasters and potential mitigation actions to be included into the plan update process should be submitted to Isanti County Emergency Management by phone or email. Public comments may also be submitted on the Isanti County Emergency Management Facebook page where this news release will be posted.
