Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and the County's six towns are working on the County's Hazardous Mitigation Plan. Citizens are now invited to provide input on the draft plan
Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and the County's six towns have begun work on the County's Hazardous Mitigation Plan. Implemented in 2000, Communities are required by FEMA to update their hazard mitigation plans every 5 years to remain eligible for federal disaster funding. Any federally declared disaster in State of North Carolina means Mecklenburg County is eligible to apply for plan-identified mitigation project funding. Having an updated plan ensures that the County will be ready with mitigation project ideas whenever funding becomes available.
Matthews residents were invited to participate in the planning effort by completing a brief hazard and preparedness awareness survey in March 2019.
