Dare and Currituck Counties are nearing the final stages of updating the Outer Banks Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Counties’ participation is required in order to maintain eligibility for future pre and post-disaster grant funding from FEMA. The planning effort has helped both Counties and incorporated communities identify hazard risks, understand vulnerability, and develop ways to proactively mitigate this risk. Past public meetings were held in March and June. Those meeting shared information on the planning process, the identified hazards, and provided opportunities for the public to be involved and provide feedback.
The remaining final public meeting will be held as follows:
- Thursday, January 9 at 10 a.m. at Jockey’s Ridge State Park Auditorium, located at 300 W. Carolista Drive, Nags Head, NC 27959
The public is encouraged to attend any of these meetings to hear about the final draft plan and provide feedback.
