ALEXANDRIA — The Alexandria Hazard Mitigation Committee is pleased to announce completion of the draft Alexandria Hazard Mitigation Plan 2012 update.

The committee is composed of a variety of local interests including the Emergency Management Director, Selectman, Police Department, Road Agent, Planning Board, and citizens. The committee worked in cooperation with the NH Department of Safety, Homeland Security and Emergency Management and the Lakes Region Planning Commission to develop the plan update.

The plan is designed to address Alexandria’s vulnerability to natural and human-caused hazards and will serve to reduce future residential and commercial property losses from hazardous events before they occur.

The most significant areas of concern for Alexandria were determined to be flooding, severe winter weather, and wildfire. During development of the plan, community leaders were able to identify goals and actions to reduce the impacts of these hazards. The plan is also a useful tool for leveraging additional sources of funding prior to, or in the event of, a natural disaster.

The plan will be available for review during a public comment period from April 4 – April 13, at the Alexandria Municipal Building.

Comments on the plan can be addressed via email or postal mail no later than 5 p.m. April 13, 2012 to: David Jeffers, LRPC, 103 Main Street, Suite #3, Meredith, NH 03253 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
