Bristol Hazard Mitigation Plan meeting on Friday


BRISTOL — The Bristol Hazard Mitigation Plan Committee will begin the process of updating its 2010 Hazard Mitigation Plan when it meets on Friday, Nov. 21, at the Bristol Town Office building, 230 Lake St., starting at 1:30 p.m. Residents of Bristol and representatives from neighboring communities are encouraged to attend and offer ideas.

The committee, which is represented by a variety of local interests, will focus on the natural and manmade hazards that pose a risk to Bristol, as well as the development of recommendations to protect the safety and well-being of town residents.

Hazard Mitigation Planning is as important to reducing disaster losses as are appropriate regulations and land use ordinances. The most significant areas of concern for Bristol will be determined as a result of this process. With the update to the Hazard Mitigation Plan, community leaders will be able to prioritize actions to reduce the impacts of these and other hazards. Community leaders want the town to be a disaster resistant community and believe that updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan will bring Bristol one step closer to that goal.

Those who wish to have more information may call Chief Steve Yannuzzi, Bristol Fire Chief and Emergency Management Director at 744-2632 or David Jeffers, Regional Planner, Lakes Region Planning Commission at 279-5341.
