Draft completed for Holdernesss Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

HOLDERNESS — The Holderness Hazard Mitigation Committee is pleased to announce completion of the DRAFT Town of Holderness Hazard Mitigation Plan Update, 2014.  The Plan will be available for review during a public comment period from August 21 – 28, 2014 on the town’s website (http://www.holderness-nh.org/), at the Holderness Town Hall, the and the town library.

The committee is represented by a variety of local interests including the Board of Selectmen, Town Administrator and Emergency Management Director, Fire Chief, Police Chief, Highway Road Agent, Planning Board, and Librarian. The Committee was assisted in this effort by staff from the Lakes Region Planning Commission. The Plan is designed to address Holderness’s vulnerability to natural and man-made hazards and will serve to reduce future residential and commercial property losses from hazardous events before they occur. The committee reviewed changes that have occurred in the last five years, including the status of mitigation actions that were recommended in the 2008 Plan.

Natural hazards likely to impact Holderness include flooding, high winds, severe winter weather, lightning strikes, earthquake, and wildfire. During development of the Plan, community leaders were able to identify and prioritize 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.

All comments on the draft should be directed in writing to Emergency Management Director and Town Administrator at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
