MEREDITH — The Meredith Hazard Mitigation Plan Committee is in the process of updating the town's 2009 Hazard Mitigation Plan. The committee will have its next meeting on August 28 at the Town Hall Annex 5 Highland Street starting at 10 a.m.
The committee, which is represented by a variety of local interests including police, fire, public works, community development, and InterLakes school district are focusing on the natural and manmade hazards that put Meredith at risk as well as the development of recommendations to protect the safety and well being of town residents. Residents of Meredith and representatives from neighboring communities are encouraged to attend and provide input. Hazard Mitigation Planning is as important to reducing disaster losses as are appropriate land use regulations and ordinances.
The most significant areas of concern for Meredith include severe winter weather, earthquake, high winds, and heavy rains. With the update to the Hazard Mitigation Plan, community leaders will 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 Meredith one step closer to that goal.
For more information please call Chief Kevin Morrow, Meredith Police Chief and Emergency Management Director at 279-4561 or David Jeffers, Regional Planner, Lakes Region Planning Commission at 279-8171.
