Hazard Mitigation Planning
The Town and Village of Woodstock is beginning the process of updating its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. Local Hazard Mitigation Plans enable towns to qualify for grant funds, and they make our communities safer. The first Woodstock Hazard Mitigation planning meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 6, 2021, at 6:30 PM at the Woodstock Town Offices, 31 the Green, Woodstock, VT 05091. The focus of the meeting will be to provide an introduction to hazard mitigation planning and to conduct a hazard ranking exercise.
The meeting is open to all interested community members.
Local Hazard Mitigation Plans are part of an effort by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to reduce damage from foreseeable natural and human-caused hazards. Examples of projects in local plans include increasing culvert sizes, regulating flood hazard areas, stabilizing landslides, and tree trimming near power lines.
