Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan – Final Hearing – April 27

When: Wednesday, April 27, from 6 to 7 p.m.
Where: Cross’ Mills Public Library
What: Final public hearing for Charlestown’s Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan

You can read the Hazard Mitigation Plan in advance of the hearing. Bring your questions and comments to the meeting or email comments to dboardman@charlestownri.org

The deadline for all comments is April 29, 2016.

The plan needs to be updated so that Charlestown can maintain its high rating in the National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System, which has allowed property owners to receive a 15 percent discount on their flood insurance premiums since May 1, 2015.

For a reminder of natural disasters in Charlestown, we have collections of photographs of the Great Flood of 2010 and 2012’s Superstorm Sandy at our website.

This project was made possible by the commitment of the Charlestown Natural Hazard Mitigation Committee and leadership and support from the Charlestown Town Administrator and Town Council. This commitment, leadership, and support will result in better preservation and enhancement of the quality of life, property, and resources of the Town of Charlestown.
