Cleveland, Gaston, and Lincoln counties are working together to update the regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. Natural disasters in our area are inevitably going to occur; however, the purpose of this plan is to assess our community’s natural hazard risks and determine how to lessen our vulnerability when disaster strikes.
Public input and support are essential parts of this plan. In order to develop the most effective and beneficial plan possible, your input is needed. A public meeting will be held Thursday November 15th from 4 - 6 PM at the Citizen’s Resource Center, 1303 Dallas-Cherryville Highway in Dallas. All interested residents from these counties are invited to attend the meeting. The meeting will be in conference rooms A and D.
By applying a collective approach to hazard mitigation plan development, we will contribute to a more resilient community.
