Vision Planning and Consulting is proud to announce the contract award to assist Howard County, Maryland, with their Hazard Mitigation Plan and Flood Mitigation Plan updates. Work officially began the beginning of October and the first Steering Committee is scheduled for mid-November.
The Steering Committee is composed of representatives from Planning and Zoning, Emergency Management, Economic Development, Department of Public Works, community and business representatives, and homeowners among others. The goal is to have input from various agencies, residents, and businesses across the county.
The first Steering Committee meeting will begin with the evaluation of the Flood and Hazard Mitigation Plan actions, goals, and objectives from the 2012 Plan. This includes identifying which of those original actions have been completed, are in process, or have been deferred. Public meetings are planned as well, to garner additional input from residents and businesses from around the county on multiple hazards, in addition to flooding.
