The link below provides access to a Draft Hazards Mitigation Plan for the Town of Concord. This was prepared by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council in conjunction with Town staff. The Plan is now available for public review and comment, until May 5th, at which time it will be revised and submitted to the Board of Selectmen for acceptance and then forwarded to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for approval.
The plan contains an inventory of critical town infrastructure and identifies the risks to this infrastructure and presents possible means to mitigate those risks. Having the Plan is the first step in qualifying the town to pursue federal and state funds to address these risks.
The Plan is very thorough, and will be included as one part of a larger, regional Plan. It is recommended interested parties focus on the following Sections to develop an understanding of how the Plan may benefit Concord:
Section I, The Introduction, found on page 4 of the Plan, explains the rationale for preparing the Plan.
Section V, page 28, details Existing Hazards and Mitigation Measures.
Section VII, page 41, details Potential Mitigation Measures.
