Integrating Hazards into the Comprehensive Plan

Hazards Webinar, February 27, 2017 from 12-1pm

As Colorado continues to grow, strategic and long-range planning will be essential to build community resilience by minimizing or avoiding exposure to natural and human-caused hazards. This webinar focuses on how local governments and communities can reduce their risk and vulnerability by integrating hazard risk reduction strategies into their comprehensive plan.

The webinar describes the process and approaches for integrating hazards into the comprehensive plan, including sample policies and strategies and helpful resources. Planners from Adams County and the City of Manitou Springs describe  the processes and best practices they used, and lessons they learned when integrating hazards into their comprehensive plans.
