Webinar: Integrating Hazards into the Comprehensive Plan
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 will focus on how local governments and communities can reduce their risk and vulnerability by integrating hazard risk reduction strategies into their comprehensive plan.



The Community Development Office publishes an e-bulletin once a month highlighting upcoming events, important news and announcements, and other interesting links related to land use planning, economic development, and sustainable community development.
