LIHU‘E — The Kaua‘i Emergency Management Agency invites residents to review and comment on the draft of the Kaua‘i Multi-Hazard Mitigation & Resilience Plan.
In May of 2020, KEMA embarked on a planning process to prepare for and lessen the impacts of specified natural hazards by updating the Kaua‘i Multi-Hazard Mitigation & Resilience Plan.
Responding to federal mandates in the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, KEMA began to pool resources to create a uniform hazard-mitigation strategy that can be consistently applied to the defined planning area and used to ensure eligibility for specified grant-funding success.
The 30-day public review period of the plan began Jan. 4, and ends on Feb. 2 at 5 p.m. Access a copy of the draft at kauai.gov/mitigation and clicking on the 2020 Update.
KEMA will host two live, virtual presentations on the plan and opportunities to receive public comment at the following virtual meetings on Zoom:
• Thursday, Jan. 14 at 6 p.m.;
• Saturday, Jan. 16 at 1 p.m.
Information on accessing both meetings can be found at tgilinks.com/3nqNkRD.
A recording of the virtual presentation with the opportunity to provide written comments are available on the plan website listed here.
