Next Date to Be Determined and Announced
On October 14, 2014, a Round 2 Municipal Working Group Meeting met to discuss updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan was held. Representatives of the Cumberland County Office of Emergency Management and their consultant, Stuart Wallace, LLC, were present. The meeting was held at 6:30 p.m. at the Municipal/OEM Building, 1000 Ye Greate Street.
Currently, Greenwich is participating with the County Office of Emergency Management to update the municipality’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The original plan was adopted several years ago and needs to be updated to maintain eligibility for certain federal grants as well as make sure we are working together to reduce the risk from natural disasters and hazards to the extent possible. If you are interested in learning more about this project, and offering input, please visit the project website at http://nj4hmp.com.
The updated plan, the topic of discussion for the October 14th meeting, can be found at: http://files.nj4hmp.com/Cumberland/Round2/CuC_R02_
