Feedback Sought for Coos County Mitigation Plan

Coos County residents are invited to weigh in on the Coos County Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan, which is in the midst of an update.

The update involves a partnership with the county, seven cities, the Department of Land Conservation and Development, two port districts, two hospitals and a drainage district.

The Steering Committee wants residents to talk about how natural hazards such as coastal erosion, drought, earthquake, flood, landslide, tsunami, wildfire, windstorm, and winter storms could potentially impact their homes and livelihoods. The feedback is expected to help shape the plan’s update and could lead to infrastructure improvement projects such as bridges and other facilities.

An updated plan is expected to be complete by March 2022.
