Hazard Mitigation

The City of Biloxi has completed the planning process to update its Hazard Mitigation/Floodplain Management Plan. The process involved identifying the policies, activities and tools necessary for implementing actions that will reduce or eliminate risks to life and property from hazardous events such as hurricanes, flooding and other severe weather.

This plan itself — once approved by the public, MEMA, and FEMA — will allow the city to remain eligible for federal assistance should a disaster impact the community.

As part of the process, the city is seeking your input. You are invited to read the plan by clicking on the various links below. Then, you are asked to share your opinions in an online survey, which you can do by clicking on the Take the Survey button at the bottom of this page. The information you provide will be valuable feedback for the city’s Hazard Mitigation Committee.

Thanks for your help in reviewing the plan and providing your response to the information presented through this survey.

Plan developers will also be on hand to answer questions during a public meeting on Feb. 28, 2013, at the Donal M. Snyder Sr. Community Center from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
