Village Invites Residents to Complete Important Survey

stormjohnson1Scarsdale Village is in the process of preparing an All-Hazard Mitigation Plan. According to Village Manager Al Gatta “The creation of this plan will allow the Village to be eligible for future mitigation funding from FEMA.” The goal of the plan is to identify projects that can reduce damage from future natural hazards. The plan will include a risk assessment and a hazard-mitigation strategy. As part of the plan, the Village is seeking the public’s input to help them to create a detailed plan that will increase the sustainability of the Village and address a variety of potential hazards that could affect residents and businesses.

The primary hazards in the Village of Scarsdale are severe storm, flooding, earthquake, and severe winter storms but other potential hazards to be analyzed include extreme cold, snow, ice, hail, windstorms and tornadoes, among others. The Village’s vulnerability to various hazards will be determined in terms of existing and future buildings, infrastructure and critical facilities that might be impacted. Critical facilities include government buildings and infrastructure includes power-generation facilities, water utilities, roadways, railroads and communication systems.

The Village invites all residents to learn more about the plan and complete an online citizen questionnaire at www.scarsdale.com/hazmit .
