Buncombe County requests community input on hazard mitigation

Press Release

Buncombe County Government

As part of a regional effort to reduce vulnerability to natural disasters, Buncombe County is requesting public feedback on natural disaster risk and preparedness. This feedback will assist the efforts of Buncombe and Madison Counties to combine respective local natural hazard mitigation plans into one regional plan. A mitigation plan identifies and assesses a community’s natural hazard risks, and determines how to best minimize or manage those risks.

A brief survey provides the public an opportunity to share opinions and participate in the regional planning process. Responses will help the planning team to better understand the region’s hazard concerns, which can lead to mitigation activities and help lessen the impact of future hazard events.

Residents of Buncombe and Madison Counties are invited to participate in this survey at:
