Public comment sought on Mesa County's Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan


The Mesa County Office of Emergency Management is inviting the public to review and comment on the 2020 revision of Mesa County's Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The public is encouraged to review, comment, and provide input as part of the planning process for this important plan update.

The purpose of Mesa County's Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan is to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from natural hazards. Having a current plan makes participating agencies eligible for Federal Disaster Mitigation grant funds. The Mesa County Hazard Mitigation Plan is reviewed and updated every five years. This public comment period is to update the 2015 plan.

The public comment period is now underway. The public is invited to participate in the planning process in two ways:

  • Review and comment on Mesa County's Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan
  • Participate in the Public Hazard Perception Survey
    • Available online at bit.ly/Hazard_Survey
    • The public hazard perception survey helps emergency planners understand how hazards are perceived in our community. The information gathered from this survey will be included in the 2020 revision of Mesa County's Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.

Comments may be submitted electronically through the Public Hazard Perception Survey available at bit.ly/Hazard_Survey or by mail be submitted by mail 215 Rice Street, Grand Junction, CO 81502.

Questions and requests for hard copies may be directed to the Emergency Manager at (970) 244-1763.
