Hazard-Weary Hawleyites Should Review this Plan

Please examine Hawley’s Draft Hazard Mitigation Plan/Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Plan, which is POSTED HERE for your review.

Natural Hazard Mitigation Planning is intended to provide the Town of Hawley with a risk-based approach to making planning decisions. Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Planning is intended to support the Town’s climate change resiliency planning and implementation of priority projects.

This plan focuses on both hazard mitigation planning and climate adaptation and satisfies the regulatory requirements for hazard mitigation planning through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and climate adaptation planning through the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs’ Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) grant program.
