Boone County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan

Countywide Multihazard Mitigation Plan request for comments. Boone County, under the direction of the EMA Director Dan Zaccard, is working with Southern Illinois University in developing a 2020 update of its 2014 Multihazard Mitigation Plan. The plan is in the latter stages of completion and the county is looking for public input and any other feedback. In particular, the plan provides an assessment of potential hazards and their relative importances for the county (section 4.1), Belvidere, Poplar Grove, Timberlane, and Capron as well as mitigation strategies to be pursued over the next 5 or so years by the county and other jurisdictions (section 5.3). The public comment period is officially open until the end of day (5:30pm) on May 28th, 2020, but comments sent after that time will be given as much consideration as possible.
