Public Meeting Set for Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Sugar Land, TX – The public is invited to attend a risk assessment workshop for an update to the city’s Hazard Mitigation Plan on Feb. 26, from 6-8 p.m., in the Cane Room at Sugar Land City Hall, 2700 Town Center Blvd. North.

The goal of the plan is to minimize or eliminate long-term risks to human life and property from known hazards by identifying and implementing cost-effective mitigation actions. The assessment will guide activities proposed in the Hazard Mitigation Plan. 

“This project identifies hazards and their occurrence within our area; compares risks of exposure to an established inventory of assets; and provides an estimate of potential human and economic losses based on the vulnerability of people, buildings and infrastructure,” said Assistant Fire Chief Pat Hughes. “It’s our goal to ensure Sugar Land remains safer than ever before.”

The purpose of the workshop is to share results of the assessment performed by the city’s project consultant and solicit information form the general public.  

Those unable to attend the workshop may watch the meeting on  Channel 16 if they live in Sugar Land and subscribe to Comcast. The meeting will also be livestreamed to the city’s website at www.sugarlandtx.gov and reposted at www.sugarlandtx.gov/HMP after the meeting.
