Public Participation Survey for Hazard Mitigation Planning

Grimes County is currently engaged in a planning process to become less vulnerable to natural disasters, and your participation is important to us!

The County, along with participating local jurisdictions and other participating partners, are now working to prepare a multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of this Plan is to identify and assess our communityโ€™s natural hazard risks and determine how to best minimize or manage those risks. Upon completion, the Plan will represent a comprehensive multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan for the County. ย  ย 

This survey questionnaire provides an opportunity for you to share your opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process. The information you provide will help us better understand your hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that should help lessen the impact of future hazard events.
