KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 13, 2017) - Knox County, the City of Knoxville and the Town of Farragut are beginning the process to update the Multi-Jurisdictional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan, which helps to identify ways to protect our community from the effects of natural hazard events.
The Multi-Jurisdictional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan will be the result of a planning process which identifies policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce the risk and future losses resulting from hazard events. In addition, a FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plan is a condition for communities to receive certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance, including funding for mitigation projects.
It's important to gather citizen input as well as opinions on ways to prevent or lessen the impacts of hazards. Therefore, we ask you to please take this short 10-question survey to help us gather input for updating our local mitigation plan: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Knox_Mitigation
