Outer Banks Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Currituck and Dare Counties and incorporated communities are updating the Outer Banks Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. This plan update is required for all communities to maintain eligibility for pre- and post-disaster mitigation funding from FEMA.  This effort will also help the counties and incorporated communities to identify hazard risks, understand vulnerability, and develop ways to proactively mitigate risk.

To kick off the planning process, two public meetings will be held to provide information on the plan update process, review the identified hazards, and gather feedback from the public. Additional public meetings will be scheduled later in the planning process. The public kickoff meetings will be held on April 22nd and 23rd as follows:

Dare County: Monday, 4/22 at 5pm
Emergency Operations Center, 370 Airport Road, Manteo, 27954

Currituck County: Tuesday, 4/23 at 5:30pm
Public Safety Center, Emergency Operations Center
125 College Way, Barco, 27917
