The city and county are updating their Hazard Mitigation plan, and we urgently need everyone to take their survey online. Be sure to emphasize flooding if you think that is the priority among our hazards here. There is not much room in the survey to insert anything, but the one blank for that purpose could be a place to mention protecting rivers and creeks with land conservation, if you are so inclined. This plan could help the city and county get grants for purchasing land, if flooding is prioritized, and land conservation is listed in the plan. And as you all know, land conservation upstream of town can help prevent flooding from getting worse as we grow and pave our recharge zone. Land conservation is also our only hope for keeping our river clear in the future! Please take the survey today, just 5 to 10 minutes. The link is: Flood Hazard Mitigation
