The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan details the natural and man-made hazards that face the County and identifies specific mitigation strategies and actions to reduce the impact of disasters.
This is a multi-jurisdictional plan that covers Scott County, including the 11 townships, the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community and the cities of Belle Plaine, Elko New Market, Jordan, New Prague, Prior Lake, Savage, and Shakopee. The risks and mitigation activities identified in the Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan also incorporate the concerns and needs of townships, school districts, watershed districts, and other entities participating in this plan. The Emergency Management division of the Scott County Sheriff’s Office will be facilitating the planning process.
Public input is a required step in the Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan planning process. Community members and representatives from townships are strongly encouraged to attend this public meeting.
“The meeting will provide local residents, businesses, agencies and organizations an opportunity to learn about the draft plan,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen. “We encourage our community partners and citizens to attend and ask questions, provide feedback on mitigation strategies, and recommend actions to limit or reduce the impact of natural and man-made hazards in Scott County.”
