City seeks input on updated mitigation plan

The City of Biloxi is seeking public input to help update its Hazard Mitigation Floodplain Management Plan.

The hazard mitigation plan identifies and assesses the risks from natural hazards faced by the community and how to best minimize or manage those risks. Having an updated hazard mitigation plan is necessary to qualify for federal mitigation funds.

As part of the update, Biloxi residents are being asked to review the plan and leave a comment.  The comment section will be open Monday, Oct. 23 through Monday, Nov. 13. 

Approval for the updated plan is set to go before the Biloxi City Council on Tuesday, Nov. 14 during its 1:30 p.m. meeting.  Citizens are welcome to comment on this plan during the citizens’ comments portion of the city council meeting.
