Hazard Mitigation Survey

Mount Washington Residents:

We Need Your Input!

Natural hazards & climate change pose a risk to people and property, examples of which are flooding, severe storms, invasives, freeze/thaw cycles, drought and heat waves. The Town of Mount Washington is developing a Hazard Mitigation & Climate Adaptation Plan to identify and mitigate damages from severe storms. We need your knowledge of the Town and want to hear your concerns.

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Fill out our short survey. It will only take a few minutes. It can be filled out online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/MtWashington. Paper copies of the survey can also be found at the Town Hall and Transfer Station.
  2. Keep an eye out for announcements of this project on the Town Website and Facebook pages. A public presentation on the findings of the project will be given during the winter and spring – we hope you attend.

Hazard mitigation is an action taken to reduce harm: it is pro-active, rather than reactive, and is taken to solve a problem on a permanent, long-term basis. If you have information that you would like to share, contact the Town’s consultant, Courteny Morehouse at cmorehouse@berkshireplanning.org.
