Erie County, along with its cities, towns, and villages, are in the process of updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) in order to be eligible for federal grant funding for public and private mitigation projects. The HMP provides a “blueprint” by which participating jurisdictions can make coordinated, cost-effective efforts towards reducing losses from natural and human-caused disasters.

The following survey is designed to help identify general needs for hazard mitigation and resiliency within Erie County from your perspective, as well as to identify specific projects that may be included in the mitigation plan. Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, there are questions specific to this hazard at the end of the survey to help inform future decision making.

Please take a few minutes to answer the following questions and provide feedback on potential mitigation that affects your assets, infrastructure, and/or services within Erie County. Provide as much details as possible to support your choice in the comments box. Where possible, identify specific areas that need to be improved and your suggestions for possible improvements. If there are other important issues that you feel are not covered by this survey.
