Town of Shandaken Residents,

It is time to update our 2013 Flood Mitigation Plan (FMP) for the Town of Shandaken! This plan will allow us to identify and reduce the Town's vulnerability to floods and allow us to implement actions to reduce the risk of floods to our residents and businesses. An FMP is a step toward addressing flooding , its effects on businesses and population and in reducing future damages due to flood events.

An FMP is a living document that can be used to reduce their vulnerability to flooding. An FMP can form the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce losses and break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. It can create a framework for risk-based decision making to reduce damages to lives, property, and the economy from future disasters.

This survey aims to gather feedback from local citizens about flooding in the Town of Shandaken and to gather information about areas vulnerable to floods. The information you provide will help us coordinate activities to reduce risk of future injury or property damage for you and others.

This survey consists of 29 questions and will take less than 15 minutes to complete.

Thank you for your time in this effort!
