Thinking about potential hazards overall, please tell us how important each activity is to you.

  Very Important Somewhat Important Neutral Not Very Important Not IMportant
Protecting private property.
Protecting critical facilities (e.g., transportation networks, hospitals, fire stations).
Preventing development in 100-year flood special hazard areas.
Enhancing the function of natural features such as wetlands and streams.
Protecting historical and cultural landmarks.
Protecting and reducing damage to utilities.
Strengthening emergency services (e.g., police, fire, ambulance).
Disclosing flood hazard risks during real estate transactions.
Promoting cooperation among public agencies, citizens, non-profit organizations, and businesses. 

Question Title

* 8. Please check the box that best represents your opinion regarding the community-wide strategies listed below to reduce the risk and loss associated with the potential subject hazards.

  Strongly Agree Agree Neutral Disagree Strongly Disagree Not sure
I support a regulatory approach to reducing risk. (Governments utilize a regulatory approach to adopt ordinances [rules] to restrict or direct certain activities. Aspects of a regulatory process include public review, requiring a developing or building permit, build-out inspections, and regulation enforcement.)   
I support a non-regulatory approach to reducing risk. (A non-regulatory approach typically would consist of encouraging voluntary efforts to meet a certain performance standard.)
I support a mix of both regulatory and non-regulatory approaches to reducing risk. (This approach may feature flexible performance standards or utilize incentives as rewards if a minimum performance standard is met.)  
I support policies to prohibit development in areas subject to flood hazards.
I support the use of tax dollars (federal and/or local) to compensate landowners for not developing in areas subject to flood hazards.
I support the use of local tax dollars to reduce risks and losses from the subject hazards.
I support protecting historical and cultural structures. 
I am willing to make my home or places of business more resistant to the profile hazards.
I support development of a post-disaster recovery plan that contains guidance and prioritized actions to implement following as disaster event.
I support maintaining a local inventory of at-risk building and infrastructure.
