Who: Hull residents, business owners, representatives of non-profit organizations and institutions, and others who are interested in preventing and reducing damage from natural hazards.
What: The Hull Hazard Mitigation Team will hold a public meeting to present an overview of the draft Hull Hazard Mitigation Plan Update 2018. The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is assisting the Town on the plan update, and a representative of MAPC will present an overview of the plan update.
The Town of Hull adopted its first Hazard Mitigation Plan in 2017, which was approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The plan identifies natural hazards affecting Hull such as floods, hurricanes, winter storms, and earthquakes, as well as actions that the Town can take to reduce the impacts of these hazards. FEMA requires that plans be updated regularly, so MAPC is assisting the Town prepare a 2018 updated plan.

To preserve our communities and create opportunity for future generations, we must eliminate carbon emissions and green our cities and towns. We also must advance equity, resilience, public health, and economic growth.
How do we align those critical needs for mutual benefit? That’s the question the MAPC Clean Energy Forum will dig into on December 11. Join us!
