When:

Wednesday, March 8, 2017
2:00 pm


Where:

Lee County Emergency Operations Center
2675 Ortiz Ave.
Fort Myers, FL 33905


PLEASE BE ADVISED that Lee County Emergency Management will hold a public meeting where concerns and comments will be heard in order to update the County's Local Mitigation Strategy.  The meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 8th, 2017 from 2:00pm – 4:30pm at the Lee County Emergency Operations Center – 2675 Ortiz Ave Fort Myers, FL 33905.

The Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) establishes a plan to make the County safer from a variety of hazards and to reduce long term deaths and property damage. Federal rules require that local governments maintain a Local Mitigation Strategy to receive several types of disaster related assistance grants. Public comment is a federal requirement for plan approval.

Lee County Emergency Management encourages the public to view the current version of the plan at the website: https://www.leegov.com/publicsafety/emergencymanagement/plan/mitigation

Comments on the plan can be directed to: Lee Mayfield, Lee County Public Safety/Emergency Management, 239-533-0622, lmayfield@leegov.com.

Public input in the development of the Local Mitigation Strategy will ensure that the money is spent on mitigation projects that benefit the community most.  Lee County Emergency Management needs help in identifying places that are at risk to hazards and projects that could be carried out to mitigate the hazards. Hazard mitigation actions include: prevention, property protection, public education, natural resource protection, emergency services protection and structural projects.  Lee County Emergency Management is looking for mitigation project ideas.

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Lee County will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities in its services, programs, or activities.  To request an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication or a reasonable modification to participate, contact Joan LaGuardia, (239) 533-2314, Florida Relay Service 711, or jlaguardia@leegov.com.  Accommodation will be provided at no cost to the requestor.  Requests should be made 48 hours in advance.
