Public Comment Desired

The city of Tenino seeks public comment on its annex to the Hazards Mitigation Plan for the Thurston Region until Friday, July 20, 2018. Adoption of the regional plan and the Tenino’s annex makes the city eligible for grant funding through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Hazards such as earthquakes, severe storms, floods, and wildfires can cause lengthy disruptions and are costly. By identifying and implementing ways to mitigate such hazards, we can minimize or even eliminate long-term risks to life and property.

We encourage everyone to comment on ways the plan can improve; especially regarding mitigation initiatives the city can implement. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the city planner, Katrina Van Every, at (360) 741.2514 or via e-mail. For more information on the regional plan, visit the Thurston Regional Planning Council website.
