In April 2014, the Counties of Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem initiated a project to update a four county Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plans through FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). Awebsite has been created specifically for the development of this Mitigation Plan which will be used for multiple purposes including:
· Public Information – The website contains general project background information and will also be used later in the project to provide updates on work-in-progress and public access to draft documents for review. This link should be added to your community's website to provide public access to the most current information on the project.
· County Planning Committees and Municipal Working Groups – The website will be used to provide documents to committees and working groups for their use and review.
The website can be accessed at http://nj4hmp.com. Please visit the site at your earliest convenience. If you click on your county, you will see a map of your county with each municipality delineated. Click on your municipality and you will have access to documents relating specifically to your community.
