The City of McKinney invites public input to develop a City Hazard Mitigation Plan to protect against both natural and manmade hazards. Mitigation is the effort to prevent or reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters.
A public meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 23 will offer an overview of the planning process and give the public an opportunity to offer recommendations. The public meeting will be held at the John & Judy Gay Library located at 6861 W. Eldorado Parkway, McKinney, Texas 75070. For more information, please call (972) 547-2868.
“This plan will identify local hazards, assess the risks and vulnerabilities and communicate ways to reduce loss of life and property damage before, during and after major emergency situations,” said Emergency Management Coordinator, Karen Adkins.
The final plan will be submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for review and approval.
Accommodations and modifications for people with disabilities are available upon request. Requests should be made as far in advance as possible, but no less than 48 hours prior to the meeting. For more information and to submit requests please contact
