Posted on: November 19th, 2013 by Leslie_Zucker

The final ver­sion of the Town of Shan­dak­en Flood Haz­ard Mit­i­ga­tion Plan is avail­able for view­ing on our web­site. Over a year in the mak­ing, this plan was cre­at­ed with input from the Shan­dak­en Area Flood Assess­ment and Reme­di­a­tion Ini­tia­tive (SAFARI), TetraT­e­ch Inc. (a con­sult­ing firm), and numer­ous com­mu­ni­ty part­ners.  The plan out­lines steps the Town can take to bet­ter pre­pare for and mit­i­gate future flood­ing. The Town can uti­lize this plan when seek­ing grant fund­ing for flood mit­i­ga­tion or emer­gency ser­vices. The plan will guide the Town when choos­ing projects for the NY Ris­ing Com­mu­ni­ty Recon­struc­tion Pro­gram and the Local Flood Analy­sis fund­ing pro­grams next year.
