HCC To Hold Public Meeting
On Hazard Mitigation Plan

Feb. 24, 4-5 p.m.

Room A101, Lafayette Hall

BRIDGEPORT – Housatonic Community College will hold a public meeting Feb. 24 on its hazard mitigation plan.

The plan will identify the most serious natural hazards that the college could face, and the measures necessary to lessen their impact. The hazards to be addressed include such things as hurricanes, blizzards, flooding, etc.

The HCC plan is Housatonic’s portion of a multi-campus hazard mitigation plan being developed by the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (ConnSCU). The project is being funded by a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant.

At the meeting, Woodard & Curran of Portland, ME, the consultant developing the system-wide plan, will explain the proposal. Members of the HCC hazard mitigation committee will discuss the specific hazards that could present the greatest threat to HCC campus operations and what can be done to blunt their impact.

The meeting will be held from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Room A101 in Lafayette Hall on the HCC campus. Students, faculty, staff and residents of the college’s service area, which includes Bridgeport, Stratford, Milford, Derby, Ansonia, Seymour, Shelton, Easton, Monroe, Fairfield and Trumbull, are invited to attend.

Housatonic is at 900 Lafayette Blvd. in downtown Bridgeport, less than 150 yards off Exit 27 of I-95 and Exit 1 off Rte. 8, a block from the Harbor Yard sports complex. Free parking is available in the Housatonic garage.
