The 2022 Northern Virginia Hazard Mitigation Plan is nearing its completion and the final draft is now available and open for public comment, which includes Prince William County and its Towns. The public comment period will be open from September 8, 2022 through October 8, 2022. The 2022 NOVA HMP is a multi-jurisdictional plan that covers the Counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William, the Cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and Manassas Park, and the Towns of Clifton, Dumfries, Haymarket, Herndon, Leesburg, Lovettsville, Middleburg, Occoquan, Purcellville, Quantico, Round Hill, and Vienna. The plan update also incorporates the concerns and needs of other stakeholder participants. Hazard mitigation is any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from hazards. A hazard mitigation plan identifies the hazards a community or region faces, assesses their vulnerability to the hazards and identifies specific actions that can be taken to reduce the risk from the hazards.
