We are pleased to notify the community that the Southborough Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) update project is complete. The updated LHMP was approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and subsequently adopted by the Board of Selectmen in June 2021. The purpose of Local Hazard Mitigation Plan is to evaluate and assess the risks identified hazards pose to the town, review and assess past disaster occurrences and through the engagement of the whole community set goals to mitigate potential risks to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people, property and environment from natural, man-made and technological hazards. This Plan also provides the Town of Southborough with access to grant funding opportunities from the Federal Emergency Management Agency intended to reduce vulnerabilities to future hazards and disasters. A letter with further information about the project is included in the list of files at the bottom of this page, and an overview of the plan, and links to access the full 2021-2026 Southborough HMP are available for review and download.
