Santa Fe County Solicits Public Input Into Hazard Mitigation Plan; Additional Public Meetings Announced

Santa Fe, NM — Santa Fe County is updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMAP), a planning effort that aims to identify and develop mitigation strategies for the various hazards that may impact the unincorporated area of the County. Public input from diverse stakeholders is critical to its success.

Four additional public meetings, three in-person and one virtual, are being scheduled for February and March to gather input from constituents. Members of the public are encouraged to attend.

Dates, times, and locations of the three in-person meetings are as follows:

Date: Thursday, February 15, 2024
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Location: Santa Fe County Fire Station 80, 645 Old Las Vegas Highway, Santa Fe, NM 87505

Date: Wednesday, March 6, 2024
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Location: Santa Fe County Fire Station 70, Municipal Way, Edgewood, NM 87015

Date: Thursday, March 7, 2024
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Location: Santa Fe County Fire Station 50, 17919 U.S. 84/285

In addition, a virtual public meeting will soon be announced that will allow members of the public to participate remotely. Residents may also participate in a survey to provide the planning team valuable information that will be used in the development of the HMAP and educate the planning team's approach.
