The Town of New Milford will host a public information meeting to discuss the preparation of a Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan for the town May 14.

The meeting will be held at 5:45 p.m. in the E. Paul Martin Room at Roger Sherman Town Hall at 10 Main St.

The purpose of a Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan is to identify potential natural hazards and associated risks, existing capabilities to address risks, and activities that can be undertaken by the community to prevent potential injury and property damage associated with identified natural hazards.
