Make plans to join Owen County Emergency Management from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Friday, March 24, 2023, for the Northern Kentucky Hazard Mitigation Plan Community-Focused Meeting to provide input on future hazard mitigation planning in your community—Owen County, the City of Gratz, and the City of Owenton. During the meeting, we will have roundtable discussions based on jurisdiction. The meeting will take place at the Owen County Courthouse, 100 North Thomas Street, Owenton.
Mitigation planning is the foundation for guiding risk reduction investments. These investments build community resilience to future natural hazard events. The local mitigation planning process brings partners together to inform a risk reduction strategy that can be implemented using a wide range of public and private resources. Local mitigation plans demonstrate the commitment to mitigation across multiple sectors, such as Infrastructure and economic development, to reduce natural hazard risk.
