Spring Runoff & Community Preparedness Meetings

In an effort to inform residents about the risks associated with the upcoming post-flood spring runoff, Boulder County hosted Spring Runoff & Community Preparedness Meetings.

These meetings included information about potential spring runoff and summer flooding hazards, emergency preparedness measures, and updates about recovery projects such as the Comprehensive Creek Planning Initiative, FEMA buyout program, CDBG-DR funding, flood insurance, and housing assistance. Additionally the County presented an assessment of hazardous conditions and possible mitigation strategies such as debris removal, creek bank stabilization and channel restoration. The Long-Term Flood Recovery Group of Boulder County also provided information about resources to meet individual unmet needs.

Meetings featured a presentation with information about county recovery efforts. Staff information tables were set up in order to help answer specific questions or connect residents to the right team for a follow-up discussion. Resource guides, preparedness guides and literature for other recovery, rebuilding or preparedness programs were provided.

Videos of the meeting held in Longmont on March 10th, 2014 are posted on the Videos page.
