Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan

The Sangamon County Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan survey is now live. You can use this LINK or the URL below to take the survey. The survey will be available from now until the morning of Monday, June 6, 2022. The survey works best in Chrome, Firefox, or Safari web browsers or by copying the link into Google.

The Springfield-Sangamon County Regional Planning Commission will coordinate an update to the Sangamon County Multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan. An updated plan helps the county and its cities and villages better prepare for natural hazards. A Task Force of representatives from the cities and villages, community organizations, county and state agencies, and the public will guide the planning process.

The Task Force's first meeting is Thursday, March 24, 2022, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., in the County Board Chamber,  2nd Floor of the Sangamon County Building, 200 S. 9th Street, Springfield. The meetings are open to the public, and we welcome public participation.
