Hazard Mitigation Plan Public Meeting & Survey

The City of Port Isabel held a public meeting on Tuesday, September 22nd to gather public input for the Council of Cities Hazard Mitigation Plan during the Port Isabel City Commission meeting. The meeting was at 7:00 p.m. at the City Commission Chambers Meeting Room, 305 Maxan Street, Port Isabel, Texas 78578. The communities included in the Council of Cities Hazard Mitigation Plan are Los Fresnos, Laguna Vista, Port Isabel, Primera, Rio Hondo, San Benito, South Padre Island, Bayview, Indian Lake, and Rancho Viejo. The public is invited and encouraged to attend the meeting.


The purpose of the public meeting is to provide a project overview from H2O Partners, consultant to the project, and solicit information from citizens. Public input will help the project team to identify and analyze potential hazards affecting residents and recommend possible actions to reduce their impact. Hazards can include droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, and other major disasters.

The goal of the Hazard Mitigation Plan is to minimize or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from known hazards by identifying and implementing cost-effective mitigation actions. Mitigation is defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as sustained actions taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards and their effects.


Questions about the Hazard Mitigation Plan should be addressed to H2O Partners, planning consultants for the project. Contact Heather Ferrara with H2O Partners by email at heather@h2opartnersusa.com.
