LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — The Central Virginia Planning District Commission (CVPDC) invites the public to take part in the 2020 pre-disaster plan update by taking a survey.
The survey is open through Dec. 13 at www.cvpdc.org.
According to Virginia’s Region 2000 Local Government Council, The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act requires local governments “to develop and maintain a plan every five years that examines natural disaster risk and impacts and establishes strategies to mitigate or lessen, human and property impacts.”
The plan covers the following areas: to Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford and Campbell counties, the City of Lynchburg, and the Towns of Altavista, Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford and Brookneal.
In addition to completing a survey to provide input, the public can also attend a public meeting to learn about the pre-disaster plan and provide feedback.
The next upcoming meeting will be held at the Miller Center, located at 301 Grove St. in Lynchburg, on Wednesday, Dec. 4 from 5:30 – 7 p.m.
