2016 Matagorda County Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The City of Palacios and Matagorda County are currently updating The Matagorda County Hazard Mitigation Plan.

Hazard mitigation planning enables action to reduce the loss of life and property, therefore lessening the impact of disasters. Hazard mitigation involves strategies such as planning, policy changes, programs, projects, and other activities that can mitigate the impacts of hazards. We are required to update the plan every 5 years to ensure the strategies are current.

Citizens are encouraged to review the draft plan by following the link below and then selecting Matagorda County or a hard copy can be reviewed at City Hall.

The City will receive public comments on the Draft 2016 Matagorda County Hazard Mitigation Plan on February 9, 2016 beginning at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers of City Hall, 311 Henderson Avenue, Palacios, TX
