Public Information Meeting
Help Update Hillsborough County’s
All-Hazards and Floodplain Management Plan
Hillsborough County residents and business owners, including those in Tampa, Temple Terrace
and Plant City, are invited to participate in developing the community’s risk mitigation strategy
by providing feedback on the update to Hillsborough County’s Local Mitigation Strategy and Floodplain Management Plan (LMS).
The LMS is the all-hazards guide developed to provide the community information about the
risks – such as floods, wildfires, tornados, thunderstorms, and hurricanes – that they could
possibly face while living in Hillsborough County. It also includes the mitigation techniques that
residents, businesses, and local government may implement to help lessen the risks.
The meetings will have an open house format, and Public Works Hazard Mitigation staff will:
• Answer questions and receive suggestions from residents
• Provide information about what local government is doing to mitigate hazards
• Present the process of how the LMS is being updated
• Explain how residents can take action to protect their families, businesses, and property
