La Marque, TX. June 4-5, 2019.

Local elected officials and municipal staff are invited to learn about the connections between good planning, hazard mitigation, and environmental stewardship through first-person perspectives and case study examples. Texas Citizen Planner is an innovative program for community leaders to learn about integrating community hazard mitigation approaches with local planning practices. The art of good planning is about injecting long-term considerations into near-term actions. Communities that integrate hazard mitigation principals and factor in long-term risks into their existing plans stand to make their communities more resilient and less prone to disasters.

Regional workshop to be held in La Marque.
