Best Practice Designation
July 16, 2016
JCC collaborated with the Pionner Valley Planning Commission to update/develop Hazard Mitigation Plans for three communities in Western Massachusetts. These communities are South Hadley, Ludlow and Blandford. The South Hadley plan was approved by FEMA in July 2016. During the review process, the region commented that they love how we did a side by side comparison of hazards from the State Plan and the Town's previous plan and they would like to use it as an example in their Best Practices Guides!
