What is a Steering Committee?
A committee made up of elected stakeholder representatives from within the planning area will oversee this plan update process. This committee makeup includes the following representation:

- Citizens
- Academia
- State Emergency Management
- County Emergency Management
- Municipal planning partners
- Special District planning partners
- Business interests

The Steering Committee will meet regularly throughout this process and provide direction and guidance to the planning team on implementation of the scope of work for this process. The Steering Committee will determine the goals and objectives for the plan, the public involvement strategy, review the risk assessment, and provide input to the planning team on the assembly of the plan. All Steering Committee meetings are open to the public and the dates and times of these meeting are posted on the Hazard Mitigation Plan website.
