Scott County to Hold Public Input Meeting on Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan

A public meeting regarding an update to the Scott County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan (MHMP) will be held on:

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Regional Training Facility

17706 Valley View Drive

Jordan, MN  55352

The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan details the natural and man-made hazards that face the County and identifies specific mitigation strategies and actions to reduce the impact of disasters.

This is a multi-jurisdictional plan that covers Scott County, including the 11 townships, the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community and the cities of Belle Plaine, Elko New Market, Jordan, New Prague, Prior Lake, Savage, and Shakopee.  The risks and mitigation activities identified in the Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan also incorporate the concerns and needs of townships, school districts, watershed districts, and other entities participating in this plan.  The Emergency Management division of the Scott County Sheriff’s Office will be facilitating the planning process.

Public input is a required step in the Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan planning process.  Community members and representatives from townships are strongly encouraged to attend this public meeting. 

“The meeting will provide local residents, businesses, agencies and organizations an opportunity to learn about the draft plan,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “We encourage our community partners and citizens to attend and ask questions, provide feedback on mitigation strategies, and recommend actions to limit or reduce the impact of natural and man-made hazards in Scott County.” 

A copy of the current Scott County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is available for public review at   

Comments or questions on the plan or the public meeting may be directed to Ron Holbeck, Deputy Emergency Management Director, (952)496-8181 or
