EAST GREENWICH â€” A public hearing was held during the East Greenwich Planning Boardâ€™s meeting last Wednesday evening to share updates on the hazard mitigation plan that will help the Town be ready if an emergency poses a threat to East Greenwich.
Peter Cusolito, a Senior Security & Emergency Management Consultant for VHB, which has an office in Providence, gave both the Planning Board and the public a half-hour presentation identifying the needs of addressing some trouble spots in East Greenwich in order to be prepared for a natural disaster, weather-related or otherwise.
The Town initially implemented a hazard mitigation plan back in 2006, according to Planning Director Lisa Bourbonnais, and itâ€™s required to be updated every five years. She also stated that the process of updating the plan began a couple years ago and found that there were things â€śthat [the Town] could down on [its] own,â€ť after going through the process most of the way.
