Are you interested in the impact of severe weather like flooding, heavy snow and storm impact on your community?

The Town’s Hazard Mitigation Committee will soon be meeting to begin its work to update the existing Hazard Mitigation Plan. Our work will include assessing natural hazards that could impact Henniker, recalling recent past and potential natural disasters, severe weather events and other hazard events, and identifying critical facilities, vulnerable areas and at-risk populations. The Committee will review existing mitigation capabilities and develop long-term risk reduction mitigation actions to help alleviate the impact of these events to Henniker’s people, buildings and property.

You or another representative from your group are cordially invited to attend and participate in the series of Henniker Hazard Mitigation Committee meetings. The Committee will meet remotely via Zoom Webinar or you can join us in-person (hybrid meetings) at the Henniker Town Hall.

We are encouraging any interested stakeholders, engaged citizens, employees, representatives of businesses or organizations, and people of all ages to attend the Committee meetings and participate in hazard mitigation discussion and decision-making. We value the knowledge and unique perspective you could bring to this planning process. Interested? Send me your email address so we can email you unique Zoom login credentials and the Committee’s meeting materials. The public may join from the general Zoom credentials noted above and additional meeting details will be posted on the Town website at An updated draft Hazard Mitigation Plan will be available in spring 2025.
