Local Input Requested on Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan

The Northwest Hills Council of Governments is preparing an update to the “Litchfield Hills Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan” prepared in 2006. A draft of the updated section prepared for our town is available for review by clicking the following link:

Colebrook Risk Assessment

The NHCOG is accepting public comments on the draft report through the end of July.

The purpose of the region’s Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan is to identify measures that can be implemented today to lessen the severity of a natural hazard that might strike tomorrow.  In recent years, the 11-town Litchfield Hills Region has been hard hit by severe winter storms, high winds, and flooding.  These three types of events represent the major natural hazards of concern in the region.   All three events can pose a threat to public safety, and the buildings and infrastructure in the regional area.

Comments on the draft town plan section can be directed to our municipal Emergency Management Director or Rick Lynn from the Northwest Hills Council of Governments at (860-491-9884). The individual town reports for the 11-town region, along with a regional analysis, will be compiled into a final report for submission to DEEP and FEMA.  In addition to identifying priority hazard mitigation measures, the report is required by FEMA in order for the town to qualify for pre-disaster mitigation funding.

Colebrook/Norfolk School Study

COLEBROOK/NORFOLK REGIONALIZATION STUDY – INFORMATION SESSION Colebrook and Norfolk school board members, town officials and members of each community have been conducting a year-long study to determine the advisability of Norfolk and Colebrook school districts merging into one regional elementary school district. An important characteristic of this merger would be that Colebrook Consolidated School will close and all elementary students will attend Botelle School in Norfolk. Prior to submitting the study to the Connecticut State Board of Education, the committee wishes to share its findings with each community to answer questions and gain community input and opinions. The study committee has scheduled two information sessions, one on May 20th at 7:00 PM at Botelle School in Norfolk and the other on May 22nd at 7:00 PM at Colebrook Consolidated School. A copy of the draft report is available for your review on the school website and click on Colebrook/Norfolk Regional Plan Draft 2. Copies are also available at Colebrook Town Hall and Colebrook Consolidated School. This study will have a great impact on the future of Colebrook Consolidated School. All parents and other community members are encouraged to attend one of the information meetings.
