Currently, we are participating with the County Office of Emergency Management to update the municipality's Hazard Mitigation Plan. The original plan was adopted several years ago and needs to be updated to maintain eligibility for certain federal grants as well as make sure we are working together to reduce the risk from natural disasters and hazards to the extent possible. If you are interested in learning more about this project, please visit the project website at http://nj4hmp.com. The website includes current information and also will allow you to submit any comments or questions.
As part of the on-going update of the Gloucester County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, a Draft Municipal Appendix is available for review that addresses natural hazard mitigation issues for our community. The Draft Municipal Appendix can be viewed and downloaded from This Link. Comments can be submitted via the “Contact Us” page on the website or to Chris Davis, Newfield Borough OEM Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org. The Newfield Borough Council will also include an opportunity for public comment during the regularly scheduled Borough Council meeting on May 12th.
