Fremont County, CO Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan - Public Involvement/Participation

Canon City is partnering with Fremont County to develop the County's Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan. Community input and involvement is instrumental in the development of a mitigation plan update that truly reflects the perceptions and needs of Fremont County residents.

A community survey has been developed; we would like as much input from Fremont County residents, businesses and interested citizens as possible. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey so that your ideas may become a part of the plan to make Fremont County a safer and more resilient county to natural hazards!

Community Survey Link

If you have any questions concerning this survey, please don't hesitate to contact Laura Johnston at or 303-312-8807.
