Litchfield Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The Town of Litchfield, in conjunction with the Nashua Regional Planning Commission, is in the process of updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan. We strongly encourage all residents, members of the business community, and other interested individuals to participate in the update process.

The Litchfield Hazard Mitigation Plan Update will examine changes in development and mitigation priorities that have occurred since the 2018 Plan. It will also address natural hazards in the Town, previous occurrences of these hazards, the probability of future hazard events, and the vulnerability of Litchfield’s critical facilities to these hazards. The Plan will conclude by identifying and prioritizing mitigation actions to reduce Litchfield’s vulnerability to natural hazards. The webpage will be updated throughout the planning process and includes meeting times, locations, agendas, and updated documents.

For additional information or to participate in the Plan update, please contact Cassie Cashin at or (603) 417-6570 x6567.
