Long-Term Recovery Committee established to offer strategic emergency planning

Using a model endorsed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the State of Connecticut’s Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS), Granby’s Board of Selectman directed the establishment of a Long-Term Recovery Committee (LTRC). 

The LTRC is composed of Granby citizens and configured to represent all members of the community. Part of the committee’s responsibility is to develop plans on how to assist residents and businesses affected by long term disasters, including but not restricted to COVID-19. It is important to note that this may include referrals for assistance not associated with any of the town’s municipal departments.

As part of a long-term plan, the LTRC will be distributing a survey to collect data that will help identify the needs of the community. Granby residents will receive a postcard in the mail with information on how to fill out the survey online. There will also be  paper surveys available in the Granby Library Foyer, at the Waste Not Want Not Dinner and at Lost Acres Orchard by the end of September.

Based upon the analysis of the information received, the LTRC hopes to be able to offer a strategic plan to the Board of Selectman and non-governmental entities.
