The 2017 City of Ann Arbor Hazard Mitigation Plan (PDF) was approved by FEMA in November 2017. Hazard mitigation means reducing the impact of hazards on people and property. A hazard mitigation plan identifies current and projected natural, man-made and technological hazard risks that may impact Ann Arbor and works to develop a strategy to reduce these risks. The completed 2017 plan, enables the city to not only increase its resilience to hazards, but maintain its eligibility for state and federal hazard mitigation funding. The plan update is required every five years. The 2017 update was completed with federal grant funding assistance.
