​​​The 2017 Hazard_Mitigation_Plan (PDF) was approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in November 2017. Hazard mitigation means reducing the impact of hazards on people and property. A hazard mitigation plan identifies hazards and enables us to increase our resiliency to the risks by developing a strategy to reduce. 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. ​

2022 Plan Update ​​

The City of Ann Arbor 2022 Hazard Mitigation Plan update is underway.  

Public Meeting 

A virtual public meeting was held on April 6, which was the first public planning meeting of the plan development process and provided an opportunity for the public to be involved. The meeting provide an overview of the planning process and an opportunity to weigh in on hazards of concern (e.g., excessive heat and flooding) and potential projects that could reduce impacts. 

The city's Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), comprised of agencies across the city, met on April 13. The TAC team will continue to meet throughout the plan update process in order to identify action items that are needed within the plan update. 

Online Survey

The public also is invited to provide feedback via an online survey by May 6 at Input will help us identify how Ann Arbor residents experience local hazards, activities individuals have taken to prepare for local hazards, and activities the city could be taking to enhance city-wide preparedness and resilience.
