The 2022 Hazard Mitigation Plan (PDF) was approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) after final approval by City Council on November 10, 2022. Hazard mitigation means reducing the impact of hazards on people and property. A hazard mitigation plan identifies hazards and creates a strategy for dealing with those risks. The plan enables the city to increase resilience to hazards, and maintain eligibility for hazard mitigation funding. The plan update is required every five years.
