YOUR input is vital to this plan. The draft is available for public review now and public comments will be accepted through Friday, February 19, 2016. The City is eager to hear from the public about the draft before sending it to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for approval.

A "Local Hazard Mitigation Plan" is a written plan for reducing the potential for harm of natural disasters throughout our community. In other words, if we consider what could happen during a natural disaster and put strategies and resources in place before it happens, we could reduce the number of lives lost, injuries occurring and properties damaged. By planning ahead for what COULD happen, we hope to save lives and reduce property damage if something does happen.
