The Multiple Hazard Mitigation Plan (MHMP) analyzes any natural hazards that may affect the City’s ability to deal with those natural hazards. The Plan – as required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) – is updated every 5 years, which allows the City to apply for pre-disaster and post-disaster funding.
The MHMP Working Group is the entity tasked with updating and implementing the Plan and is composed of various citizens and staff from the Community & Economic Development Division, Fire Department, DPW, and Police Department.
Elements focused on for the 2017 update include:
