The Multiple Hazard Mitigation Plan (MHMP) analyzes any natural hazards that may affect the Town and the Town’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 Town 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:

  • Significant new development that has occurred since 2012 and how it could be impacted by natural hazards;
  • ​​Changes in natural hazards impacts;
  • Analysis and revision of proposed natural hazard mitigation projects list; and 
  • Overall streamlining and reorganizing of the Plan.
