Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Now Available for Public Review and Comment

A draft of Hinsdale County’s updated Hazard Mitigation Plan is now available for public review and comment. The plan assesses risks posed by natural and man-made hazards, identifies ways to reduce those risks, and allows Hinsdale County to be eligible for funding from FEMA. In addition, the plan identifies goals and a variety of projects that will help to reduce losses from hazard events before they occur. A Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee (HMPC) including representatives from Hinsdale County, Town of Lake City and other community stakeholders has worked to update the current plan over the past nine months.

Public comment on the draft plan is now being sought. The plan can be downloaded for review by clicking here (large file). Comments can be submitted here. Following the public comment period, the plan will be finalized and submitted for FEMA review and approval. Public comments will be accepted until December 2, 2019.

A hard copy of the plan draft is also available for review at the Hinsdale County Administration Officer, 311 N. Henson Street, Lake City.
