Tri-County Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan

January 2019

Updated November 2020

Our Role

Tri-County partnered with American Environmental Corporation to update, featuring more participating jurisdictions than the previous version, the region’s hazard mitigation plan. The planning process started in August 2017.

The Mitigation Advisory Committee, or MAC, was formed and met on five separate occasions: October 2017; March 2018; June 2018; September 2018; and January 2019. During these five meetings, the MAC discussed past natural hazards, dollars of damage, and potential projects that will mitigate future damage from events such as tornadoes, severe storms, floods, and drought.

Through this process, the MAC has identified over 180 regional projects and activities that have the potential to alleviate future regional damage from natural hazards. These preventative steps, such as conducting studies, hardening infrastructure, designating shelters, developing educational materials, and evaluating critical facilities, can potentially save the region money, reduce property damage, and limit the loss of life.
