Flood Mitigation Plan Update

The Flood Mitigation Plan (FMP) was developed in conjunction with the Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) Update.  This same process was used in 2017 for the HMP and previous FMP. While the HMP update process includes both coastal hazards and flood chapters, along with flood-related mitigation strategies, the intent of the FMP is not to duplicate the information within the HMP. The Flood Mitigation Plan compliments and expands upon the HMP.  The FMP further develops and refines flood mitigation data, analysis, and mitigation strategies.
