Capitol Region Natural Hazards Mitigation Planning
The Capitol Region has a Capitol Region Pre-Disaster Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan which was approved by FEMA on September 24, 2008, and adopted by all the participating municipalities. The final version can be accessed below.
This project identified natural hazard risks and vulnerabilities, and strategies for reducing losses regionally and in each member municipality. Once towns formally adopt the plan, they will become eligible to apply for FEMA hazard mitigation project grants. The plan expires in 2013 and must be updated if towns want to continue to be eligible for these FEMA grants.
The Plan contains numerous maps, and therefore, had to be broken down to reduce the sizes of the following files.
