Hazard Mitigation Plan

-A A +A

Natural hazards are a part of life throughout Ulster County. All of our hazards have the potential to cause property loss, loss of life, economic hardship, and threats to public health and safety. An important part of emergency management invovles hazard mitigation, which is, essentially, actions and projects undertaken to protect things before they get damaged. A hazard mitiation plan describes the hazards that can occur in a community, and then present actions and projects that will be done to reduce risks. The Town will be joining the Ulster County Multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan, which the County is currently updating. 

Adopting an approved Hazard Mitigation Plan opens the door for the Town to be eligble to apply for Hazard Mitigation Project grants, elevations and acquisitions.

The following documents are currently being considered for inclusion in the Ulster County Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan. Any questions, concerns, discussions, proposed actions or ideas should be directed to Stacy Delarede, Building Inspector.
