2022-2027 Plan

The Five County Association of Governments began a plan update of the Multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan in July 2020. The current plan is set to expire in spring of 2022.

This update will provide more detailed strategy for the incorporated cities and towns in the region in addition to the county and regional-level strategy seen in past iterations of the plan document.


Progress, meetings, and news about the 2022 NHMP update will be posted here as they are available.
