The Tri-County Hazard Mitigation Plan was developed to guide Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties in a risk-based approach to become more resilient to the impacts of natural hazards through mitigation planning. The Plan documents historical disasters, assesses probabilistic disasters through tools such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) analyses, and addresses specific strategies to mitigate the potential impacts of these disasters.
The Tri-County Hazard Mitigation Plan:
Identifies areas of risk and assesses the potential cost and magnitude.
Establishes strategies and priorities to mitigate risk from natural and technological hazards.
Identifies specific mitigation projects to pursue for each identified hazard.
Guides the communities in their risk management activities and minimizes conflicts among agencies.
Establishes eligibility for future mitigation program funds.
