Isabella Co. Hazard Mitigation Planning Effort Seeks Public Input on Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Isabella County Hazard Mitigation Planning Effort is looking for public input on their Hazard Mitigation Plan.

Isabella County has experienced several local emergencies and disasters in recent years, including floods and the coronavirus pandemic.

Every five years, the County updates its Hazard Mitigation Plan to identify the greatest threats and hazards facing the community and how they can best mitigate the impacts.

Officials say hazard mitigation is any effort to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to human life and property. Long term solutions can be implemented to reduce impacts on residents, families, homes, infrastructure and natural resources.

The goal of hazard mitigation is to save lives, property and natural resources by reducing the community’s vulnerability to emergency disasters.

Residents and other community stakeholders are invited to engage in this vital planning process by completing a brief survey.

Results will inform planners what specific hazards cause the most concern, and identify community assets to protect.

The survey is open to all individuals to live, work and play in Isabella County. It will take about ten minutes.

You can take the survey by clicking here. Survey deadline is March 28.
