2023 Monroe County Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

For the past few months, Monroe County, along with its 30 municipalities has been in the process of updating the 2017 Hazard Mitigation Plan; and the 2023 Update is now available for public review and comment. The plan focuses on existing and future buildings, infrastructure, and critical facilities that natural disasters might impact. Ultimately, the mitigation projects identified and implemented will reduce vulnerability and enable communities to become more resilient to disasters.

The County profiled the hazards and their potential consequences that may impact Monroe County and its municipalities, and identified assets that are subject to losses or damage. It estimated the potential losses that could result from each type of hazard. The County and its municipalities have also developed a mitigation strategy that includes the identification of hazard mitigation goals as well as a prioritized list of actions designed to reduce losses.

The draft plan has been submitted to NYS DHSES and FEMA for review and approval. Once approved, the final plan will be posted here.
