2019 Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The Syracuse-Onondaga County Planning Agency (SOCPA) is tasked with regularly updating the original 2013 Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP).  This plan is required by state and federal agencies in order for communities in Onondaga County to be eligible for certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance, including funding for mitigation projects.  The ultimate goal of hazard mitigation is to reduce loss of life and property, lessening the impact of disasters.

 

The plan update includes an updated hazard risk and vulnerability assessment, new mitigation strategies, current jurisdictional annexes for participating jurisdictions in the County (e.g., city, towns, and villages), new NYS Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES) requirements (e.g., assessing critical facilities, plan for climate change, and plan for displaced residents and evacuation/sheltering), and a plan maintenance strategy.

 

How Can I Participate?

This webpage will be used throughout the planning process to post information, collect comments, announce meetings, and to post draft and final documents. 

The draft 2019 Hazard Mitigation Plan update is now available.  Click here to view the draft plan.
