2020-2025 Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Hazard Mitigation Plan Draft Available for Review – CLOSED

Keweenaw Bay Indian Community has recently worked with the Western UP Planning and Development Region (WUPPDR) to develop the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Hazard Mitigation Plan. Hazard mitigation is any action taken before, during or after a disaster to eliminate or reduce the risk to human life and property from natural, technological, or human-related hazards. The plan’s purpose is to identify hazard risks throughout the community and to become better prepared for them.

The draft of the 2020-2025 Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Hazard Mitigation Plan will be available through July 31, 2020 for public review and comment prior to plan adoption consideration by Tribal Council.


Copies of the plan draft will be available at WUPPDR (400 Quincy St.) in Hancock and at the Tribal Center (16429 Beartown Rd.) in Baraga, and; online at www.wuppdr.org and http://www.kbic-nsn.gov/index.php/download_file/1363/0


Written comments will be considered by WUPPDR in cooperation with Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, as appropriate. Comments must be received by July 31, 2020 and may be mailed to WUPPDR, 400 Quincy St., 8th Floor, Hancock, MI 49930 or emailed to Rachael Pressley, Assistant Regional Planner, at rpressley@wuppdr.org.
