2020-2025 Ontonagon County Hazard Mitigation Plan Draft Available for Review – CLOSED

Ontonagon County has worked with the Western UP Planning and Development Region (WUPPDR) to develop the Ontonagon County 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 Ontonagon County Hazard Mitigation Plan will be available through November 23, 2020 for public review and comment prior to plan adoption.

Copies of the plan draft will be available at WUPPDR (400 Quincy St.) in Hancock and at the Ontonagon County Clerk’s Office (725 Greenland Rd.) in Ontonagon, and; online at https://www.wuppdr.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/OntoCoHazMitPlan_DRAFT.pdf

Written comments will be considered by WUPPDR in cooperation with Ontonagon County, as appropriate. Comments must be received by November 23, 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.
