Past Meeting Information



About the ANHMP



The Lake County All Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (ANHMP) was adopted by Lake County and 52 participating municipalities in 2012. The ANHMP allows the County and municipalities to be eligible for hazard mitigation grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA requires that the ANHMP be updated every five years.

The Mitigation Plan identifies activities and projects to reduce the damages caused by natural hazards such as tornadoes, floods, and severe summer and winter storms. Mitigation means anything that can be done to reduce the impact of a natural hazard.

Public Input Needed



Public input and comments are important to the ANHMP Plan update. All Lake County residents and property owners are encouraged to complete a short survey.

Survey responses provided will help Lake County prioritize natural hazards that could impact residents and property owners, and to determine how to be better prepared for natural hazard emergencies.
