Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The City of Everett has experienced damage from hazards such as flooding, severe weather, and earthquakes in the past.  We cannot always prevent hazards from happening, but we can plan now to reduce risk for a better recovery. This City's Hazard Mitigation Plan represents the City's commitment to reduce risks from natural hazards, and will serve as a reference in committing future resources for hazard impact reduction.

Throughout 2017, we updated Everett's Hazard Mitigation Plan and developed new action items using guidance we received from the community and subject matter experts. We hosted a series of meetings to focus on different areas including: unreinforced masonry structures, downtown/business district, port and industrial area, Smith Island, and the whole community.

A copy of the updated plan is available here. This plan is still pending adoption by the City Council. Click here to view the 2018 Hazard Mitigation Plan.
