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 will be updating Everett's Hazard Mitigation Plan and developing new action items using guidance we receive from the community and subject matter experts. We will be hosting 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. After a draft of the plan is completed, we will host an open house some time in the fall.

Community input is an important aspect of the planning process. Our meeting dates are listed below, please contact our office if you are interested in attending.
