Hazard Mitigation Plan Draft ready for public review!
Please review the November 17, 2020 (Draft) Samish Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). The purpose of this document is to recognize critical Samish facilities, address the various natural hazards that may impact those facilities, and to consider potential projects and ideas to mitigate the impact of these hazards on the facilities.
This is the draft that we will finalize and submit to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Once the plan is approved by FEMA and Samish Tribal Council, we will become eligible for various funding to assist our mitigation efforts.
Your interest and comments are most welcomed and encouraged. Comments can be emailed to David Strich or Bev O'Dea using the Samish Plan Review Comment Matrix and will be accepted through December 2, 2020.
