Our community has completed a public draft of the 2022 City of Saint Paul Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update. Over past few months, we have worked with a consultant to assess risks posed by natural disasters and develop strategies to protect life and property in the City of Saint Paul from future hazard events.
Hazards addressed in our plan include the following: climate change, earthquake, erosion, hazardous material event (ammonia spill), infectious disease, severe weather, tsunami, volcano, and wildfire.
Once our plan is finalized and approved by FEMA, our community will be eligible to apply for and receive certain types of nonemergency disaster assistance, including funding for mitigation projects identified in our plan.

A copy of our plan is available to review until July 8. Community members are invited to comment on this draft until that time. To obtain a copy of the plan as well as provide comments, contact Phillip Zavadil: firstname.lastname@example.org.
