It's Time to Adopt the Lake County All Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan!

The Lake County All Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (ANHMP) has been conditionally approved by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This is a conditional approval because it requires the County and our municipal partners to adopt the plan in order for it to be considered fully approved.

For your community to apply for flood buyouts and qualify for other mitigation projects, your municipality must adopt this plan before November 14, 2017.

Adoption Instructions:
1.Download the final 2017 Lake County All Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan, Executive Summary, and FAQs.
2.Edit the “[Sample Municipal] RESOLUTION”, as appropriate, for your community.
3.Present the resolution to your Council or Board before November 14, 2017.
