Ulster County initiated the process for development of its initial Hazard Mitigation Plan in 2007. The County and 12 of its 24 jurisdictions opted to participate. This plan was later approved by FEMA in 2009 for all participating jurisdictions. The 2009 plan can be viewed by clicking the link below.
This plan must be updated and re-approved by FEMA on a five-year cycle. This marks the first of the plan's formal updates since its inception. In August 2013, the planning team initiated the process for the first of the plan's formal updates since its inception. All 24 of the County's municipalities are once again being invited to participate. A draft of the plan update is targeted for release in August.
