The City of Johnston, on behalf of Polk County and the Des Moines Metropolitan Planning Organization, is seeking public comment now through Monday, March 25, 2019, on the Polk County Hazard Mitigation Plan.
The purpose of hazard mitigation is to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards. Polk County and participating jurisdictions developed this multi-jurisdictional local hazard mitigation plan update to reduce future losses to the County and its communities resulting from hazard events. The plan was prepared pursuant to the requirements of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 and to achieve eligibility for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Assistance Grant Programs.Click here to review the plan and provide comments
