Bay County Hazard Mitigation Plan

In March of 2019, Bay County, in conjunction with the Eastern Michigan Council of Governments, began the process of updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan. The development of this plan has been a conjoined effort between the municipalities of Bay County, citizen volunteers and other concerned stakeholders throughout Bay County.

On November 16th, 2021 the completed plan entered one of the final phases of approval. A 30-day comment period is now open for any concerned entity to provide feedback on the plan before it proceeds to FEMA and the State of Michigan for approval. Once it has been approved by both FEMA and the State of Michigan, it will return to Bay County for adoption by the Bay County Board of Commissioners and the local municipalities. 

If you are interested in providing feedback on the plan while the 30-day comment period is open, the plan is available below for your reading. Then you may send any comments you have to Ryan Manz, Bay County Emergency Management Coordinator manzr@baycounty.net
