Hazard Mitigation Planning
Like many towns in Vermont, the Town of Shaftsbury has a formally adopted Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Plan, which is produced in collaboration with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the State's Department of Emergency Management (DEM), identifies potential natural hazards that could affect the community, and the steps the community can take to reduce risks and damage from those natural hazards. The Plan is updated and revised every five years. The Hazard Mitigation Planning Team began updating the 2015 Plan in the summer of 2020. The goals of the existing Plan include In addition to guiding the Select Board and Town Departments in budgeting and planning for infrastructure improvements, adopted Plans make communities potentially eligible for several federal and state grant programs. Towns with FEMA-approved Hazard Mitigation Plans are also potentially eligible for greater funding following declared disasters.
