Public comment open on draft 2022 Hazard Mitigation Plan

The City of Galveston has prepared an update to the local hazard mitigation plan, in accordance with 44 CFR, Part 201. This plan identifies the hazards, risks, and vulnerabilities specific to the City, and identifies specific mitigation actions that can address them. The completion of this plan allows the City to apply for and receive various federal mitigation grants, including from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The full plan is available at

As part of the plan development process, the City requests that any interested party review and comment on the draft of the plan. Public input is important to this process, and we welcome the opportunity to have your input as we work to mitigate our risks to natural hazards. 

Comments will be accepted until Friday, April 29, 2022, and may be emailed to our plan development consultant, Kelly George, at

Thank you for your interest in reducing the risks and vulnerabilities of our community!
