The update process for the Jefferson County/City of Port Townsend Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is current underway! The Mitigation Plan is an important document that outlines the significant hazards we face on the Olympic Peninsula as well as mitigation strategies and planning actions we can take to reduce harm and vulnerability.

After creating a Hazard Vulnerability Analysis, which identified a snapshot view of the relative risk of various hazards, we are requesting the general public to submit ideas and suggestion for mitigation projects at the follow link:
