Nahant’s Hazard Mitigation Plan

The 2021 Hazard Mitigation Plan was prepared for the Town of Nahant by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) under the direction of the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR). The plan was funded by the Federal Management Agency’s (FEMA) Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Grant Program.

The Town’s previous Hazard Mitigation Plan was completed in 2014. Communities are required to create and adopt a plan every five years to be eligible for FEMA grants. This current plan has been approved by FEMA and MEMA.

The last step was to have the Board of Selectmen officially adopt the plan which was done at the Board of Selectmen meeting on February 16, 2022.
