Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The City of Sugar Land is working to update the 2020 Hazard Mitigation Plan (Plan). The goal of the Hazard Mitigation Plan is to minimize or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from known hazards by identifying and implementing cost-effective mitigation actions.

FEMA requires a Hazard Mitigation Plan to be updated every five years. The City has established a Steering Committee that is multi-disciplined and represents the entire planning partnership to update the Plan. The Steering Committee will meet bi-monthly through the course of this update process. The Steering Committee meetings are open to the public.

Residents, neighboring communities, and stakeholders are invited to participate in the Plan update and public comments will be received at Steering Committee meetings.
