Hazard Mitigation Plan Update 

Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Town of Barnstable is currently updating the Barnstable Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) and is seeking public comment at this time.

Draft plan for public comment can be found here:


Please provide all comments to james.kupfer@town.barnstable.ma.us by March 18, 2022.

The Town of Barnstable is currently updating the Barnstable Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). The HMP is a planning document that is required by both FEMA and MEMA to be updated every 5 years in order to remain eligible for certain funding opportunities. The Planning and Development department is the lead coordinator in an interdepartmental effort to update the plan.

The purpose of the plan is to identify and profile the town’s risk and vulnerability to potential natural hazards. Specifically, this plan assesses the potential impacts of hurricanes, winter storms, shoreline change/coastal erosion, earthquakes, drought/wildfire, and dam failure and identifies properties, resources, and critical facilities which may be impacted by these hazard events. The plan identifies mitigation strategies and actions aimed at reducing the loss of or damage to life, property, infrastructure and natural, cultural, and economic resources.  A corresponding implementation plan will then be prepared to address the prioritization and administration of the identified strategies and actions.
