The Snohomish County Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan is set up in two volumes so that the portions specific to the planning partners can be distinguished from those that apply to the whole planning area:
Volume 1 includes a description of the planning process, public involvement strategy, goals and objectives, a countywide hazard identification and vulnerability analysis, countywide mitigation initiatives and a plan maintenance strategy.
Volume 2 includes all the jurisdiction-specific elements required by Section 201.6 of 44 CFR; summaries of risk assessment and proposed mitigation actions for each planning partner. This volume also includes linkage procedures for eligible non-participating jurisdictions that may wish to adopt this plan in the future.
