Hazard Mitigation Task Force Meetings
Hazard Mitigation work meetings will be posted here as they become available. All meetings are open to the public. Benzie County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) meetings are held at 2:00 pm via Zoom and in-person at the Benzie County Board of Commissioners Room at 448 Court Place, Beulah, MI.

Update Process
Phase I: Data collection and community survey (The survey results were used to inform the priorities in the County's Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan.)

Phase II: Hazard identification and risk assessment

Phase III: Review and update hazard mitigation goals, priority areas, and implementation strategies.

Phase IV: Draft plan public comment period. Post the plan electronically and meet with the public for comments.  Incorporate feedback from the public review period and make final edits to the plan.

Phase V: Plan Adoption following successful plan review by FEMA. Facilitate the plan adoption process with the County Board of Commissioners and local officials.


Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
