To maintain the Community Rating System (CRS) status within the National Flood Insurance Program, the Town of Huntersville is required to provide an annual progress report on the implementation of each of the mitigation actions the town proposed in the Mecklenburg County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). The objective of this evaluation is to ensure that there is a continual and responsive planning process that will keep the HMP plan dynamic and responsive to the needs and capabilities of all the jurisdictions. Link to 2022 Implementation Report.
The HMP was developed in response to requirements of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. The initial version was completed in 2005 and since then, there have been updates every five years. The current version of plan was adopted by the Town Council on October 19, 2020 and approved by FEMA as of January 4, 2021. The current HMP is available from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Emergency Management website at: https://charlottenc.gov/EmergencyManagement/Plans/Pages/default.aspx.
