AHMP FINAL NATURAL
HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN-REVISED ON 9/22/10
Please contact Clerk Amber Jordan for information regarding the

WHAT IS HAZARD MITIGATION?
Natural hazards have the potential to cause property damage, loss
of life, economic hardship, and threats to public health and safety.
Hazard mitigation measures are the things you do today to be more
protected in the future. They are measures taken before a disaster
happens to reduce the impact that future disasters will have on
people and property in the community. Mitigation reduces the risk
of loss and creates a more disaster-resistant and sustainable community.
Hazard mitigation measures are essential to breaking the typical
disaster cycle of damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage.
PURPOSE AND NEED FOR THE PLAN
Hazard mitigation plans are developed BEFORE a disaster strikes.
The plans identify community policies, actions, and tools for long-term
implementation to reduce risk and potential for future losses. Adopted,
implemented and maintained on an ongoing basis, these plans will
gradually, but steadily, lessen the impacts associated with hazard
events. As of November 1, 2004 communities without a FEMA-approved
hazard mitigation plan are not eligible for FEMA project grant monies
under programs such as the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP),
Flood Mitigation Assistance Program (FMA) and Pre- Disaster Mitigation
Grant Program (PDM).

Route 22, these solar panels now provide electric power to the Pump
House and Highway Department Building. The panels were funded by a
grant from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority
(NYSERDA). The project was guided by Village Trustee Yosh Schulman.

Ave Sidewalk Replacement (completed May 15th)
Sidewalk on east side of Dutchess Ave was replaced and improved
in May. The sidewalk was made wider and curbing installed. Prior
to the replacement, there was no actual curbing and large sections
of the sidewalk were in terrible condition. This stretch of sidewalk
is a main conduit of foot traffic from parking spaces on Century
Blvd to main street.
Parking on South Center Street
Just down the street from the Community Center a parcel of land
that Dutchess County owns is being converted into additional parking.
This parcel has already been enhanced by the Village of Millerton
Highway Department to include direct access to the Hudson Valley
Rail Trail. One structure has been removed and the existing structure's
fate has yet to be determined. The timeline for completion is the
middle of June.
