This Storm Smart Cities Guide examines how communities can integrate green infrastructure into their Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. It provides a case study of green infrastructure integration efforts in the City of Huntington, West Virginia and the West Virginia Region 2 Planning and Development Area.
The purpose of this guide is to:
- Provide an overview of Local Hazard Mitigation Planning;
- Capture an approach used to establish a planning team;
- Identify lessons learned and important considerations for other communities interested in pursuing this approach; and
- Provides a crosswalk between the steps in Local Hazard Mitigation Planning, considerations for integrating green infrastructure, and examples from the Huntington, West Virginia Case Study.
