FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: City Uses HMGP to Restore Park   [open pdf - 37KB]

This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. The Best Practices Portfolio is a collection of true stories about people and communities who have experienced disasters, and what mitigation they used to survive, rebuild, and prepare for disasters. This Best Practice Story describes that, "Thanks to Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funds, the site of an old factory in a once neglected part of the small Michigan city of Montague was razed with intentions to create a park in its place. The secret to success in this story is not necessarily a single person or group, but the cooperation of numerous people, groups and agencies, along with the HMGP. Without every one of these players, the project would not have been as successful as it was. The City of Montague and FEMA Region V worked closely throughout the project and saw it to completion." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
