FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: New Richmond Ohio HMGP Acquisitions   [open pdf - 28KB]

Alternate Title: New Richmond, Ohio, Acquisitions HMGP Acquisitions

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. From the document: "New Richmond, a small, historic Ohio village about 20 miles upriver from Cincinnati on the Ohio River, is no stranger to flooding. New Richmond applied and became a participant in HMGP acquisitions projects based on January and June floods in 1996 and a March flood in 1997. Altogether, the projects acquired 43 structures, the lots they were located on and five bare lots for about $1.9 million. These repetitively damaged structures permanently were removed from harm's way and the village currently has a green space along the river that has become a village gathering point." 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]
