In the fall of 2013 Carlton County received a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to prepare an update of its multi-jurisdictional MHMP. Eleven jurisdictions are part of the plan, including Carlton County and the cities of Barnum, Carlton, Cloquet, Cromwell, Kettle River, Moose Lake, Scanlon, Thomson, Wrenshall, and Wright.

Public input is a required step in the MHMP planning process. Community members and staff from the County and participating cities are strongly encouraged to attend the scheduled public meetings. The meetings will provide local residents, businesses, agencies and organizations an opportunity to learn about the draft plan, ask questions and provide feedback on mitigation strategies and recommended actions for implementation.

A draft of the Carlton County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan content is available for public review at www.arrowheadplanning.org/carltonmhmp. Comments or questions on the plan or public meetings may be directed to Brian Belich at (218) 384-3236 or brian.belich@co.carlton.mn.us.
