The Luzerne County Planning and Zoning Department, in cooperation with the Luzerne County Emergency Management Agency, is updating the Luzerne County Hazard Mitigation Plan.  This Plan serves as a blueprint for saving lives and reducing property damage from the impacts of natural and man-made hazards.  This Plan is also necessary for Luzerne County and its municipalities to be eligible to receive certain types of state and federal disaster and mitigation funding after a disaster occurs.  Please go to go the project website to review the draft version of the Hazard Mitigation Plan and to participate in the process by providing your comments​.
