The Licking County Planning Department, in cooperation with the City of Newark, has previously updated the 2003 Countywide All Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (CANHMP) to meet Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) requirements as of 2007. The result will qualify Licking County unincorporated and the city of Newark for additional future mitigation fund requests designed to reduce flood risks for Licking County residents and businesses, as well as infrastructure such as roads, bridges, etc.
