City of Barberton has partnered with local governmental agencies/organizations to develop a Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is required by 44 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 201.3 and the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. Local jurisdictions are required to develop a plan in order to be eligible for pre-disaster and post-disaster mitigation grant programs.

The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan increases public awareness of local hazards and helps the City communicate local needs to state and federal officials when funding becomes available, particularly following a disaster.

Residents of the Barberton area are invited to review the plan and provide feedback. Comments can be submitted through the following:

  • Electronic Survey (closed)
  • Completing a feedback form at the Public Library - 602 W. Park Ave., Barberton, Ohio 44203 – The weeks of February 2 – 13.
  • Public Service Department – Michael Vinay, 330-848-6717 or
  • Floodplain & Stormwater Department – Caroline Knorr, 330-861-7298 or
  • Attend the public forum on Wednesday, February 11th, 2015 at 6:00 PM at Barberton YMCA – 500 W Hopocan Ave, Active Adult Center
  • The Plan will be available for comment between February 2, 2015 and February 13, 2015.
