Cover photo for the document: Shelby, Ohio - The Economic Upside to Mitigation, Case Study

This Case Study shows how hazard mitigation helped the City of Shelby, Ohio. It shows that land purchased through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) grants are deed restricted into perpetuity, which means no structure that impedes the flow of water can be built on the site. The purchased land will be kept as green space and maintained by the local jurisdiction.
