The Nantucket Town Manager’s office tasked us to identify gaps between the 2019 Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) and existing town plans, policies, and procedures. We found that clear and consistent application of the HMP is difficult because it affects a wide array of town departments with a diversity of overlapping functions and responsibilities that are not always clearly demarcated and no single department has the authority to implement its recommendations. We recommend the town update its plans and policies for better integration with the HMP, hire a floodplain manager and one or more town engineer(s), and consider expanding the Sustainability Working Group to involve more departments, such as the Department of Public Works.
