Natural hazards have the potential to cause property damage, loss of life, economic hardship, and threats to public health and safety. The Village of Castleton is now part of the Rensselaer County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.
Hazard mitigation plans are developed before a disaster strikes. The plans identify community policies, actions, and tools for long-term implementation to reduce risk and potential for future losses. For more information, see pdf County Hazard Mitigation Plan (193 KB) .
