Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

Hazard mitigation is any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from hazards. A hazard mitigation plan identifies the hazards a community or region faces, assesses their vulnerability to the hazards and identifies specific actions that can be taken to reduce the risk from the hazards. The Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000) outlines a process which cities, counties, and special districts can follow to develop a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). Development of this plan is a requirement for certain benefits from CalOES and FEMA. 

Plan Goal

The goal of the District’s Local Hazard Mitigation Plan is to maintain and enhance a disaster-resistant District by reducing the potential for loss of life, property damage, and environmental degradation from natural disasters, while supporting economic recovery from those disasters. This goal is unchanged from the previous plan and continues to be the goal of the District in designing its mitigation program. 

Plan Update 2021-2022

The District is excited to be updating the local hazard mitigation plan with a target to complete by end of 2022. Please check back to this webpage periodically for announcements and new developments as the update progresses.  If you have any questions or comments on the update or update process, please contact Norman Wong at [email protected] with subject heading “LHMP question."
