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 CalEMA and FEMA.
The current LHMP can be found at the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) Resilience Program webpage.
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.
The draft LHMP is now available for public comment. The public comment period shall be open from February 8, 2016 through February 26, 2016.
Please email all comments to Norman Wong at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject heading “LHMP public comment” by the deadline. Comments received after the deadline will not be accepted.
