Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) identifies hazards to the community, assesses the City's vulnerability to those hazards and identifies specific actions that can be taken to reduce the risk.  It also identifies projects that could potentially reduce risks in the community from these natural and man-made hazards.  The City is required to adopt a LHMP every five (5) years under the Federal Disaster Mitigation Act.

The FINAL DRAFT Plan can be viewed and downloaded here.  (NOTE: Large File 31MB)
