Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

As we work to update our Local Hazard Mitigation plan, we are seeking input from our community. This draft is a minor update to previous versions with input from city staff and the public. Please read through the draft and let us know if we missed anything or if you have suggested changes/additions you think should be made by April 9. The draft has line numbers on the left side of page that can be referenced along with page number when making suggestions.

In 2022 the City of Riverside began an update to our Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) to help reduce or remove long-term risk and protect people and property from the effects of events like earthquake, fire, flood, terrorism, etc. Under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-390), State, Local and Tribal governments are required to develop a hazard mitigation plan to be eligible for certain federal disaster assistance

Hazard Mitigation

Hazard mitigation planning is the process governments use to identify risks and vulnerabilities associated with natural disasters and to develop long-term strategies for protecting people and property in future hazard events. The process results in a mitigation plan that offers a strategy for breaking the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. The planning process and the resultant plan bring together a framework for developing feasible and cost-effective mitigation projects.
