Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The City of Riverside conducted a 5 year 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.

LHMP Update
The LHMP was submitted in 2017, updated after review by Cal OES and FEMA in 2018. The plan was adopted by City Council on February 5, 2019.
