Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
City of Riverside is conducting 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
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.

In addition to the
community hazard survey which was conducted January 11, 2016
