Hazard Mitigation

Hazard mitigation is sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and their property from hazards.  Mitigation focuses on breaking the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. Mitigation efforts provide value to communities by creating safer living environments and reducing loss of life and property. 

Unlike other planning processes, mitigation planning is much more focused on the built environment.  Putting together a Mitigation Plan requires knowledge of the development cycle and the supporting documents including the zoning ordinance, general plan, capital improvement plan, and redevelopment plans.
