Contra Costa County is in the process of updating its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Plan serves as a coordinating document to help more than three dozen local agencies and special purpose districts reduce their risks from a wide range of potential events. Those can include anything from earthquakes and floods to wildfires and extreme heat.
The update process kicked off in November of 2016, and a multi-agency steering committee helped guide the development of a Draft Plan update. We thank those of you who participated, and who submitted comments for consideration.
The current plan was developed in 2011 and approved in April of 2012, and it is expected that the update process will conclude before the end of this year.
