Action Requested

Public Works - Approve Resolution No. 1992 to adopt the Yavapai County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan 2018. (All Districts)

Brief Explanation of Need
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires state, tribal, and local governments to develop and adopt hazard mitigation plans as a condition for receiving certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance, including funding for mitigation projects. Jurisdictions must update their hazard mitigation plans and re-submit them for FEMA approval every five years to maintain eligibility, and this 2018 update is being brought to the Board for consideration to adopt via Resolution.

Yavapai County Emergency Management has received preliminary approval from FEMA regarding the plan update, and has been working with the participating jurisdictions within Yavapai County for much of 2018 to encourage their formal adoption of the Plan update.  While there are still a handful of outstanding approvals from participating jurisdictions, Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs (DEMA) advised Yavapai County Emergency Management to seek the formal approval of the Board of Supervisors at this time, so that the County may continue its efforts to obtain and utilize any grant funding opportunities that are coming up in the near term.

The Yavapai County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan 2018 can be found under the following link for viewing:

We respectfully request the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors approve Resolution No. 1992 to adopt the Yavapai County Multi-Jurisdictional Mitigation Plan 2018.
