Butte County, CA -- Butte County is partnering with the incorporated communities and several special districts to update their 2014 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). Floods, drought, wildfires, and severe weather are just a few of the hazards of concern to our local communities. While natural hazards such as these cannot be prevented, an LHMP forms the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses by breaking the repeated cycle of disaster damage and reconstruction. Communities with a FEMA-approved LHMP are eligible to apply for both pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding.

The people most aware of potential hazards are the people that live and work in the affected communities. In addition to plan participation by local, state and federal agencies, the community is seeking members of the public to participate in our LHMP Update process.

An initial public information meeting will be held in the following location:
February 5, 2019
LHMP Public Information Meeting at 6:00pm
Board of Supervisors Chambers25 County Center Dr., Suite 205, Oroville, CA
