Contra Costa County Hazards Mitigation Plan Update Available for Public Review


Contra Costa County invites citizens to review and comment on the recently updated Contra Costa County Hazards Mitigation Plan (CCCHMP).

To review Volume 1 (click here) and Volume 2 (click here) of the CCCHMP.

Upon its approval by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the CCCHMP will serve as a coordinating document for the risk reduction efforts of 13 municipalities and 26 special purpose districts for the next five years. It includes an assessment of the county’s risks from naturally occurring events and includes a list of proposed initiatives designed to minimize future natural hazard-related damage. The plan will be reviewed and updated as required.

The original planning process started in 2007 and was completed and approved in 2011. During the planning process for the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan, there were several public meetings to obtain public comment and suggestions in the plan. Those meeting notes can be seen at:
