Pima County and its incorporated city, towns, and one tribe located within the county have joined forces to review and update the existing 2017 Pima County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The goal of mitigation planning is to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to life and property from natural hazard events. Mitigation is not how we respond to emergencies like floods and wildfires, but rather how we as a community prevents the impact of such things in the first place.
The mitigation planning process involves identifying and profiling the natural hazards most likely to occur in a community, assessing the vulnerability to these hazards, and establishing goals, actions, and projects that mitigate the associated risks. The update of this mitigation plan will also ensure continued eligibility for both emergency and non-emergency, federal, and state hazard mitigation grants.
The multi-jurisdictional planning team has prepared a draft of the 2022 Pima County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The public has the opportunity to comment on the final draft which can be viewed on the Pima County's Mitigation Plan web page. Comments may be submitted through the electronic form located on the right-hand side of that page.
