We want to hear from you! The Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (NHMP) identifies hazards that threaten our communities, evaluates our vulnerability to those threats, and outlines strategies to reduce or eliminate the risk posed by those threats. The Plan must be updated every five years. For the 2020-2025 Plan, Clatsop County has come together with five jurisdictions and ten special districts to work toward building consensus about the priorities for the next five years.
The draft Plan is available for public review and comment from January 3, 2021 through January 15, 2021 at co.clatsop.or.us
Citizen participation is a critically important piece of the update, because the NHMP has greatest value to the whole community when it relies on input from the whole community. So, please take some time to share your perspective on how natural disasters impact Clatsop County, and on the draft Plan. Please pass the Plan along to others so they can take the opportunity to do the same. We appreciate your time and interest in the Clatsop County NHMP.
