Document Description
The Disaster Mitigation Act (OMA) of 2000 (Public Law 106-390) requires local governments to develop and adopt pre-disaster mitigation plans to minimize property damage and the risk to public health and safety that might otherwise result from the effects of a natural or man-made disaster. A FEMA-approved plan makes the County and Town eligible for FEMA Pre-disaster Mitigation and Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs. Mono County and Town of Mammoth Lakes Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (MJHMP) has been prepared and adopted by the Mammoth Lakes Town Council on May 15, 2019, and the Mono County Board of Supervisors on May 21, 2019. The planning process included a Planning Team and community outreach, and the plan identifies, profiles, assesses risk, and provides mitigation for the following hazards: avalanche, dam failure, disease/pest management, drought, earthquake and seismic hazards, extreme heat, flood, landslides, hazardous materials, severe wind, severe winter weather and snow, volcanoes and wildlife collisions. Climate change is expected to exacerbate existing hazards in the County and Town and is therefore considered throughout all applicable hazard profiles. The approving Resolution incorporates the MJHMP into the Mono County and Town of Mammoth Lakes General Plan Safety Elements by reference.
