A planning team of representatives from the Town of Chino Valley and surrounding Yavapai County communities are participating in a county-wide hazard mitigation planning update process. The purpose of this process is to update the current Yavapai County Hazard Mitigation Plan, previously approved by FEMA on 9/12/2011. Local, county, tribal and state governments are required to have a FEMA approved hazard mitigation plan in order to be eligible for federal hazard mitigation grant funds and in some cases, other types of disaster funding. The Plan focuses on the communities’ most threatening hazards and establishes a strategy to reduce the impact from those hazards to protect the people and property of Yavapai County and to create more resilient communities. The Planning Team anticipates having a plan draft in early 2017, at which time public access to the updated plan draft will be provided, with the opportunity to again comment. You may view the 2011 Yavapai County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan by clicking the link below.
Town of Chino Valley citizens are encouraged to provide comment or suggestions on the draft plan. Comments can be submitted by going to the link below.
