Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan
Alpine County Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Over the last 9 months, Alpine County, in partnership with Alpine County School District, Bear Valley Water District, Kirkwood Meadows Public Utility District, Markleeville Public Utility District, Markleeville Water Company, South Tahoe Public Utility District, Lake Alpine Water Company and the Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California, has participated in a planning effort to update the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan for Alpine County.  This updated plan is being developed to facilitate compliance with federal requirements and to provide a tool for local government, industry, and private venues to help reduce the impact of natural hazards.  The plan examines the potential threats that Alpine County residents may face.  It also addresses mitigation efforts that can take place in both public and private venues that can help reduce the impacts of these threats.

One of the major components of the plan development is having a good cross-section of community input and participation.  Therefore, the public is invited to participate in a public survey.  The link to the public survey can be found below:          

Additionally, representatives will be on-site at the 50+ Club Potluck on Thursday, March 10th, 2016 at 5 pm to discuss the plan.  The 50+ Club Potluck will be held at The Learning Center at 100 Foothill Road. Click here to view the flyer.
