Project Purpose

 The South Platte Natural Resources District (NRD), in collaboration with JEO Consulting Group, is in the process of updating their 2017 Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). A hazard mitigation plan is a community-guided document that identifies vulnerability to hazards and mitigation projects to reduce or eliminate this vulnerability. FEMA requires that an HMP be updated and approved within a five-year period. Having an approved and updated plan enables your community to be stronger and more resilient by:

  1. Reducing your community’s risk and potential impacts from hazards and disasters such as: tornadoes, flooding, drought, hail, severe winter storms, agricultural plant and animal diseases, wildfire, chemical spills, etc.;
  2. Gaining eligibility for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grants, and
  3. Building partnerships within your community and across counties.

 

The planning area for the South Platte NRD HMP includes the counties of Cheyenne, Deuel, and Kimball. Members of the community, schools, NRD, fire districts, irrigation districts, and other jurisdictions within the three counties are invited to participate in this process by attending meetings and providing information for the plan.


This hazard mitigation plan update is funded by a FEMA planning grant. The cost is shared 75% through federal funding and 25% through a local match.
