Plan Required to Receive Federal Dollars
Sedona, AZ (August 18, 2011) – planning team comprised of representatives from the Cities, Towns, and Tribes of Yavapai County has been meeting regularly to participate in a hazard mitigation planning process. The purpose of this process is to develop an updated Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan for the City of Sedona, according to The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2K).
The DMA2K requires all local, county, tribal and state governments to have a FEMA approved Hazard Mitigation Plan in order to be eligible for certain federal disaster mitigation funds. The Plan focuses on the area’s most threatening hazards and provides a strategy to reduce or eliminate the risk from those hazards to the citizens and property of the City of Sedona.
The first draft of the City of Sedona Hazard Mitigation Plan has been completed and is ready for public viewing and comment. The Plan may be viewed at: ftp://ftp.sedonaaz.gov/Public Works/
until the final viewing/comment date of September 9, 2011.
For more information regarding the hazard mitigation planning process/plan, please contact David Peck with the City of Sedona Public Works Department at 102 Roadrunner Drive, Sedona, AZ 86336, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
