Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Routt County Hazard Mitigation Plan Update Final - Dec 17 2020 Opens in new windowDuring 2019 and early 2020, a coalition of Routt County, cities, towns, and special districts implemented a planning process to prepare for and lessen the impacts of natural hazards by updating the Routt County Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP).  This partnership pooled resources to create a uniform hazard mitigation strategy that can be consistently applied throughout the Routt County planning area and will ensure eligibility for specified grant funds. 

The HMP describes the plan’s purpose, the planning process, community engagement efforts, the hazard risk assessment and findings, local mitigation actions identified, and the plan’s maintenance strategy for the 5-year period that will be covered by the plan. 

The HMP was adopted by Routt County in December 2020 and is reviewed annually. The plan is subject to revision every five years.

Routt County and its partners are currently in the process of reviewing the plan for 2022, and the report will be posted once complete.
