[ARCHIVED] Archuleta County Hazard Mitigation Plan Draft For Public Review

Pages from Archuleta HMP Public Review Draft 2_2_23

Would you like to learn more about what Archuleta County is doing to minimize the impacts of floods, dam failures, wildfires, hazardous materials incidents, and other hazards?  

A draft of the County’s updated Hazard Mitigation Plan is being made available for public review and comment. The plan assesses risks posed by natural and man-made hazards, identifies ways to reduce those risks, and allows the County to remain eligible for mitigation funding from FEMA. 

A Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee (HMPC) that includes representatives from various county departments, Pagosa Springs, Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District and the Pagosa Fire Protection District updated the plan over the past year with assistance from a consultant.  The plan identifies hazard mitigation goals and a variety of mitigation projects with the intent of reducing losses from hazard events before they occur again. 

The planning committee is now soliciting public comment on the plan before it is finalized and submitted for FEMA review and approval.  

If you have any questions, you may contact the Office of Emergency Management at 970-264-8339

The public comments will be accepted through February 17, 2023.
