2017 Multi-Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan

Study Area




(click on image for larger version)


The 26 localities of the Richmond and Crater regions are working together to update the Richmond-Crater Multi-Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan to identify vulnerabilities associated with natural disasters and develop actions to reduce or eliminate long-term risks.

Federal law allows local governments to elect to develop their own mitigation plan or participate in a multi-jurisdictional mitigation plan. Multi-jurisdictional planning is most effective when jurisdictions face the same threats or hazards, operate under similar authorities, have similar needs and capabilities, and have successfully partnered in the past. Since 2003, the Commonwealth of Virginia has encouraged its 21 planning districts to lead the development of regional hazard mitigation plans.

The coordination, development, and drafting of the 2017 plan update is led by staff from the Richmond Regional Planning District Commission and Crater Planning District Commission, with contracted assistance from Dewberry Consulting. The effort is guided by the Hazard Mitigation Technical Advisory Committee (HMTAC) consisting of emergency management staff from each of the 26 localities (appointed by each locality’s chief administrative official).
