Coastal Bend Mitigation Action Plan

RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider adopting a resolution approving the Coastal Bend Mitigation Action Plan. 
BACKGROUND
The intent of mitigation planning is to maintain a process that leads to hazard mitigation actions. Mitigation plans identify the natural hazards that impact communities, identify actions to reduce losses from those hazards, and establish a coordinated process to implement the plan. (44 CFR§201.1(b)) Representatives from communities in a seven-county area located in South Texas have coordinated efforts to develop the Coastal Bend Mitigation Action Plan. Efforts include research on how to reduce losses from future disasters, primarily hurricanes and their effects, including extreme winds, coastal surge, spawned tornadoes, heavy rain, and flooding in the South Texas area. The mitigation strategy in this plan is a continuation of ongoing efforts in communities, both large and small. As progress is made towards implementing the strategy, and achieving goals and objectives, it is also the intent to educate and encourage residents regarding mitigation activities to reduce losses before a serious event occurs.

DISCUSSION
A full copy of the plan is located in the Emergency Management Coordinators Office on the fifth floor of the Nueces County Courthouse.
