Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP)
Sutter County is leading a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) Update to their 2007
plan. The purpose of this LHMP Update is to assess risk to natural hazards,
implement actions to reduce future losses, and maintain eligibility for federal
mitigation funds in accordance with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. Partners
with the County in this planning effort include the Cities of Live Oak and Yuba City
and several special districts. Another benefit of this Mitigation Planning Update process
is to enhance the floodplain management practice of the cities and county which can help
reduce the costs of flood insurance to residents of Sutter County, Yuba City and Live Oak
through participation in FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating
For more information on this process, visit the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan link below.
