2011 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan: The 2011 City of Moreno Valley Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) is designed to reduce or eliminate the long-term natural or man-made hazard risks to human life and property.

The City of Moreno Valley encourages its citizens to do mitigation planning at every level - at home, in the workplace and in their communities. The LHMP was prepared pursuant to requirements of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act as well as the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. Key components of the plan include hazard identification, asset inventory, risk analysis, loss estimation, and a mitigation strategy to reduce the effects of the hazards we have. The public is encouraged to provide input for periodic updates to the plan.
