The purpose of the Tillamook County Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan is to assist the County, its cities, and the Port of Tillamook Bay in reducing risk from natural hazards. This Draft Risk Assessment, one part of the Plan, identifies and assesses the natural hazards facing the County, its cities, and the Port of Tillamook Bay and identifies and assesses their potential vulnerabilities to those hazards. The public is invited to review and comment on the Draft Risk Assessment between Wednesday, March 1, 2017 and Friday, March 17, 2017.

What is mitigation?

Mitigation is the effort we take to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. By taking action now - before the next disaster - we reduce the human and financial consequences later. Examples of mitigation actions include restoring flood plains to prevent flooding, retrofitting public infrastructure to withstand earthquakes, and locating or relocating development away from hazard areas.


Why do we need a Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan?

Mitigation planning creates safer communities, saves money, and enables individuals to recover more rapidly from disasters. With a federally approved plan in place, Tillamook County and its cities are also eligible to apply for grant funding for hazard mitigation projects. These funds can assist with mitigation actions identified during the hazard mitigation planning process.


What is the Local Governments’ role in updating the plan?

The Tillamook County Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan addresses hazard mitigation in both the incorporated and rural areas of Tillamook County. The plan is updated every five years to reflect changes in development, progress in local mitigation efforts, and changes in priorities. We are currently in the process of a major update that includes the Tillamook County and the cities of Manzanita, Nehalem, Rockaway Beach, Garibaldi, Bay City, and Tillamook, as well as the unincorporated communities of Oceanside-Netarts, Pacific City, and Neskowin.
