Chelan County Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Chelan County, WA

Perteet supported the update of the Chelan County Hazard Mitigation Plan. The planning process included a steering committee, planning partnership, and public outreach. We facilitated the monthly steering committee meetings and helped the planning partners in the development of their plan annexes. We also prepared press releases, managed an online survey, hosted three open houses, and presented to the Board of County Commissioners. The plan received final approval in December 2019. This was a multi-jurisdictional planning effort that covered the County, five cities, and nine special purpose districts within the Chelan County operational area. The plan update was facilitated through a 10-member steering committee and followed the 10-step planning process prescribed under FEMA’s Community Rating System. The plan fully assessed eight hazards of concern, including robust Hazus modeling for the dam failure, earthquake, and flood hazards. The plan identifies and prioritizes 249 actions to be implemented over a five-year performance period by the 15 planning partners. The project was completed on time and on budget and was approved by FEMA Region X on December 30, 2019.
