Our current Local Mitigation Strategy document will be expiring in August 2015. Several Working Group meetings will be scheduled in the very near future and our goal is to be completed with all updates no later than February 1, 2015. We will need to review changes and update the project list.

LMS 2015 Update
Indian River County is in the process of updating our 2010 Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS), a plan identifying projects and activities aimed at reducing the impacts of natural disasters such as hurricane, tornadoes, and flooding.

The 2010 plan was reviewed and approved the Federal Emergency Management Agency for compliance with the federal hazard mitigation planning standards and determined that the plan is compliant with all federal standards. The Indian River County Board of County Commissioners, on July 13, 2010, adopted the plan by Resolution No. 2010-059.The plan was formally adopted by each municipality.

Adoption of the Local Mitigation Strategy is an eligibility requirement for various hazard mitigation grant programs. Our LMS meetings are open to the public and we encourage everyone interested to attend and participate in our process. Our efforts are for the benefit of our citizens; we want you, our community residents and visitors, to help provide us the direction that provides you the most benefit from our activities.
