CITY COUNCIL OF THE

Resolution 11-18

 

Introduced by: Mayor Buckley

 

 

A RESOLUTION concerning

 

Amended 2018 City of Annapolis Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan

 

FOR                     the purpose of adopting as amended the 2018 City of Annapolis Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan, as required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, to maintain eligibility for disaster funding for large scale emergencies and disasters, as well as mitigation grant funding.

 

WHEREAS,                      this Resolution amends R-2-18 as adopted on January 8, 2018, and incorporates revisions required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency; these revisions include more information on Annapolis participation in the National Flood Insurance Program, a discussion of ongoing mitigation actions, and other technical requirements; FEMA affirmed that it will approve this Plan after it has been adopted by the Annapolis City Council; and

 

WHEREAS,                     to support better mitigation planning in order to prepare for and minimize the impacts of disasters in the future, Congress enacted the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000); and

 

WHEREAS,                     in 2002, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) issued regulations to implement requirements for mitigation planning by states and communities.  FEMA is the lead agency supporting implementation of the DMA 2000 requirements and makes funds available to support efforts to meet these requirements; and

 

WHEREAS,                     to be eligible for FEMA funds, state and local entities were required to prepare DMA 2000 Hazard Mitigation Plans for natural hazards; the City of Annapolis met that requirement in 2005; and

 

WHEREAS,                     the purpose of the plan is to assess the communities’ vulnerabilities to natural hazards and prepare a long-term strategy to address these hazards and prevent future damage and loss of life of Annapolis city residents; and

 

WHEREAS,                     the City of Annapolis Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan was updated in 2009 and 2013, which updates were the outcome of participation from state, county and municipal officials, residents, business owners, and other agencies.

 

 

NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE ANNAPOLIS CITY COUNCIL that the City of Annapolis Amended 2018 Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan, is a part hereof, and incorporated herein, <https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aL0YUh2gsBQlKhAOrgl2mAeWwzxT5gy-/view?usp=sharing> and is hereby approved.
