HAZARD MITIGATION PLANS
A Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) is a detailed and proactive document created by government bodies at different levels (local, state, tribal, or territorial) to evaluate, identify, and decrease the risks related to both natural and human-made hazards. The main aim of an HMP is to mitigate the impact of disasters on individuals, assets, and the environment by planning and executing mitigation measures beforehand. These plans play a vital role in emergency management and disaster preparedness.
PLANS OF CONSERVATION & DEVELOPMENT
A Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD) is a strategic document typically created and implemented by local governments, such as cities or towns. It is designed to guide land use, development, and conservation efforts within their jurisdiction. The primary goal of a POCD is to balance the growth and development of a community with the preservation and enhancement of its natural and cultural resources. These plans serve as a blueprint for the future, outlining a vision for how a community wants to evolve over time.
