Charlotte-Mecklenburg Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan
In 2005, the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and incorporated cities and towns of Matthews, Mint Hill, Pineville, Huntersville, Davidson, Cornelius, participated in a planning effort that resulted in the development of a hazard mitigation plan covering each participating jurisdictions. This Plan received Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approval in 2005. These Plans are designed to meet the federal regulations set forth by the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, which requires all local, county, tribal, and state governments to develop a multi-hazard mitigation plan for their respective jurisdictions in order to be eligible to receive certain hazard mitigation and public assistance funds.
In October 2010, Charlotte Mecklenburg Emergency Management Office (CMEMO) updated the original 2005 plan to incorporate changes, requirements, and modifications to the hazard mitigation act of 2000. This 2010 plan is located under the Hazard Mitigation Plans tab.
In the summer of 2014, the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County and the 6 Towns began the update process for the required 5 year update. The final draft plan was approved by the State of North Carolina in June of 2015 and is currently under review by the Federal government. Once FEMA has approved the plan, it will go to all 8 Councils/Commission for adoption.
