Title: City addendum City of Reedsport
Author: Oregon Partnership for Disaster Resilience; Reedsport (Or.)
Abstract: The city of Reedsport developed this addendum to the Douglas County multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan in an effort to increase the community’s resilience to natural hazards. The addendum focuses on the natural hazards that could affect Reedsport, Oregon, which include: coastal erosion, drought, earthquake, flood, landslide, tsunami, wildfire, windstorm, and winter storm. It is impossible to predict exactly when disasters may occur, or the extent to which they will affect the city. However, with careful planning and collaboration among public agencies, private sector organizations, and citizens within the community, it is possible to minimize the losses that can result from natural hazards. The addendum provides a set of actions that aim to reduce the risks posed by natural hazards through education and outreach programs, the development of partnerships, and the implementation of preventative activities such as land use programs. The actions described in the addendum are intended to be implemented through existing plans and programs within the city when possible. This addendum is comprised of the following sections: 1) Addendum Development Process; 2) Community Profile; 3) Risk Assessment; 4) Action Items; and 5) Plan Implementation and Maintenance.
