The New Hampshire Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (NH HSEM) has a goal for all communities within the State of New Hampshire to establish local hazard mitigation plans as a means to reduce future losses from natural or manmade hazard events before they occur. The NH HSEM has provided funding to the City of Lebanon, to update their local Hazard Mitigation Plan. UVLSRPC wrote the first Lebanon Hazard Mitigation Plan that was approved in 2011. The Lebanon Hazard Mitigation Plan Update 2016 serves as a strategic planning tool for use by the City of Lebanon in its efforts to reduce future losses from natural and/or man-made hazard events before they occur.
The Lebanon Hazard Mitigation Committee updated the Lebanon Hazard Mitigation Plan with the assistance and professional services of the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission (UVLSRPC). After a public meeting held in the Lebanon City Offices, the Lebanon City Council adopted the updated plan on DATE as shown in Appendix E.
The Lebanon Hazard Mitigation Plan Update 2016 is a planning tool for use by the City of Lebanon in its efforts to reduce future losses from natural and/or human-made hazards. This plan does not constitute a section of the City Master Plan, nor is it adopted as part of the Zoning Ordinance.
