Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan UPDATE
The Port of Bandon in conjunction with Coos County, the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD), two Port Districts, one Hospital, one Drainage District, and seven cities are working on the multi-jurisdictional plan update.
The intent is to include natural hazards and all possible risks for the county, in an attempt to permanently reduce or alleviate the loss of life or property. Hazards include coastal erosion, drought, earthquake, flood, landslide, tsunami, wildfire, windstorm, winter storm, and volcanic ash. Mitigation actions usually include improving infrastructure such as bridges or critical facilities.
The planning and documentation of the project is ongoing, and should conclude with an updated plan in March of 2022.
