The LHMP must be approved by <br />the City Council and the Federal Emergency Management Agency <br />(FEMA) in order to receive federal mitigation project grant funding. <br />The consequence for not having a mitigation plan in place would <br />result in the City being ineligible for mitigation project funds both <br />before and after a disaster. <br /> <br />Earlier this year, FEMA approved the City of Pleasanton's LHMP. <br />The next step in this process is to obtain Council approval. With <br />Council approval, Pleasanton will be in compliance with DMA 2000 <br />and will be able to qualify for mitigation project grant funds. <br /> <br />Honorable Mayor and Members of the City Council: <br /> <br />BACKGROUND <br />According to the Stafford Act (44 CFR 206:401), hazard mitigation is "any action taken to <br />reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from natural hazards." <br /> <br />SR 06:026 <br />
