Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan - Objective 4.4.2 and Policy through

Background Discussion

The LMS is a multi-jurisdictional plan which identifies hazards, vulnerable areas, and possible actions to mitigate the impacts of those risks to the citizens of Manatee County.

Manatee County and each of its municipalities must have an effective plan to qualify for pre-disaster and post-disaster funding from the federal government.

In 1999, all of the cities along with Manatee County adopted the first LMS with updates in 2004 and 2009.  It is now in the third, 5-year update.

Per 44 CFR §201.6(d)(3), “A local jurisdiction must review and revise its plan to reflect changes in development, progress in local mitigation efforts, and changes in priorities, and resubmit it for approval within five (5) years in order to continue to be eligible for mitigation project grant funding.”

The major updates at this time include the following:

  • Section IV Profile of Manatee County – Updated to include new census information and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) effective date
  • Section V Hazard Analysis – Updated to include extent and past 5 year events
  • Section VIII LMS Mitigation Initiatives – Updated by each jurisdiction
  • Section X Map – Updated to reflect 2009 Sea, Land, and Overland Surges from Hurricane (SLOSH) Zones and FIRMs, effective March 17, 2014
  • Appendix B Historical Events – Updated to include historical events for past 5 years
  • Appendix C Repetitive Loss Properties – Updated by each jurisdiction
  • Appendix D Risk Analysis – Updated to include new census information
