The County of Mono, Community Development Department (CDD), is soliciting Requests for Proposals (RFPs) to update a multi-jurisdictional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) for the County of Mono and Town of Mammoth Lakes, which was last adopted in 2006. Both jurisdictions addressed by the plan see the LHMP as a critical tool to support local mitigation projects and activities.
The work is funded by the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)/California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES). All services and work must comply with the requirements of that Program and with applicable Federal regulations.
During a countywide comprehensive General Plan update that spanned several years and was completed in 2015, the LHMP was reviewed and a preliminary draft update was completed by an outside consultant and circulated internally. This draft was not submitted for approval due to concerns that the draft would not meet the requirements for approval by the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA); however the draft will provide an excellent framework to complete a comprehensive update. The final product will be a multi-jurisdictional Local Hazard Mitigation Plan approved by CalOES and FEMA.
Extensive initial public outreach and review of working documents will be conducted using the network of Mono County Regional Planning Advisory Committees (RPACs) and the Collaborative Planning Team (CPT). The RPACs provide for a community-based planning approach and the CPT ensures broad agency input and collaboration.
The main purpose of this solicitation is to identify and contract with a qualified consultant to perform the scope of work with a completion date of May 2018.
Questions about this RFP are due by 5 pm on Monday, April 3. Please post your questions to this website.
