Natural Hazard Plan/Schedule

Between now and mid-2017, the City of Medford will be working to update its 2010 Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan.  The planning process provides many opportunities for input from subject matter experts, stakeholders, and the public at large.  A local steering committee and a staff person from the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development will guide the collaborative planning process.

This page will include key elements of the plan as they are developed, as well as notices of related meetings.  The public is invited to submit questions and input by email at or by mail at the address below.

The 2010 plan is the basis for the current update.  Updates to the plan reflect new partnerships, new and updated data, reconsidered strategies, and other changes.
