On December 2, 2011, the City of Boise adopted the Ada County Emergency Management Agency’s All Hazards Mitigation Plan. That plan was updated in 2015 and again in 2017. The City was a partner in preparation of the plan. In the Hazard Mitigation Action Plan Matrix contained in Table 2-10, Volume 2 of the Plan (Boise Annex), the City of Boise identified 16 different Initiatives it would pursue related to mitigation of Seismic, Flood and Wildfire hazards in the City. Five of those initiatives concerned flood hazard mitigation efforts.
As required by the City’s participation in the National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System annual recertification process, Boise is reporting on our progress with each of the flood-related initiatives identified in the plan under Activity 510. This report will also address any flood events which occurred in the past year, any changes in our capabilities that could impact implementation, and consider recommendations for changes/enhancement.
