Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) - a pre-disaster mitigation planning initiative intended to reduce the disrupting effects of natural disasters on the economic and social fabric of the community. The LMS is intended to represent the following jurisdictions:
City of Stuart;
Town of Jupiter Island;
Town of Sewall's Point; and
Town of Ocean Breeze Park.
The purpose of the Martin County LMS is to develop a unified approach among County and municipal governments for dealing with identified hazards and hazard management problems in Martin County. This strategy serves as a tool to direct the County and municipal governments in their ongoing efforts to reduce their vulnerabilities to impacts produced by natural, technological, and societal hazards to which southeast Florida is exposed. This strategy also helps establish funding priorities for proposed mitigation projects and for such disaster assistance funds that may be made available.
