In 2005, the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and incorporated cities and towns of Cornelius, Davidson, Matthews, Mint Hill and Pineville, participated in a planning effort that resulted in the development of a hazard mitigation plan covering each participating jurisdiction. This plan received Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approval in 2005. These plans are designed to meet the federal regulations set forth by the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, which requires all local, county, tribal, and state governments to develop a multi-hazard mitigation plan for their respective jurisdictions in order to be eligible to receive certain hazard mitigation and public assistance funds.
In October 2010, Charlotte Mecklenburg Emergency Management Office (CMEMO) updated the original 2005 plan to incorporate changes, requirements, and modifications to the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. In the summers of 2014 and 2019, the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County and the six other towns began the update process for the required five-year update.
