Oregon Resilience Planning

The Oregon Coastal Management Program (OCMP) has led an effort, in coordination with Oregon’s Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGMI), to prepare coastal communities for a local Cascadia Subduction Zone tsunami. Using CZMA funding, Oregon DOGMI produced inundation and evacuation maps, and the OCMP developed a land use planning guide, including example policies and codes, that communities can use to develop comprehensive plans that adopt development codes, plan for long-term relocation strategies, and methods to prioritize evacuation infrastructure improvements.
