Gulf County Local Mitigation Strategy


Gulf County Florida is threatened by a number of different types of natural, technological, and societal or man-made hazards. These hazards endanger the health and safety of the population of the county, jeopardize its economic vitality, and imperil the quality of its environment. Because of the importance of avoiding or minimizing the vulnerability to these hazards, the public and private sector interests of Port St. Joe, Wewahitchka, and Gulf County have joined together to create a task force to undertake a comprehensive planning process that has culminated in the publication of the: “Gulf County Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS).”

This task force, entitled the Gulf County LMS Task Force, will continue to host a current copy of the Gulf County LMS on this web site until its next revision in 2015.
