The City executes a number of flood mitigation projects in order to stay abreast with the City’s adoption of the Miami-Dade County Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) as its Floodplain Management Plan. The annual progress report is now available online.
Miami-Dade County, with input from all participating municipalities in the County, including Aventura, prepared a Multi-Hazard Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS). The original LMS was formally adopted by the City Commission through Resolution No. 2015-40 in 2015. The five-year update of the strategy was issued by the County in 2020 and adopted by the City through Resolution No. 2020-64 in September of 2020.
Mitigation is a way to lessen the impact of a disaster on a community through preparedness, structural hardening and infrastructure projects. The progress report is posted online and can be viewed by visiting Miami-Dade County’s Emergency Management webpage at: https://www.miamidade.gov/global/emergency/projects-that-protect.page.
