Land Use Guidance – continued

Tsunami mapCOG is honored to have produced the Tsunami Land Use Guide for Oregon Coastal Communities.  The first of its kind handbook documents an array of best practices and guidance tools for tsunami resilience in accordance to the Statewide Planning Goals and local government comprehensive plans along the Oregon Coast.

Our chief challenge was preparing a best comprehensive guide based on practices while recognizing local risk sensitivities and the evolving local government practices.  The work is a sobering reminder of the challenges presented by a Cascadian Subduction Zone earthquake and related tsunamis and the critical roles local government policy plays in preparing for the big one.

Tsunami - JapanWe are now prepared to help local governments, along the entire Pacific Coast, plan for future tsunamis using a complete set of tools.
