Local Ordinance Toolkit for Disaster Resilience

This ordinance package is intended to establish an inventory of tools and best practices that can be implemented by local governments before and after an earthquake to build resilience.
The ordinances below are a small representative sample of model ordinances we expect to make available. We will continue to post ordinances as we collect them and will be developing fact sheets and guidance for implementation and prioritization to accompany ordinances, as well as case studies of cities who have successfully adopted them in our upcoming Local Policy Implementation Assistance project.
