The Floodplain Management Plan is an overall strategy of programs, projects, and measures aimed at reducing the adverse impacts of flood hazards on the community. The FMP identifies and addresses the impacts caused by flood hazards and provides specific mitigation measures to help protect the properties and their occupants. Los Angeles City adopted its most recent FMP in 2015. The National Flood Insurance Program requires LA City to update its FMP every five years.

The City prepared an online survey in order to gauge the public perception of flood risks. Information about the survey can be found by visiting: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2019CLACFMP.
Development of the FMP was guided through the efforts of a Steering Committee. The Steering Committee was comprised of representatives from local government, non-profit groups, businesses, and members of the general public.
