A landslide is a sudden mass movement of soil, artificial fill, and/or rock down a slope. Landslides include many different kinds of mass movements, including falls, topples, slides, spreads, flows, or a combination of one or more of these movements. Slopes of almost any angle, from slight hills to steep mountains, can fail in a sudden landslide.

This guide provides detailed, Colorado-specific information about how to assess a community’s risk of hazards and how to implement several land use planning tools and strategies for reducing a community’s risk. Hazard mitigation is defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as “any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to human life and property from a hazard event.” Mitigation creates safer communities by reducing loss of life and property damage.

Hazard mitigation planning is the process through which hazards that threaten communities. developed the Landslide Mitigation Action Plan to evaluate causes of landslides within this mile-long railway corridor (Figure 1), and form reasonable mitigation strategies to reduce impacts to the traveling public.
