The City of Santa Clarita will host a free Hazard Mitigation Public Workshop, to familiarize residents with the City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan, which helps City Planning officials to identify, evaluate, and assess ways to reduce the risk of local natural hazards. The workshop will be held on Thursday, September 10 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Santa Clarita A Room at the Santa Clarita Activities Center.
As part of the public process, every five years the City of Santa Clarita evaluates the City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan, which implements damage prevention efforts to lessen the impact of natural disasters, including earthquakes, wildfires, floods and more, on residents’ lives and property. As a guiding document, the plan also helps secure local eligibility for pre/post-disaster Federal mitigation funding.
In addition to informing local residents of Santa Clarita’s Hazard Mitigation Plan, the workshop will also offer attendees the opportunity to address concerns and gain an understanding of the local natural hazard risks. Resident feedback received at the workshop will allow City planning officials to update Santa Clarita’s mitigation goals to closely align with the concerns of the community.
