[ARCHIVED] Placentia Invites Comments on Hazard Mitigation Plan

all american city and seal

The City is developing a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). Earthquakes, floods, fires, and severe weather are just a few hazards to the Placentia community. While hazards such as these cannot be prevented, a Hazard Mitigation Plan forms the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses by breaking the repeated cycle of disaster damage and reconstruction. Additionally, only communities with a FEMA-approved LHMP can apply for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding. The process began in March 2023 by establishing a planning committee comprised of City departments and other key stakeholders. The LHMP is scheduled to be finalized and submitted to Cal OES and FEMA in November 2023.

Public Review Draft
The Public Review Draft of the LHMP is available online here. Hard copies of the Plan are available at City Hall in the City Clerk's Office 401 E. Chapman Avenue.

Open Public and Planning Committee Meetings
Final public and planning committee meetings to review and provide comments on the Public Review Draft LHMP are scheduled as follows:

Public Meeting
November 1, 2023 (Wednesday) 5:30–7:00 pm; City Hall Front Community Room

Planning Committee Meeting
November 2, 2023 (Thursday) 9:00 – 11:30 am; City Hall Front Community Room

All interested stakeholders and members of the public are welcome to attend either of these meetings.
