2022 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update Public Meeting #1

Thursday, May 26, 2022 (Oakland, CA) – The Park District is updating its 2017 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). Wildfire, drought, earthquakes, floods, and severe weather are just a few of the hazards of concern to the Park District. While natural hazards such as these cannot be prevented, a LHMP forms a strategy to reduce and minimize disaster losses by breaking the repeated cycle of disaster damage and reconstruction. Communities with a FEMA-approved LHMP are eligible to apply for both pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding.

The people most aware of potential hazards are the people that live and work in the affected communities. In addition to input and participation of local, state and federal agencies, the Park District is seeking input and participation from the public.

An initial public information meeting will be held as follow:
