November 16 Zoom Meeting on Updated Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

The East Bay Regional Park District is updating its 2017 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) in accordance with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. While natural hazards such as wildfire, drought, earthquakes, floods, and severe weather cannot be entirely prevented in the East Bay, the Park District’s LHMP development process helps reduce the impacts of natural hazards on Regional Parks and surrounding communities. Communities with approved Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) local hazard mitigation plans are eligible to apply for both pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding.

In May 2022, the Park District held its first public meeting, and as public comments were received, the District began updating the 2017 LHMP to create a new draft. The 2022 draft update of the LHMP is scheduled to be finalized and submitted to the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services and FEMA in December 2022.

The public is invited to attend the second and final public meeting on November 16, 2022, via zoom to provide comments on the draft LHMP before its submittal.
