Local Hazard Mitigation Plan DRAFT Available for Comment

The City of Piedmont has been working on development of a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) since September of 2018. This work has culminated in a draft LHMP, which is now available for public review and comment.

Fires, earthquakes, landslides, and severe weather are just a few of the hazards to the Piedmont community. While natural 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 Hazard Mitigation Plan are eligible to apply for both pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding.

Public Review Draft

The Public Review Draft of the LHMP is available online (pdf format).  It is also available in print at City Hall.

Public Meeting to Receive Comment

A final public meeting to review and provide comments on the Public Review draft LHMP is scheduled for Wednesday, April 10th at 6:00 p.m. in the Police Department EOC, located at 403 Highland Ave. Residents are encouraged to review the document and provide input. Comments can be made at the April 10th meeting or using the methods below.
