Local Hazard Mitigation Plan DRAFT Available for Comment

The City of Piedmont has been working on the development of a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) since September of 2018. This work has culminated in a draft LHMP, which has been submitted to CalOES and FEMA for review. Following their review, the plan will go to City Council for final review and approval. 

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 will be scheduled at a future regularly scheduled City Council Meeting. Residents are encouraged to review the document and provide input. Comments can be made at the meeting or using the methods below.
