[ARCHIVED] Draft Joint Hazard Mitigation Plan Available for Public Comment

Joint Mitigation Hazard Plan Public Comment Open

Joint Hazard Mitigation Plan now Available for Public Comment

The 2019 draft Joint Hazard Mitigation Plan for the cities of Rancho Palos Verdes and Rolling Hills Estates is now available for review. The draft was developed through a series of meetings between the cities of Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills Estates and Emergency Planning Consultants.

The Hazard Mitigation Plan was prepared in response to Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000).  DMA 2000 (also known as Public Law 106-390) requires state and local governments to prepare mitigation plans to document their mitigation planning process and identify hazards, potential losses, mitigation needs, goals, and strategies.  This type of planning supplements the City’s comprehensive land use planning and emergency management planning programs.  This document is a federally-mandated update to the cities of Rancho Palos Verdes and Rolling Hills Estates 2014 Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan and ensures continuing eligibility for Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funding.

The Plan is designed to have the following benefits:

  • Reduce loss of life and property, human suffering, economic disruption, and disaster costs.
  • Prioritize hazard mitigation at the local level with increased emphasis on planning and public involvement, assessing risks, implementing loss reduction measures, and ensuring critical facilities/services survive a disaster.
  • Promote education and economic incentives to form community-based partnerships and leverage non-federal resources to commit to and implement long-term hazard mitigation activities.
