Public Review Draft Local Hazard Mitigation Plan - your input is invited

The Public Review Draft Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (draft LHMP)  is now available for community review and comment.  In order to develop the draft LHMP, the Town conducted community outreach last fall and winter. The outreach included a community survey as well as presentations to business and community groups. The input received helped shape the draft LHMP.  Town Council has reviewed the draft LHMP. The draft LHMP is now in the public review phase and comments received will be used to develop a final draft LHMP. The final draft LHMP will be submitted to the California Office of Emergency Services for review and approval.  The Town is inviting community members to participate in the planning process by reviewing and commenting on the Public Review Draft Local Hazard Mitigation Plan during the 30-day public review period. 
The 2011 Plan was a multi-jurisdictional plan, coordinated by the Association of Bay Area Government (ABAG), which included an Annex for the Town of Windsor. The LHMP is required to be updated every 5 years.  This Plan is the Town’s framework to mitigate risks to natural hazards and plan for a safer, more resilient future. Once complete, the Town will seek FEMA certification of the LHMP to maximize eligibility for future grant funding for hazard mitigation.
