The planning process for updating the 2016 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan will this time utilize a Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Planning approach. This will involve collaboration with local jurisdictions and the community.
Jurisdictions Currently Involved:
- Santa Rosa
- Sonoma County Ag + Open Space District
- Sonoma County Fire Districts
- Gold Ridge and Sonoma Resource Conservation Districts
During this process, participants will be asked to contribute by sharing local knowledge of an area’s exposure to hazards based on your agency’s history in our community. Opportunities will be offered via a multimedia campaign that will include public meetings, web based information, questionnaires and updates on the plan’s progress via the news media.
The process will be overseen by a Steering Committee made up of stakeholders who represent an interdisciplinary group of experts in emergency management as well as community members. This Steering Committee will meet monthly throughout the planning process. These meetings will open to the public. The virtual meetings will be posted on the Hazard Mitigation calendar page once they are finalized.
Individual questions or comments regarding this project and engagement process are encouraged and should be directed to Lisa Hulette, Permit Sonoma Grant Manager at Lisa.firstname.lastname@example.org
