Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

Resiliency Cycle: Response, Recovery, Mitigation, Preparedness, Disaster


In November 2015, the City of Santa Rosa kicked off the development of a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP). This document will provide the City’s framework to mitigate local risks to natural hazards and plan for a resilient future.


From November to January, the City conducted public outreach and engaged stakeholders to elicit feedback and input on the process and plan. The Draft Plan was available for public review in February, 2016.


The Draft Plan was sent to the California Department of Emergency services and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for review. FEMA has conditionally approved Santa Rosa's plan. The City Council will consider adoption of the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan on January 10, 2017.
