The Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) for the City of Santa Clarita has been certified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
The approval of the LHMP by FEMA maintains the City’s eligibility for grants through FEMA’s hazard mitigation assistance program and other sources. The LHMP will also be used as the City develops plans and works with other agencies to protect residents and businesses from harm resulting from a wide variety of natural and manmade hazards. For this update of the LHMP, Interwest and the City added the new topic of “Pandemics” to the list of hazards.
Members of our planning team, including Eric Norris and Chantal Powers, assisted the City’s Community Development Department in the update of the City’s prior LHMP, including conducting a Risk Assessment, developing Hazard Mitigation Strategies, and writing the final Hazard Mitigation Plan.
