Purpose of the Meeting: The County of Sonoma is updating its 2016 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan to a Multijurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (Hazard Plan). The Hazard Plan is a cross-jurisdictional effort to plan for and identify projects to reduce risk from natural disasters. The planning process has been overseen by a Steering Committee made up of stakeholders who represent an interdisciplinary group of experts in planning and emergency management, as well as environmental organizations and business industry representatives. This Steering Committee launched August 2020 and has met monthly throughout the planning process.
This specific meeting will give an overview of the goals and objectives of the Hazard Plan and provide an introduction to the Hazard Plan Story Map. The Story Map is a useful tool to gain information about the planning process, the mitigation actions underway, and updated hazard and risk data for the entire county.
We want to ensure Oakmont Residents are aware of the opportunity to comment to help make this plan as strong and relevant as possible, as the Hazard Plans are only updated every 5 years so we need to make this count.
