The City of Culver City and the Culver City Unified School District (CCUSD) are excited to inform you of a joint effort to prepare a Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (MJHMP) and to invite you to participate in this important process. A Hazard Mitigation Plan is a framework that guides our community in making decisions and developing policies to reduce or eliminate risk to life and property. The plan identifies the types of hazards that threaten our community, evaluates our vulnerability to those threats, and outlines a strategy to reduce or eliminate the risk posed by those threats to break the cycle of repeated destruction by natural hazard events.
Public participation in the process is important because it helps raise awareness of the hazards we face in Culver City and the actions needed to mitigate those hazards. By participating in the process you will be taking time to consider the hazards in our community, the impact of those hazards on life and property, actions that need to be taken to reduce that impact, and the priority those actions should take. Opportunities for the community to provide input, ask questions, and review/comment on draft documents will be provided throughout the planning process.
As an initial opportunity to participate in the mitigation planning process, please click on the link below to take a quick survey to share your opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process.
The City and CCUSD will also be hosting a Community Workshop/Learning Event this Thursday evening September 24, 2015 starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Senior Center, which is located at 4095 Overland Avenue. Please plan to attend!
