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.
If you haven’t already done so, please click on the link below to take a quick survey by October 30, 2015 to share your opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process:
