The Hazard Mitigation Plan will identify hazards specific to Culver City and the CCUSD jurisdiction, assess vulnerability, and identify mitigation actions. Additionally, the Plan will identify how its implementation will be monitored, evaluated, and updated within a five-year cycle.
- Hazard Profiles: type, location, extent, previous occurrences, probability of future events.
- Vulnerability Assessment: impacts of hazards, vulnerability to each hazard, repetitive loss, potential dollar losses
- Mitigation Strategies: overarching goals, specific actions, and prioritization of those actions to reduce hazard impacts
The Hazard Mitigation Plan is developed from a process-oriented approach, utilizing the experience of community partners such as neighboring cities and Los Angeles County, as well as utilities, hospitals, large employers, outside agencies, and nonprofit organizations. These community partners provide key stakeholder input on the hazard profiles, vulnerability assessment, and mitigation strategies, which is documented and incorporated into the Plan. Public participation is also an important component in the planning process and will include opportunities for the community to provide input and then review/comment on draft documents.
Once completed, the Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan will be submitted to Cal OES and FEMA for review and comment. Once conditional approval is received from Cal OES and FEMA, the Plan is approved locally by the Culver City Council and the CCUSD Board.
