 ....  "The City of Pacifica, along with the County of San Mateo and other cities in the County, is preparing to update its annex to the existing Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.  The process will include a review of the hazards that threaten our community and identify ways to reduce the damage from the risks associated with the following types of disasters:  earthquakes, floods, wildfires, climate change/sea level rise.

Although having a Hazard Mitigation Plan enables the City to receive post-event emergency assistance grant money, the real value lies in identifying the hazards we'll face and will help to outline how the City and residents can prepare.

We invite Pacifica residents to share their thoughts, ideas, and local knowledge in the process of updating the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan.  Citizens can be part of the planning process and provide valuable feedback in two ways: by completing an online survey at City Hall Listens on the City of Pacifica homepage or by attending a planning workshop at the Pacifica Police Department at 2075 Coast Highway on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 at 6:30 PM."  More information is available on the PDF link above.

Reference.  City of Pacifica/Police Department.   City Hall Listens: on line survey. "We want your input on the City of Pacifica's Hazard Mitigation Plan." "This is a brief survey consisting of 22 questions. The survey provides an opportunity for Pacifica residents to share opinions and participate in the plan update process. The information you provide will help the Planning Team better understand your hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that lessen the impacts of future disasters. Participation in this survey is voluntary and the information you provide will not be attributed to you directly."
