Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
The City of Paso Robles is beginning the process of updating the 2005 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of hazard mitigation is to reduce potential losses from future disasters. Mitigation plans identify the natural hazards that impact communities, identify actions to reduce losses from those hazards, and establish a coordinated process to implement the plan.
As part of the update process, the City must review and revise its plan to reflect changes in development, progress in local mitigation efforts, and changes in priorities and resubmit for FEMA approval. For more information visit www.prcity.com/government/LHMP-Plan.asp.
