The city of Santa Clarita will host two free Hazard Mitigation Public Workshops to familiarize residents with the city's Hazard Mitigation Plan, which helps city planning officials to identify, evaluate, and assess ways to reduce the risk of local natural hazards.

The first workshop is slated for Thursday, April 15 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Sports Complex Activities Center. 

The second is on Thursday, April 29 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. in City Hall's first floor Council Chambers.

The Hazard Mitigation Plan implements damage prevention efforts to lessen the impact of natural disasters, including earthquakes, wildfires, floods and more, on residents' lives and property. The plan also creates and enforces effective building codes to protect property from natural hazards, and secures local eligibility for pre- and post-disaster federal funding.

"The city's Hazard Mitigation Public Workshops will help to inform local residents about Santa Clarita's Hazard Mitigation Plan, while offering attendees the opportunity to voice their concerns on local natural hazard risks and issues," said Santa Clarita Mayor Laurene Weste.

"By receiving input from the community, the workshops allow city planning officials to update Santa Clarita's mitigation goals to closely align with the concerns of the community."

City Hall is located at 23920 Valencia Boulevard, Valencia 91355.

The Sports Complex Activities Center is located at 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway, Valencia 91355.
