The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Bay Conservation Development Commission (BCDC) invite jurisdictions that are developing or updating hazard mitigation plans, climate adaptation plans, or community safety elements, to participate in a workshop on assessing natural hazards and risks.
This is the second in a series of three workshops designed to support local governments in planning for existing hazards and preparing for future hazards due to climate change. The workshop series is designed to help you succeed in updating or creating your hazard mitigation plan, climate adaptation plan, or general plan safety element. The workshops have been designed following FEMA requirements for an approved hazard mitigation plan.
- Identify and prioritize current and future hazards impacting your jurisdiction
- Identify key community assets and data sources
- Evaluate options for assessing risk for natural hazards
- Learn from other jurisdictions and share successes and challenges in resilience planning
The workshop will be repeated in three locations.
- June 19th, 9-3pm, Solano County Events Center, Fairfield
- June 23rd, 9-3pm, Foster City Community Center
- June 25th, 9-3pm, Marin County Sheriff’s Office, San Rafael
In advance of the workshop, we encourage plan leaders to:
- Identify existing resilience goals in your community. Identifying goals early can help you decide how to focus time and resources in the risk assessment. Download the worksheet here.
- Conduct an initial screening of community assets. This can also help guide your risk assessment and identify data gaps. Download the worksheet here.
