While no one can predict or protect the City against every possible hazard, potential impacts can be anticipated and steps taken to avoid or reduce the harm they may cause. The effort to draft a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan is part of an ongoing process to evaluate the risks that hazards pose to the City of Lake Elsinore and will set the framework for the community to pursue in order to reduce these risks. This work is being supported by a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and is a prerequisite to obtain future funds for construction of hazard mitigation projects, such as flood detention basins.
The public is welcome and encouraged to participate in the process and to comment on the draft Hazard Mitigation Plan during its drafting stages and prior to seeking final approval from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
