2005-2006 Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan

 2006 Annual Plan Review

The Roseville City Council approved the first annual Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Progress report on August 16, 2006 and directed staff to continue implementing the mitigation measures contained in the Plan. An annual review of the action items is required by the adopted Plan and the Disaster Mitigation Act.

The City's Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Steering Committee convened as required on July 20, 2006. The Committee members reviewed the progress made during the first year of implementation and made suggestions for edits to be made to the Plan at the five-year update. The annual meeting fulfilled the following obligations:

  • Review and prepare a report to Council that details progress on the action items in the Plan to better prepare the City in the event of a natural or human-caused disaster.
  • Maintain compliance with the Community Rating System that requires an annual review for the City's CRS Recertification.
  • Provide an opportunity for the public to provide input per the Disaster Mitigation Act, the federal legislation that mandates the Mitigation Plan.
  • Request input from the Committee and the public as to what changes or enhancements should be made to the Plan and document these to be included in the 5-year Plan Update.

2005 Plan Adoption

Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan

On Wednesday, July 20, 2005, the Roseville City Council adopted the Roseville Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Plan was then submitted, as required by federal law, for review by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The City was notified in correspondence dated August 9, 2005 that the Plan is in compliance with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 and is approved by FEMA.

The approval letter from FEMA’s Region IX Mitigation Division Director Sally Ziolkowski states in part:

“The City of Roseville California can be commended for its planning process, community participation efforts, catalog of mitigation alternatives, and the clear direction this Plan gives for long-term planning to reduce the impacts of future disasters.”

The City Council adopted the Plan following nine months of public meetings with an ad hoc Steering Committee, an on-line survey of Roseville residents, two public workshops on natural and human-caused hazards, and a special workshop of the City Council on May 31, 2005 to discuss the Plan contents. The City Council workshop can be viewed in its entirety by clicking the link on the right. The City also prepared a mitigated negative declaration for the Plan that was posted for public comment during the month of May 2005 and adopted by the Council in July as part of the final action.

The federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2000) requires all local agencies in the country to adopt a federally approved Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan in order to receive post-disaster mitigation funds. The DMA emphasizes planning for disasters before they occur. The Plan must inventory potential natural hazards that the City is most vulnerable to, assess the risk to Roseville's citizens, buildings and critical facilities, and develop a mitigation plan to reduce the City's risk and allow a swift and organized recovery should a disaster occur.

Roseville's plan is unique in that the City included an analysis of human-caused hazards that was not required by the pre-September 11th federal legislation. The City also followed the a script prescribed by the Community Rating System so that Roseville could meet CRS classification prerequisites, clearing the way for the City to become the first Class 1 community in the nation.
