Roseville Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan 2012 Annual Report available for public comment

The public is invited to review and provide comments on the City of Roseville’s 2012 Annual Report for the 2011 Roseville Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan.

Printed copies of the plan are available for public review at the Roseville City Clerk’s Office, as well as the Downtown, Maidu and Riley Libraries. Comments on the plan can be submitted September 12–19 to Carl Walker, Senior Civil Engineer, by calling (916) 774-1300 or e-mailing cwalker@roseville.ca.us. Citizens can also share input at the Roseville City Council meeting at 7 p.m., Wednesday, September 19, 2012.

Roseville’s original plan was adopted by the City Council in July 2005, with an update on January 19, 2011. The plan details the risks of natural and manmade hazards in Roseville and includes programs and projects that can help reduce the exposure of residents and businesses should an event occur. The Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires local communities to have a current hazard mitigation plan as a condition for receiving certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance, including funding for mitigation projects. The annual maintenance report to the City Council provides Roseville a way to monitor, evaluate and update the plan. For more information, contact the City of Roseville Public Works Department at (916) 746-1300.
