Public participation in the process is important because it helps raise awareness of the hazards we face in South Gate and the actions needed to mitigate those hazards. By participating in the process, you will be taking time to consider the hazards in our community, the impact of those hazards on life and property, actions that need to be taken to reduce that impact, and the priority of these actions. The LHMP Planning Team will consider all input from the public and integrate it into the plan where appropriate. Opportunities for the community to provide input, ask questions, and review/comment on draft documents will be provided throughout the planning process. Your comments, questions, ideas, and concerns will have a significant role in the plan’s preparation.
TAKE OUR SURVEY. Beginning this fall, the LHMP community survey will be available via SurveyMonkey. This survey will help the LHMP Planning Team better understand the community’s concerns about natural hazards and identify policies and projects that can help lessen the impact of future hazard events. The survey provides the opportunity for you to share your opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous. Your information will be kept confidential. The final results of the survey will be included within the LHMP.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH EVENT. A community outreach event will be held in order to engage the public and provide further opportunity for community input. You are encouraged to attend the community outreach event and share your specific knowledge about hazards and hazard mitigation in your community. This is also an opportunity to be informed on the progress and status of the LHMP process.
PUBLIC REVIEW DRAFT LHMP. The LHMP will be made available for a two week public review period (anticipated to occur in early Fall 2023), where the City welcomes your comments and questions.
Contact the City with questions and comments via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once available, draft documents will be posted here for review and comment
