Community Engagement: Public Input is Now Open for the City of Rosemead

Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update.

Deadline to Complete the Survey is June 20, 2024


The City of Rosemead is in the process of updating its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) and wants your input to shape it.  The City shared a draft plan last September that included initial public input that was submitted to the State for review.

Now, the City is gathering more in-depth insights from both the public and community partners regarding hazards and preparedness levels.  Your input will directly influence the revised draft plan.  It’s critical to stay engaged throughout this process, from research strategy updates to approval.  Once FEMA gives conditional approval of the plan, a Final Draft Plan will be shared before its adopted by the City Council, with continued opportunities for community involvement.  

What is a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan?

The Local Hazard Mitigation Plan is a document that outlines the City’s long-term strategy to eliminate risk to human life, property, and infrastructure from future natural and man-made disasters.  To stay relevant and complete, the plan is updated every 5 years.  With our last plan adopted in 2018, we are actively working on our update.  An up-to-date plan ensures that residents are prepared, and the City remains eligible for State and Federal emergency funds.

What can residents and community partners do to help?

Residents are encouraged to visit the City website dedicated to hazard mitigation planning.  Also, we have created a 10-minute video to explain the hazard mitigation planning process.  To gather community feedback, we invite everyone to complete a three-minute survey on hazard mitigation. This survey will close on June 20, 2024, to incorporate feedback into the next draft of the plan
