Placer County hazard plan meetings set for next week

The Placer County Office of Emergency Services will hold two public meetings next week regarding an update to the county’s Local Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The first meeting will be from 6-7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 28, at Placer County Fire Station 180, 11645 Atwood Road in Auburn.

The second meeting will be from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, April 29, at North Tahoe Fire Protection District Station 51, 222 Fairway Drive in Tahoe City.

Two afternoon meetings will be held during the same two-day period for the county’s planning committee. The public can attend those meetings if they are more convenient:

Auburn: 2 to 5 p.m. April 28 in the Planning Commission Hearing Room at 3091 County Center Drive in Auburn.

Tahoe City: 2 to 5 p.m. April 29 at NTFPD Station 51

All four meetings will kick off the LHMP update process, according to Placer County, covering the purpose of the plan update, the process and ways to participate.

“The plan assesses risks from natural and man-made disasters and outlines ways to reduce or eliminate risks to people and property,” officials said. “The update is needed to maintain the county’s eligibility for federal mitigation funding, but can also help reduce the cost of flood insurance for residents through participation in the National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System.”
