**05/15/17 Update: Public comment has been closed. 

The City of Palos Verdes Estates is preparing a Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) in accordance with the Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000). DMA 2000 requires local governments to develop and submit HMPs as a condition of receiving Hazard Mitigation Grant Program and other mitigation project grant funding. This includes pre-disaster mitigation funding and post-disaster mitigation funding for existing City of Palos Verdes Estates facilities.

Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Draft 03.30.17

The HMP planning process requires input from stakeholders and the public. Generally, project stakeholders include neighboring jurisdictions and their agencies and departments that might interface with City during a disaster response. The public is represented by community members and community organizations that have an interest in City projects and actions to mitigate hazards and save lives and property.

The City of Palos Verdes Estates will continue to update the LHMP website throughout the planning process. Documents will be made available on this webpage. The City will post updates on social media when documents are available for review.

The City of Palos Verdes Estates welcomes the public to review and comment on the LHMP documents as they become available. For questions of comments contact the City of Palos Verdes Estates Emergency Services Coordinator, Marcelle Herrera at or 310-378-4211. You may also contact Director of Public Works/City Engineer, Ken Rukavina at or at 310-378-0383.
