City Seeks Online Feedback on Hazard Mitigation Plan through Nov. 12

South Lake Tahoe, CA…The City of South Lake Tahoe asks members of the community to participate in the Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) Survey. The survey, which was developed by Wood Environment and Infrastructure Solutions in coordination with South Lake Tahoe Fire Rescue, is being conducted online and is open now through Friday, November 12.

Public Participation in the planning process is an essential strategy for developing a plan that will be effective, supported by community members, and ultimately implemented. The purpose of the survey is to collect information from the public to better understand vulnerabilities within the city, as well as solicit input on what hazards might need to be mitigated to either reduce their impacts or prevent them before they occur. The results from the survey will be taken into consideration by the Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee as they draft the LHMP.

The process will provide a range of opportunities for the City and its citizens, public officials, and stakeholder groups to participate and give input on the plan. Interested stakeholders and community members can learn more about the LHMP and updates on the process by going to the City’s LHMP Webpage ( The first of two public meetings on the LHMP will be conducted at the Oct. 15 Community Conversation at City Hall at 5:30pm.
