The city of Santa Clarita is encouraging residents to partake in a survey aimed to help the city plan ahead and reduce the potential impacts of natural and man-made disasters.

Feedback is expected to help the city develop the 2021 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan, a wide-ranging plan that identifies hazards affecting Santa Clarita and ways that the city can work independently and with other agencies to reduce damage to life and property, officials said in a recent news release. 

Every five years, as part of a public process, the city evaluates what can be done through damage prevention. The survey allows residents to weigh in on preparedness in the event of an emergency.

The survey will remain available through Jan. 25 and can be conducted from one’s own home using a computer or smartphone. 

To take the online survey, visit santa-clarita.com/LHMP.     

Paper copies of the survey are also available at several city facilities, including:

  • City Hall, Suite 120; 23920 Valencia Blvd.
  • Valencia Library, 23743 W. Valencia Blvd.
  • Canyon Country Library, 18601 Soledad Canyon Road.
  • Old Town Newhall Library, 24500 Main St.
  • The Centre, 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway.

For more information on the plan and the survey, contact Emergency Operations Analyst Roya Hickman at 661-286-4093 or [email protected]
