The East Bay Regional Park District is inviting residents to weigh in on their response plan in the event of natural hazards.

In line with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, the park district is updating its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan to prevent harm on regional parks and local neighborhoods.

If approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the park district will be able to apply for grants that aid the community pre- and post-disaster.

The park district drafted the plan after it received public comments in May 2022. District officials will present the proposed update to state and federal emergency services this December.

Residents can tune into the final public meeting via Zoom on Nov. 16 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

More information on the project can be found on the park district’s website.
