Document Description
The Safety Element is a mandatory element of the General Plan required by Senate Bill 351, an act that became law on February 23, 1971. Originally addressed in two separate element of the General Plan, the Safety Element and Seismic Safety Element were combined into one element under California Government Code Article 5-65302 (1986). This update is intended to supersede and combine the existing Seismic Safety Element, which was adopted in 1974, and the Safety Element, which was adopted in 1975. The purpose of the General Plan Safety Element is to identify natural or human activity-related hazards that exist in Maricopa and to define policy objectives and implementation actions to address them. Some naturally occurring hazards may be unavoidable, but the potential impact on Maricopa can be reduced through advanced planning and preparation. The Safety Element addresses geologic, seismic, flood, and fire hazards, as well as hazards created by human activity such as hazardous materials and incidents that call for emergency protection. The Safety Element describes the City's efforts to prepare for and respond to emergencies.
