- General Plan Safety Element Update Project
- The purpose of the general plan safety element to identify natural or human activity related hazards that exist in South Gate and to define policy objectives and implementation actions to address them. Some naturally occurring hazards may be unavoidable, but the potential impact on South Gate can be reduced through advance 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. In addition, the city is updating the South Gate Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. The LHMP includes an assessment of the city's risk related to natural hazard impacts such as drought, seismic events, extreme heat, and flooding.
