Safety Element Update

The City is embarking on updating the Public Health and Safety Element! The Safety Element is one of the elements or chapters of the City’s General Plan the blueprint for the way Cloverdale will grow.  The purpose of the Safety Element is to include safety considerations in the planning and decision‐making process by establishing policies related to future development that will minimize the risk of personal injury, loss of life, property damage, and environmental damage associated with natural and man‐made hazards. The Safety Element addresses the Cloverdale’s natural hazards and human activities that may pose a threat to public safety within the following topic areas: wildfire, flooding, geological, hazardous materials and waste, airport safety, pandemic, and drought.
