Safety Element Update 2021

Revised Safety Element Adopted


The Alpine County Board of Supervisors adopted a comprehensive revision to the General Plan Safety Element on August 17, 2021 (Resolution R2021-49).  The Safety Element is a mandatory element of the General Plan which establishes goals, policies, and implementation measures to reduce the risk of hazards to people and property. The Alpine County Safety Element incorporates the Alpine County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (2018) and contains goals, policies, and implementation measures to reduce hazards from wildland fire, geologic hazards, floods, noise, and hazardous materials. The Alpine County Planning Commission recommended approval of the Safety Element update on July 30, 2020.  The revised General Plan Safety Element can be viewed and downloaded at the link below:
