In response to California Senate Bill 379 (SB 379), the City of Chico said it is developing strategies to adapt to the effects of climate change for incorporation into the Chico General Plan Safety Element.
The community is invited to provide initial input through a survey found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/L993ZCX. Signed into law in 2015, SB 379 requires the City to incorporate climate adaptation and resiliency strategies into its General Plan.
Completing this statewide requirement will result in a more resilient community and make the City eligible for state and federal disaster funding. Through the survey, community members will learn more about effects climate change poses to the community and be given an opportunity to make recommendations on climate adaptation measures.
The survey will be open through April 12, 2021.
