What does this mean for my property?

At the individual property level, the results of this study are good news to many. The message to many residents from the 2019 study was that they may be living in a landslide hazard area and that additional, site-level geotechnical assessments may be required to determine the risk at the property level. By better defining the potentially hazardous areas at a higher resolution, the 2020 study effectively shrinks the hazard polygons, in many cases meaning that part or all of a property is no longer considered to be within a hazard zone. In cases where hazards still exist on a property, the 2020 mapping can provide additional information about the likelihood and extent of potential damage.
