Town Of Moraga

Geologic Hazard and Abatement District Formation

On May 14, the Town Council considered options for the formation of a Geologic Hazard Abatement District (GHAD) for several proposed developments with conditions of approval requiring GHADs. GHADs are formed for the purposes of managing and abating geologic hazards such as landslides. The Town Council gave direction to staff to work on formation of a GHAD for Moraga, with boundaries, at a minimum to include Rancho Laguna II, Palos Colorados, and Hetfield Estates. The Town Council also expressed its preference to serve as the GHAD Board. Staff will be working with ENGEO, a leading expert in GHAD formation and management, to advise on the process.
