Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

Dear Residents of Villa Park,

The City of Villa Park (City) has received a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to prepare a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan, (LHMP). The City is in process of preparation of this plan with the assistance from its consultant Engineering Solutions Services.

This plan will identify the potential natural hazards impacting the city and how to mitigate these hazards and their impacts on the functions of the City and its residents.

Once approved by FEMA, the LHMP will allow the City to request funding from FEMA and the State of California to mitigate the effects of these natural Hazards.

Please, review the sections of the LHMP as they are created and posted on the City’s Website at: www.villpark.org and click on the LHMP link and provide your comments to our consultant:

Coyotes in the Community

Coyotes in the Community

Residents may begin to notice an increase in coyote presence as the coyote mating season starts in late January through February and with pups born between March and April. Coyotes can be aggressive and protective during mating or when protecting their litter of pups. As we approach the Spring season, water and food sources become more readily available to coyotes and wildlife in general, as well as the extensive growth of vegetation which provides ideal conditions for a coyote den. 

Please click here to go to OC Animal Care's website to report coyote sightings, to see where there have been coyote sightings within your neighborhood, and for information on reporting aggressive coyote behavior.

For information about:

  • Coyote Identification and Behavior
