The Alliance of Regional Collaboratives for Climate Adaptation (ARCCA) released this fact sheet to explain the basic requirements of SB 379 for California communities. SB 379 will require cities and counties within California to integrate climate adaptation into their general plans by January 1, 2017 or January 1, 2022 depending on whether or not that city or county has adopted a Local Hazard Mitigation Plan. The fact sheet also describes a 3-step process cities and counties can use to meet the requirements.
