Geologic Hazards are areas that pose a hazard to life and property due to existing geologic conditions, including risk of slide, presence of unstable soils such as peat or liquefaction-prone soils, or elevated exposure to volcanic or seismic events. Permit applications in geologic hazard areas frequently require additional geotechnical information to address these conditions and may be subject to additional development regulations. Landslide-prone areas, including steep slopes, are also subject to tree and vegetation requirements to reduce erosion and stabilize slopes.
