Geologic Hazard Zones
These are areas of San José where potential geologic hazards such as fault rupture or slope instability may impact a proposed development. Geotechnical studies and geologic hazard mitigation measures may be required to ensure that the proposed construction will not be potentially endangered by geologic hazards and that the proposed project will not create an unsafe condition. Construction proposed in a Geologic Hazard Zone requires a Geologic Hazard Clearance prior to approval of planning or building permits.
