Seismic upgrade support for housing
Finally, we’ll also continue to improve the seismic safety of Berkeley’s most vulnerable apartment buildings, which will help protect thousands of residents, including many low income residents in our community. Using a combination of technical assistance, requirements, as well as financial incentives in the form of tax rebates to encourage owners to retrofit houses, the City will further remove barriers to seismic upgrades in vulnerable buildings.
- Berkeley’s Resilience Strategy
Berkeley’s Resilience Strategy – the first in the Bay Area – is designed to advance community preparedness for some of Berkeley’s most pressing physical, social, and economic challenges.
