The City's draft Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) will be presented to the public during a virtual meeting on Wednesday March 10, 2021 at 6:00 PM. Everyone in the community is encouraged to watch the meeting, ask questions and share their input. The meeting link is posted online. In June of 2019, the City was awarded a $100,000 Cal Fire grant for the development of a CWPP. A CWPP identifies and prioritizes areas for hazardous fuel reduction treatments and outlines an action plan that will protect at-risk communities and essential infrastructure from wildfire, as well as make recommendations to reduce structural ignitability throughout the community. Having a CWPP in place also increases the City's chances of securing grant funding to implement the recommended action items.
