Draft wildfire plan ready for comment

Detail from the Community Wildfire Protection Plan

The preliminary draft of the Community Wildfire Protection Plan of San Mateo and Santa Cruz Counties is available for comment.  

This CWPP attempts to identify wildfire hazards in our region and provide strategies to mitigate risk and restore healthier, more resilient ecosystems.  It is also a tool to obtain grant funding to aid in the implementation of local wildfire prevention projects.

The plan is available at www.sanmateorcd.org/cwpp.html or you can download the relevant portions from Coastsider.

Public comments will be accepted until 5pm on Friday, March 19. Cal Fire will integrate comments into a final draft by March 31.  You can email your comments to [email protected].

More information about the CWPP is available on their blog: http://wildfireplan.blogspot.com
