2022 Draft Community Wildfire Protection Plan Available
View the Draft Plan, and Learn More About Public Input Opportunities, at http://www.lakecountyca.gov/Page3801.aspx
The 2022 Draft Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) was developed in partnership with the Lake County Fire Safe Council, Lake County Community Risk Reduction Authority, Lake County Resource Conservation District (RCD), Clear Lake Environmental Research Center, Lake County’s Fire Protection Districts and members of the Lake County Fire Chiefs Association.
During early stages of draft development, initial feedback was obtained through the public meetings of Municipal Advisory Councils and other community groups, particularly as the Lake County Fuel-Reduction & Prevention Priorities List and Action Plan, central to the document, were being crafted.
The County of Lake is excited the Draft CWPP is now available for public inspection and comment:
Government-to-Government Feedback Period Open Now
Wednesday evening, 9/14, a Workshop was held for Lake County government entities interested in providing “Government-to-Government” input regarding the Draft 2022 Lake County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP), and the process undertaken to develop it.
Many thanks to all who participated, and particularly Supervisors Moke Simon and Jessica Pyska for their leadership in bringing Lake County’s wildfire and disaster-focused entities together, and Dr. Harry Lyons and Lake County Resource Conservation District (RCD), for their considerable efforts to coordinate development of the Draft CWPP.
Thursday, September 15, marked the beginning of a 15-day period for local governments to submit written Government-to-Government input.
Those commenting on a particular portion of the Draft report are asked to provide references (e.g., page numbers, paragraph numbers, etc.), to allow ready identification of the content proposed to be changed.
For written Government-to-Government input to be considered prior to our upcoming Public-facing CWPP Workshop, please submit your comments to Matthew.Rothstein@lakecountyca.gov no later than Close of Business Friday, September 30.
Representatives of government entities that were unable to attend the September 14 Workshop are likewise invited to contact Matthew Rothstein, Deputy County Administrative Officer, at Matthew.Rothstein@lakecountyca.gov, to convey any needs or request additional information.
