The MFPD is developing the Montecito Community Fire Protection Plan to reduce fuel loads and flammability in heavily vegetated areas by removing and selectively eliminating dead and decated vegetation over a five-year period. This will serve to reduce the amount of dead and decated vegetative fuels in selected fire hazard zones, including hazard reduction zones along roadsides. When clearing is not feasible vegetation would be modified to effect more favorable fire behavior conditions. In carring out the Plan, the MFPD has considered how vegetation control can be successfully accomplished while minimizing conflicts with important environmental resources.
