Present Land Use
Zoning is RD and General Plan Designation is Open Space

Document Description
The proposed project consists of fuel reduction and vegetation management activities on eight open space areas owned by the Town through the use of hand tool, mechanized equipment, and as needed herbicide use. The proposed project would reduce the fire hazard potential to residents and structures in the Town. Activities would occur in two types of areas within the open space areas: defensible space management zones are defined as areas in the Town-owned open space areas that are within 100 feet of residential structure or building. High-priority fire management areas are outside the defensible space management zones, identified based upon vegetation characteristics, fuel loads, fire ladders, grade, sun exposure, wind patterns and other considerations. The proposed project would include vegetation clearing (treatment) activities specific for defensible space management zones or high-priority fire management areas. However, many treatment activities in both areas would share many similar characteristics.
