PPI Fire Road/Shaded Fuel Break
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL Fire) is planning vegetation removal for maintenance along an exisitng fire road through the Padmasambhava Peace Institute (PPI) in western Sonoma County. This road will provide a connection between Fort Ross Road and Muniz Ranch Road, allowing a secondary egress route for Muniz Ranches Property Owners Association residents and a secondary egress route for guests and residents at PPI. It is near the western boundary of the 1978 Creighton Ridge Fire and will serve as a strategic location to combat a potential future wildfire. The maintenance of this road will improve access to a system of ridgeline roads that will aid in preventing a fire from burning in or out of the Cazadero Canyon.
