Pebble Beach CSD, Cypress FPD, and Carmel Highlands FPD Fire Defense Plans Initial Study
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The Cypress FPD, the Carmel Highlands FPD, and the Pebble Beach CSD are located in unincorporated Monterey County along the central coast between the cities of Pacific Grove, Monterey and Del Rey Oaks to the north and Malpaso Creek to the south, approx five miles south of the Carmel River and extend inland by about three miles. The project is implementation of Cypress FPD Fire Defense Plan and the Carmel Highlands FPD Fire Defense Plan, and an update of the Pebble Beach CSD Fire Defense Plan. The three plans provide a system of consistent emergency access identification by designating existing roads and trails as fire roads and fire road/fuel breaks and by providing recommended standards for implementation of preventive fuel hazards reduction, vegetation management, and fire road/fuel break maintenance activities that would be routinely conducted within each of the districts. The Cypress FPD and Carmel Highlands FPD fire defense plans and Pebble Beach CSD defense plan update provide comprehensive policy standards for maintaining existing- and newly-designated fuel breaks and fire roads that would not otherwise be maintained pursuant to the defensible space requirements of Pubic Resources Code Section 4291.
