Weed Abatement and Defensible Space

Letter sent to district residents May, 2011 regarding defensible space and weed abatement (PDF)

"In January 2005 a new state law became effective that extended the defensible space clearance around homes and structures from 30 feet to 100 feet. Proper clearance to 100 feet dramatically increases the chance of your house surviving a wildfire. This defensible space also provides for firefighter safety when protecting homes during a wildland fire." -Cal Fire
