Beginning Thursday, the public may weigh in on a long-term Sonoma County plan to enhance wildfire protections and minimize damage.
A draft of a Community Wildfire Protection Plan will be presented during a 6 p.m. Zoom meeting for Sonoma County’s second district, which includes Petaluma.
The plan and other upcoming meetings are listed on the county’s official website for the plan.
“There’s gonna be lot of information presented at these meetings to give people context to what we are doing,” said Bradley Dunn, policy manager with Sonoma County’s Permit & Resource Management Department.
The 400-page plan identifies high-risk areas and prioritizes projects designed to minimize the threat and damage of wildfires.
Projects include developing an evacuation plan for Bohemian Highway communities in the western county, a prescribed burn in the Sugarhood Complex area east of Santa Rosa and improving emergency response and preparedness in the Camp Meeker area.
The plan is expected to go before the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors for approval later this year.
