Greater Ross Valley Shaded Fuel Break Project Approved!
This project will create a 38-mile shaded fuel break running along the backyards of about 1,700 parcels in the Greater Ross Valley. The fuel reduction zone includes about 1,300 acres from Fairfax to Corte Madera. The project is designed to slow the spread of wildfire to give firefighters time and space to suppress the flames. This project would reduce fire risk to several communities in the wildland urban interface (otherwise known as the WUI) while improving forest and ecosystem health by reducing non-native plant cover.
