Forestland-Urban Interface Committee Meets Tomorrow
The Josephine County Forestland-Urban Interface classification committee meets tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. at the Grants Pass Fire-Rescue Station at 800 East Park Street.
The Committee will begin reviewing the forestland-urban interface identification and classification maps created by the previous committee in 2008.
The committee focuses on developed urban and suburban lands that are in areas where potentially destructive wildfires are likely to occur and where there is a structural density of at least four dwellings per 40 acres. Owners of these lands are required to reduce potentially flammable vegetation around structures and along driveways.
