Forestland – Urban Interface Committee Meets Friday
The Josephine County Forestland-Urban Interface Classification Committee meets Friday, 1:00 p.m., in the Grants Pass Fire-Rescue Parkway Station at 800 East Park St. The committee will continue its review of forestland-urban interface areas in Josephine County. Once the committee’s review is complete, it will present its proposed findings at a public hearing.
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.
