Hi FOSCers,

You may have read in the June board meeting staff report that we 
encourage all to get involved in the public meetings being held as the 
Oakland Fire Department develops a Vegetation Management Plan.The next 
public meeting is on Thursday, June 29, 6-8 p.m. at the Trudeau 
Center.Below is the meeting notice.You can receive future updates by 
joining the email list at https://oaklandvegmanagement.org.

The Vegetation Management Plan will directly affect our work and 
priorities in a number of ways. As the plan gets developed, we are 
speaking out to make sure it includes 1) recognition of native plant 
restoration as an important factor in fire prevention, 2) flagging of 
natives so they don’t get cut or destroyed along with nonnatives, 3) 
recognition of various volunteer groups (like FOSC) that play an 
important role in fuel reduction efforts, and 4) employing a biologist 
to help formulate specific site plans for each city property covered by 
the plan. We support the vegetation management plan effort as a key step 
in more effective wildfire prevention. Thanks,

Oakland Vegetation Management Plan Update

  *Oakland Vegetation Management Plan Update*

*June 13, 2017*

The Oakland Fire Department is developing a Vegetation Management Plan 
(Plan) for city-owned parcels in the Oakland hills to reduce the threat 
of wildfire. Although initial studies are underway, it is still early in 
the planning process and no final decisions have been made.

You are invited to attend a public meeting on *_Thursday, June 29, 
2017_* to receive project updates and ask questions/provide feedback. 
Project staff will be available to provide a summary of the community 
survey responses received in March/April 2017, and to provide an update 
on Plan development, methodologies, and work completed and underway.

*Public Meeting: June 29, 2017, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM *
Richard C. Trudeau Conference Center
