Community Wildfire Protection Program Reduce Hazardous Fuels
The North Tahoe and Meeks Bay Community Wildfire Protection Plan Implementation Project will reduce hazardous fuels on at least 135 acres in the wildland-urban interface. The areas targeted for treatment include 514 priority acres of private and local government land in both North Tahoe Fire Protection District (NTFPD) and Meeks Bay Fire Protection District. The areas included were identified as priority projects through recent interagency planning efforts to update the Lake Tahoe Basin Multi-Jurisdictional Fuel Reduction and Wildfire Prevention Strategy, and to revise Community Wildfire Protection Plans.
