When: Thu., March 18, 12-1 p.m. 2021
Our March forum will focus the discussion on the potential adoption of county and city codes to require fire mitigation measures in our building and landscaping practices. The county is currently considering this very question as are some cities within the county. A downside to stricter code is the possibility of increased home costs in an area that is already struggling with affordable housing. While this is very relevant, there has been little discussion about the longer-term socio-economic challenges of post-fire recovery if fire mitigation measures are not adopted.
