What's New - May 2017 Minimize

Weed Abatement Program Underway

As of the last week of April, all vacant lot owners should have received a yellow notice regarding Weed Abatement requirements on their property. Unlike past years, the District will NOT be providing contractor services during the 2017 season. All vacant lot owners are responsible for their own mitigation efforts. A list of licensed weed abatement contractors is available at the link below. The District may issue a citation on all vacant parcels that have not been cleared of combustible vegetation (weeds over 12” in height, sage brush, chaparral, poison oak, etc.) after June 1, 2017.

Defensible Space Clearance

Have you created a “Defensible Space” around your home? Defensible space is an area adjacent to your home where the vegetation has been modified to reduce the wildfire threat and to provide an area where firefighters can effectively defend your property. For more information on creating your defensible space, please see the publication "Living With Fire" at the link provided, or click the photo to the right of this article.
