3 thoughts on “City’s southeastern residents required to meet higher vegetation management standards to protect against wildfire

  1. I worry about the ability of fire trucks to navigate narrow, winding streets such as Sandringham when residents park on both sides of the street. Traffic jams on these streets could also cause problems with evacuation if fire strikes. ( I am thinking back to the deaths in 1991 on Charing Cross as residents tried to evacuate)

  2. Requiring vegetation control in Very High Severity Fire zones (“SVHFZ”), including the area so designated in Piedmont, seems reasonable. Given that this was not heard by any commission and without resident input, the problem may arise in the future that the entire City will become subject to the more onerous controls that the VHSFZ is subject to.
