The goal of the USLTRCD PWP is to meet the need for programmatic permitting for high-priority forest health and fuels management projects to reduce the threat of catastrophic wildfire and improve ecological conditions for forests, woodlands, and grasslands within the coastal zone. The PWP provides a planning framework to efficiently review and authorize vegetation management projects within the Program Area over the next ten years using principles, strategies, and best management practices that align fire prevention planning with the protection of coastal resources.View public comment and responses by clicking here
Cambria Reserves and Hearst Ranch Project Specific Analyses (PSA's)
Forested landscapes and ecosystems are undergoing significant change as the climate warms, forest health declines, and altered fire regimes and increased fuel loads lead to more catastrophic wildfires. Cambria Reserves and Hearst Ranch forest health vegetation treatment projects are two specific projects that will be implemented under this PWP and that is intended to be an integral component of the PWP, pursuant to 14 Cal. Code 23 Regs Section 13358.View the Cambria Reserves Project Specific Analysis by clicking here.pdfView the Hearst Ranch Project Specific Analysis by clicking here.pdf
