Public Meetings on Vegetation Management Plan and Environmental Impact Report

On Wednesday, March 29 and Thursday, March 30 the Oakland Fire Department will host meetings to discuss the preparation of a Vegetation Management Plan (Plan) and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) that will describe how the City will assess and manage vegetation on more than 1,400 acres of City-owned lands and along approximately 300 miles of roadway to reduce the risk of destructive wildfires. Both meetings will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  Location details below:

  • March 29 – Dunsmuir-Hellmann Historic Estate: 2960 Peralta Oaks Court
  • March 30 – Richard C. Trudeau Center: 11500 Skyline Boulevard

We encourage your involvement in this process. The Plan will describe ongoing and future vegetation management activities for a ten-year timeframe, and the EIR will evaluate the potential effects of the Plan on our region’s natural resources. Public review and comment on the scope of the Plan and EIR will be taken in early summer 2017, with the draft Plan expected for public review in the later summer months.
