Members of the El Granada community are invited to a listening session hosted by the Resource Conservation District to share your insights, information, priorities, and resources related to wildfire resiliency. This is a valuable opportunity to provide input to the Panorama Environmental consultant team for the El Granada Wildfire Resiliency Scoping Project.

The purpose of the project is to develop a site-specific understanding of wildfire scenarios for El Granada and the surrounding community and scope a suite of actions that would most effectively reduce those risks. It will:

  • Define the wildfire risks to El Granada and affected communities, including overview of fire ecology, local fire history, fire environment (fuels characteristics, fuel models, weather, topography)
  • Assess wildfire risks to El Granada and affected communities, including most likely scenarios, ignition probability, fire behavior, potential fire spread, and general identification of values at risk
  • Identify and scope an array of potential actions that would most effectively reduce those risks and build wildfire resiliency

The consultants are in their information-gathering phase, which includes input from the community. This meeting will focus on listening to the community and will not be a report out about the project.

There are a number of ways to get additional information or updates about the El Granada Wildfire Resiliency Scoping Project, including:

  • Contact the project manager, Sheena Sidhu, at sheena[at]sanmateoRCD.org.
  • Join regular meetings of the Midcoast Community Council to ask questions or get updates.
  • Visit the project web page here.
  • Ask questions or make comments at monthly meetings of the RCD Board of Directors.
  • Future public meetings focused on reporting out about efforts to reduce risk of wildfire.
