The Board of Forestry (BOF) will be holding its next regularly scheduled board meeting on September 21 and 22, 2021. Although the meeting agenda has not yet been released, BOF staff has notified RCRC that it does not intend to bring the Fire Safe Regulations proposal up for discussion at the next scheduled board meeting.
Additionally, last month during discussions with RCRC staff on the proposed rulemaking, BOF staff stated that they intended to release a revised draft of the Fire Safe Regulations at the end of September, commencing a second 45-day public comment period.
During the last public comment period that ended in June RCRC submitted two comprehensive comment letters outlining the adverse effects the proposal on member counties. The current regulatory package can be accessed on the BOFs Proposed Rule Packages webpage. Please contact Tracy Rhine for further information.
