Last updated 3/27/2024 at 2:35pm

The third in a series of the “Okanogan County Community Wildfire Protection Plan” meetings will be held Wednesday evening, March 27, from 5-7 p.m., at the Lucy Covington Government Center, 21 Colville Street, Nespelem, the headquarters of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation.

Any Okanogan County residents can attend the meeting to be able to “engage with CWPP partners and discuss community-level wildfire concerns and values at risk,” an agenda for the meeting states. “We will share the goals and action steps for updating the CWPP, map community values, and gather comments and project action ideas.”

The meeting, organized by the Okanogan Conservation District, is intended to capture “the collaborative process, values, and priorities of stakeholders who are working to prepare for wildfire. This process involves gathering community input, assessing data, and local decision making to prioritize and implement wildfire mitigation actions that can occur within 5-10 years, the agenda says.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
