Community wildfire planning meetings set
Planning meetings for nine community groupings on the Kenai Peninsula are being held this week. Ecology and Environment Inc., on behalf of the Kenai Peninsula Borough, is hosting its second round of community meetings to continue developing individual community wildfire protection plans.
The meetings provide an opportunity for community-based forest planning and prioritization under the Healthy Forests Restoration Act. The plans may address issues such as wildfire response, hazard mitigation, community preparedness and structure protection. All meetings are open to the public.
Meetings will be held at the following locations and times: for the Ninilchik, Clam Gulch and Ninilchik area at 1 p.m. today at the Ninilchik Senior Citizens Center; for the Anchor Point, Happy Valley and Nikolaevsk area at 7 p.m. today at the Anchor River Inn; for the Moose Pass, Crown Point and Primrose areas at 7 p.m. Thursday at Moose Pass Elementary; for the Fritz Creek, Fox River and East End Road areas at 3 p.m. Friday at the McNeil Canyon School; and for the Homer, Diamond Ridge and Kachemak areas at 7 p.m. Friday in the city of Homer council chambers.
