North Quincy Fire Resiliency Project public meeting scheduled Oct. 13

A public meeting to discuss the North Quincy Wildfire Resiliency Project will be held Thursday, Oct. 13 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Quincy Library, located at 445 Jackson St. in Quincy.

The Feather River Resource Conservation District and the Plumas National Forest Mount Hough Ranger District are holding the meeting to discuss the proposed fuel reduction and forest resiliency project.

The project area includes approximately 9,000 acres of National Forest System lands north of American Valley, from Snake Lake to Chandler Road.  Most of the project is within the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) defense zone and is intended to improve forest health and reduce hazardous fuels through forest thinning and prescribed fire.

Employees from the Feather River Resource Conservation District and the Plumas National Forest will be available at the meeting to discuss the project, answer questions and accept comments.

Project comments are being accepted through Nov. 7.  They can be emailed to Monika Richardson at [email protected] or mailed to Feather River Resource Conservation District, P.O. Box 3562, Quincy, CA 95971, ATTN: Monika Richardson.

A public fieldtrip to discuss the project is being planned in November.  More information about that trip will be coming soon.
