Community Meetings Go Virtual
With the Covid-19 pandemic on-going, the RCDs have turned to online platforms to host community meetings. Today, we were delighted to host two meetings: one with the Sierra Springs community regarding wildfire protection grants from Fire Adapted 50 and the Stevens’ Authority, and one with the Mt. Aukum community regarding the Tahoe Central Sierra Initiative Vegetation Management Plan. While we missed being able to gather in person “town hall” style, we were grateful to share time and virtual space with our community partners.
Community meetings are an essential part of planning and implementating all of the RCDs’ wildfire fuels reductions projects. They provide a forum for residents to share valuable input, helping to ensure that the RCDs design the most effective projects to meet the community’s needs. They also serve to inform the community of project goals and logistics, as well as answer any lingering questions. We look forward to hosting more meetings with El Dorado County communities soon.
