• Non-native pine, eucalyptus, cypress, cotoneasters, and broom near the park boundary and adjacent to residential communities will be
    removed.
  • Removal of non-native trees and shrubs will improve grassland habitat for native plant species such as Hickman’s cinquefoil which is listed as endangered under the federal Endangered Species Act.
  • Large trees to be removed will be flagged 1-2 weeks prior to the start of the project.
  • Fuel reduction efforts will lower the wildfire hazard on park land and provide safer access for firefighters during suppression actions if a wildfire should occur.
  • Trees will be climbed up to remove “ladder fuels” so lower branches will not carry fire from the ground into treetops. Chipping of tree material will be done on-site and dispersed throughout the area.
  • Visitors may experience temporary closures or detours while the fuel reduction work is being performed. Signs will be posted informing visitors which trails are closed.

How much in higher water bills would the public be willing to pay for greater public access?
55% of respondents are willing to pay $1 or more per month for water in order to fund additional water treatment and protective services for greater public access. (Section 2.10)
In the POSR, the water users reported a willingness to pay $1 per month or more in order to secure the SFPUC watersheds on either side of San Francisco Bay. Advancements in fuel management technologies, make this goal attainable for $10. per month .
Our Fire Safe Council proposes a Public / Private Partnership with SFPUC that will fund the services needed to manage our watersheds and prevent catastrophic complex wildfires in perpetuity. For $10/month, the 2.7 million Bar Area water users accounts can accomplish this goal together and prevent the inevitable San Francisco Peninsula Watershed Perfect FireStorm.
