Citizens Planning Academy, Oct. 5: Stephen Miller on wildfire planning

Published by Volunteer on

Subject: Planning for Wildfire in the Wildland-Urban Interface
When: Wed. Oct. 5 from 6 – 7:30pm
Where: Idaho Law & Justice Learning Center, 514 W. Jefferson Street, Room 325

UI law professor Stephen R. Miller will discuss the new publication Planning for Wildfire in the Wildland-Urban Interface: A Resource Guide for Idaho Communities, which was researched and compiled along with colleagues at the University of Idaho’s Bioregional Planning Program, Boise State University’s Public Policy Research Center, the Idaho Department of Lands and nationally recognized wildfire consultants.

The guide presents the process of planning for wildfire as a four-step process that empowers local communities. It highlights a variety of solutions already in place throughout Idaho, as well as techniques used throughout the West that may be appropriate here, too. This session should be of particular interest to neighborhoods and residents with properties in the foothills and areas that interface with grasslands.

Where: UI College of Law’s Boise location in the Idaho Law Learning Center (514 W. Jefferson Street, Room 325). Please use the eastern entrance. Parking is available behind the building on the eastern side in the spots marked “visitor.”

The C.P.A. is a collaboration of Idaho Smart Growth and the University of Idaho College of Law in Boise. Monthly sessions are designed to help citizens become effective advocates on a wide range of planning topics. Programs are free and open to all.
