On Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at the 2017 SDPA/WP Conference in Spearfish, SD we will be offering a pre-conference session presented by Community Planning Assistance for Wildfire for $50.
This one-day training taking an in-depth look at how wildfires are affecting western communities and which planning and regulatory tools can reduce the increasing impacts from wildfires. Planning tools for wildfire mitigation will cover a range of scales, including buildings, lots, subdivisions and communities. Case studies will draw from several western communities, and show how to leverage the effectiveness of different tools—such as the Comprehensive Plan, Development Code, and Community Wildfire Protection Plan—to reduce wildfire risk.
Established in 2015 by Headwaters Economics and Wildfire Planning International, Community Planning Assistance for Wildfire (CPAW) works with communities to reduce wildfire risks through improved land use planning. CPAW is a grant-funded program providing communities with professional assistance from foresters, planners, economists and wildfire risk modelers to integrate wildfire mitigation into the development planning process.
