Get Ready for Wildfire

CalFireRemoveTrees“Bark beetles and drought are creating havoc in California’s forested areas. Together they are a deadly combination. Millions of trees have died and the devastation continues.”  This quote is from the CalFire website.  This is a fabulous website with a wealth of information related to the bark beetle and the risk of wildfire.  There is information about the bark beetle, maps showing tree mortality, information on dead tree removal, ways to prevent bark beetle infestations in healthy trees, seasonal actions you can take, and more!  The tree mortality maps were from surveys done in 2015, but new trees are dying daily, many reaching into higher elevations.

If you have dead or dying trees on your property please remove them.  We need to keep Fish Camp safe by reducing our risk of wildfires and promoting tree health.

Here is a link to the CalFire pages about the bark beetle.

Important Fish Camp Updates!

MeadowTransfer Station
– The Fish Camp Transfer Station will be open from 8:00 am – 10:00 am on Saturdays instead of Sundays beginning this Saturday, Jan. 31, 2015.

Specific Plan – Four meetings have been scheduled to “develop recommendations for establishing an objective limit to the allowed extensions for a Planned Development in Fish Camp.”  A subcommittee of the Fish Camp Advisory Council has been formed for this purpose, however, the public is welcome to attend and be a part of this subcommittee.  Mariposa County planning staff will be attending these meetings and will have information for the first meeting.  Meetings will begin at 10:00 am at Camp Green Meadows on the following dates:

Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015
Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015
Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015
Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015

All four meetings may not be necessary to form a recommendation.  The subcommittee’s recommendation will be considered by the Fish Camp Advisory Council, possibly at their next meeting on April 18, 2015.  The Advisory Council may then recommend that the Board of Supervisors or Planning Commission begin amending the Fish Camp Specific Plan.  Unfortunately, the timing of these meetings may not fit into many of our schedules, but it is important that your voice be heard.  The town plan hasn’t been updated in many years, this could be the beginning of several needed updates.  Constructive comments are welcome to this website and will be brought to the meetings.
