Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

With the increased severity and frequency of wildfires in California, community wildfire planning is increasingly important to help prepare for and adapt to wildfire. Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs) are a tool to help reduce the severity and impact of wildfires and increase community resilience. A CWPP is being developed for the Cities of Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea and Pacific Grove (Plan Area). The CWPP is being developed with input and direction from stakeholders, agency representatives, and community members.

Plan area
The plan area encompasses the cities of Monterey, Pacific Grove, and Carmel-by-the-Sea. The Plan Area has an estimated population of 49,000 (U.S. Census 2020). The majority of people reside in the City of Monterey with an estimated population of 30,218 people, compared to 3,220 people in Carmel-by-the-Sea and 15,090 people in Pacific Grove.

Get involved!
To ensure that the CWPP reflects the priorities and concerns of the local community, the project team will be conducting a three-tier public outreach approach including a public survey, a stakeholder working group, and community workshops.
