BLM OR/WA Eugene Wildland Urban Interface and Community Fire Assistance


In 2005, a variety of partners, including the BLM, produced the Lane County Wildfire Protection Plan, which identified a variety of actions to reduce the risk of wildfire within Lane County. To accomplish these objectives within and adjacent to the City of Eugene, the City of Eugene and Oregon Department of Forestry developed and proposed the South Ridgeline Fire Fuel Reduction Project in 2011 to multiple federal agencies. Objectives: Implement landscape-scale fuels reduction treatments to reduce the risk of damaging wildfires in the Wildland Urban Interface of the South Hills of Eugene and the West Eugene Wetlands to create a more fire resilient landscape. Implement and maintain greater coordination among local, state, and federal land management agencies and private landowners to effectively prioritize hazardous fuels treatments, and provide the framework for reducing the risks and consequences of wildland fire to the community. Promote public awareness of wildfire hazard, engage participation, and enhance partnerships through education, outreach and coordination of diverse and representative groups of the City of Eugene's population.
