FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Inyo County Seeks Public Input for the 2024 Inyo County Community  Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) 

Inyo County Office of Emergency Services (OES), in collaboration with SWCA Environmental Consultants, the  Whitebark Institute, and Wildland Fire Associates, is seeking public input for the 2024 Inyo County Community Wildfire  Protection Plan (CWPP). The review period is scheduled from March 7, 2024, through April 15, 2024. 

Inyo County OES, the Whitebark Institute, and SWCA will host a public meeting on April 8, 2024, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the Inyo County Office Building in Bishop located at 1360 N. Main St., Bishop CA 93514. This meeting will also  be offered virtually. Please check out the Ready Inyo website, Facebook page, or Instagram for the link to this  meeting. All County residents are welcomed and encouraged to attend and participate.

The 2024 Inyo County CWPP is a collaborative effort to enhance the safety and resilience of our community from  uncharacteristic wildfires. This plan aims to identify and address vulnerabilities while emphasizing the protection of  lives, property, and valued resources.

During this crucial public outreach phase, Inyo County OES seeks the active participation and engagement of Inyo  community members. We invite all community members (full and part-time residents, property owners, individuals in  the workforce) to review the draft CWPP and accompanying Story Map as well as the Community Risk Explorer (web  application) and provide invaluable feedback to ensure its effectiveness and alignment with the unique needs of our  varying communities.

The draft CWPP, Story Map, and Community Risk Explorer will be available for review and comment through April 15,  2024. To access these items and participate in the review process, interested parties can visit our dedicated website  https://inyo-county-cwpp-inyocounty.hub.arcgis.com/. On the website, you will find a comment submission form to  submit your valuable feedback.

We extend our sincere appreciation to the community members, organizations, and agencies involved in this  collaborative endeavor. Together, we will create a proactive path towards a more resilient, fire-adapted Inyo County.

For more information or to ask any questions, please contact Project Manager, Montiel Ayala, at  [email protected] or Assistant Project Manager, Lia Webb, at [email protected]. To contact the Inyo  County Wildfire Coordinator, Kristen Pfeiler, please email [email protected].

Funding for this project was provided in part by a grant from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection as part of  the California Climate Investments Program, through the California Fire Safe Council.
