What changes to state or local land use planning programs could minimize wildfire risk?

This is the question the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development* (DLCD) wants to answer. We want to hear from you!
The work is guided by Senate Bill 762, Oregon's first comprehensive wildfire preparedness and resiliency bill. Many state agencies are responsible for implementing SB 762. The bill aims to:
  • Minimize loss of life and property
  • Protect the lives of firefighters
  • Protect and manage Oregon's forest assets
  • Protect communities and development at risk from the effects of wildfire
Feedback from this survey, virtual community meetings, an online open house and a stakeholder group will be used to inform recommendations to the State Wildfire Programs Advisory Council and Oregon Legislature by October 1, 2022.
