FEMA Work to Begin this Summer
Claremont Canyon area residents can breathe a bit easier knowing that work by two of the three agencies that received fire safety grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will begin this summer (after nesting season ends).
The Conservancy was pleased to prepare a lengthy letter to UC in support of its plan amendment.
Note that once the work gets underway you will see vacant, bare land in places where the trees were removed. Please be patient as native trees, shrubs and grassland will eventually grow in and the land will be both beautiful and firesafe. Take a look across the canyon from Signpost 29 and you will see what grew in after that area was treated.
