Novato Zone Bahia HOA Defensible Space Project

Example of the Bahia area of Novato

This project will reduce hazardous fuels and improve defensible space between the Bahia HOA and City of Novato owned open space as well as along Bahia Drive to reduce wildfire intensity and rate of spread in the event of ignition. Project activities target non-native invasive vegetation, dead and down woody debris, and other fire hazardous vegetation while seeking to retain healthy native plant communities. This project includes approximately 39 acres and 395 structures. Environmental compliance for this project is complete and implementation/maintenance is ongoing.
