Central Marin Zone Evacuation Route Core Project

Example of evacuation route clearing

This project includes vegetation management adjacent to roads to enhance ingress and egress of emergency vehicles and residents during a wildfire emergency along evacuation routes and other roadways in Novato. Project activities target invasive vegetation, dead and down woody debris, and other fire hazardous vegetation while seeking to retain healthy native plant communities. Project will occur in the Greater Ross Valley area in the communities of Fairfax, San Anselmo, Sleepy Hollow, Ross, Kentfield, Greenbrae, Larkspur, Corte Madera, and adjacent unincorporated areas. There are approximately 16,000 habitable structures in the designated wildland urban interface (WUI) areas of these communities. This is a collaborative project of the Greater Ross Valley Fire Agencies (Marin County Fire Department, Ross Valley Fire Department, Kentfield Fire Protection District, and Central Marin Fire Department). Environmental compliance for this project is complete and implementation/maintenance is ongoing.
