Per today’s Herald:
“Tuesday’s board meeting went into early evening largely because of a contentious hearing on the proposed Monterey County Community Wildfire Protection Plan.
That 2½-hour session included impassioned testimony from Big Sur residents who lived through the Basin Complex Fire in 2008, as well as highly critical comments about the plan from a series of environmental organizations, including the Sierra Club.
The board directed staff to work with the various groups to provide a road map for making wilderness neighborhoods fire-safe.
Staff will ask the groups to work out major areas of disagreement. The board plans to revisit the proposed plan Nov. 9.”
I heard from 2 individuals who either were there or watched/listened online, and both gave reports from completely different perspectives that were similar to that related by the Herald. Both expressed frustration, but for very different reasons. So, next up – the November 9th meeting.
Tomorrow, I have some weather reports to post.
