The Montecito Fire Protection District needs your input for development of the Montecito Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). Our intent is to bring together diverse local interests to identify mutual concerns and locally derived solutions for protecting life, homes, businesses, community infrastructure, and historical resources while balancing the need for natural resource sustainability. All stakeholders including property-owners, residents, local agencies, organizations, associations, business-owners, community leaders, and interested publics are encouraged to attend this workshop.

Stakeholder input is critical to the success in the development of our CWPP. This workshop will offer a positive, solution-oriented environment in which to address the wildfire threat to our community.
