      More people are living and buildingi-3QFBGM5 homes at the edge of forested areas while management practices have historically excluded the important natural ecological role of fire, which has resulted in increasingly dense and fire-prone forests. As we have seen time and time again, wildfire can be catastrophic to people and property in the American West. In this webinar, we will address the concept of defensible space around homes and commercial areas and preventative measures to manage growth in the wildland-urban interface. We will also hear about Douglas County's effort to implement their Wildfire Hazard Overlay and Standards zoning ordinance.
