The county’s goal is to provide the best protection for those living in and near wildland-urban interfaces where private and public lands intersect. This CWPP expands risk assessment to include middle ground landscapes beyond the homes to restore forest resiliency on both sides of the public/private divide. It is also the intent of this plan to identify the roles and responsibilities of all those that represent Wallowa County including, but not limited to, county, state, and federal agencies, cooperators, and private land owners. It is the county’s desire to advance in wildfire risk mitigation while focusing on three key overall goals of fire-adapted communities, resilient landscapes, and appropriate wildfire response.
