(SD)-Deadwood Chosen For Wildfire Risk Reduction Program
DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - Deadwood is among eight communities chosen for a national wildfire risk reduction program next year. The Community Planning Assistance for Wildfire program will help Deadwood create local planning measures to reduce the impact of wildfires.
City Planning and Zoning Administrator Bob Nelson Jr told the Black Hills Pioneer reports the program will create a team of consultants, including land use planners, foresters and risk mapping experts.
The services are provided at no cost, but are valued at between $30,000 and $40,000. Nelson says he's attending a training session next month in Boulder to kick off the program .
