Cal VTP & PWP in Practice: Covell Ranch Forest Health Fuels Reduction
October 13, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join the Fuels and Vegetation Education team for a webinar exploring the planning and permitting pathways of a highly successful project. Experts Steve Auten and Andy Johnson will present about their experiences with the Covell Ranch Forest Health Fuels Reduction project in Cambria, California. They’ll cover the Project Specific Analysis (PSA) for the California Vegetation Treatment Program (CalVTP) and the Public Works Plan (PWP), a permitting pathway in the Coastal Zone.
Navigating the development of a Project Specific Analysis (PSA) for the California Vegetation Treatment Program (CalVTP) requires a deep dive into a newly created regulatory world. Many resource professionals are recognizing quickly that creating a solid project vision and description that fits within the Standard Project Requirements (SPR) of the Cal VTP is the first and most important step.
A Public Works Plan (PWP) is a permitting pathway allowing the use of the new California-Vegetation Treatment Program (CalVTP), Programmatic Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) for proactive wildfire prevention treatments within the coastal zone. The PWP is a 10-year agreement with structural elements developed within the framework of the California Coastal Commission’s (CCC) guidelines for projects occurring in the coastal zone.
