FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

BUTTE, MT June 13, 2023 – Butte-Silver Bow County is developing an updated Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) to evaluate and address the threat of wildfire throughout Silver Bow County. A CWPP is a planning document that helps local government, fire departments, private citizens, and other entities to plan for, respond to, and recover from wildfire events. The updated CWPP will help to secure grant funding for wildfire risk reduction projects, prioritize efforts across the landscape, and provide the community with recommendations and resources to reduce wildfire risk to their homes and property. As a part of this process, an updated Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) will be developed for Silver Bow County along with identification of priority areas and projects.

The CWPP process is driven by local stakeholders and community input, and Butte-Silver Bow wants and needs public input to develop a CWPP that reflects the unique needs and values of the community. Butte-Silver Bow will host a public meeting to provide the public with an opportunity to learn more about the CWPP purpose and process and provide feedback on the draft WUI and priority areas.

The public meeting will take place on June 27th from 5:30 pm-7:30 pm at the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) located at 3615 Wynne Ave. Butte, MT 59701. For those that cannot attend, meeting notes and materials will be posted to the BSB CWPP Story Map.
