The RAC met this Morning. Although the reporter did not attend the whole
conversation, luckily this exchange was heard.
County Supervisor Lee Adams asked why the permanent communities in
Sierra County such as Downieville, Goodyears Bar and Sierra City were
not getting the same attention the summer home tracts were. After much
discussion and a round and round conversation as to which came first
the community responsibility or the USFS when national lands came
right up to the edge of the property, Genese Froelich said there was a
need for a "community wildfire protection plan" and they were working
on it. Adams said he had brought this up a year ago and he was
frustrated there has been no action.
RAC committee member, Linda Frost asked who the contact for the plan
was and after another round of talk about how this community action
plan was in the works, asked again "but who is the contact person?"
She was referred to the CalFire website. Jim Johnston came to the
conclusion that "if he wanted to buy a safe home in Sierra County, it
should be in a summer home tract".

The group then moved on to the issue of noxious weed removal projects
in the Sierra Valley.
