BRUSH CLEARANCE AND MAINTAINING DEFENSIBLE SPACE
Here are some answers to frequently asked homeowners questions regarding best practices to make their homes safer.

What is meant by defensible space and is more space better?
Defensible space refers to that area between a house and an oncoming wildfire where the vegetation has been modified to reduce the wildfire threat and which provides an opportunity for fire fighters to defend the house.

California state law requires 100 feet of clearance around a home - LAFD requires 200 feet of clearance. Through proper management of this defensible space, research has shown that property has a better chance of surviving a wildfire and the lives of firefighters can be saved.

Many people think more space is better but recent scientific research seems to indicate that distances larger than 100 feet do not provide additional protection. Embers can travel as far as five miles ahead of the active front of a wildfire and land on flammable roofs or in other flammable objects – as a result, the emphasis is now on home hardening and effective treatment closer to structures.

METRO SEPULVEDA PLANNERS CAUTIONED
BY NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL
 
The Board of Directors of the Bel Air Beverly Crest Neighborhood Council has urged the Metro Sepulveda planners to use increased caution in developing their plans for high speed public rapid transportation through the Sepulveda Pass.
 
Traffic Committee Conclusion
Given the huge cost of the proposed project and capacity of the 405 Freeway, the same money spent immediately on low/zero emission buses that connect through the Sepulveda Pass is likely to be a far more cost effective and climate-smart alternative. One project alternative should include expansion of the bus system using express lanes on the 405 instead of a rail project.

The Project alternatives conspicuously lack an underground alternative that uses the existing transit corridor and property under the 405 Freeway

Other committee comments were:
 
Metro Study Area Too Small
“The study area defined for the Project is too small. Impacts to any canyon road in terms of traffic (e.g., during construction) have spillover effects that extend several canyons over because of the few north-south routes through the hills. The study area should be extended eastward to at least include through Franklin Canyon.

Save the Date: Scoping Meetings - December & January
 
Metro is beginning the environmental review phase for the Sepulveda Transit Corridor project, which would provide a high-quality transit service between the Valley and the Westside. As part of the project’s environmental process, a formal public comment period will be initiated on November 30, 2021 and will run through February 11, 2022. During this period, we encourage you to submit your thoughts and comments about the alternatives, as well as identify issues that may need to be addressed in the environmental review. Please stay tuned for additional information on the proposed project alternatives as we release the Notice of Preparation on November 30th.
 
Metro invites you to join us at any of the three upcoming virtual scoping meetings to stay informed and provide feedback. Each meeting will feature the same information.
