APPLICANT:  County of San Diego

PROJECT/CASE NUMBERS: Updates to Fire Safety Guidelines and Standards

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: On September 28, 2022 (6), the County Board of Supervisors (Board) adopted the revised Transportation Study Guidelines for Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) and directed staff to return to the Board within four months with focused updates to the Fire Guidelines to identify specific requirements for projects located within fire zones in the unincorporated areas, including the mandatory requirement for a Fire Protection Plan, and require that any exceptions to the State Fire Code, as adopted by the County, be mitigated through an alternative that has the same practical effect. As part of this effort, this proposal is to update County's California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Wildfire Guidelines and Fire Protection Guidelines (Fire Guidelines), Fire Protection Plan requirements, and local fire code. This is a request for the Board to consider adoption of the proposed updates to the Fire Guidelines.

LOCATION: The project is located within the unincorporated area of San Diego County, which consists of 3,570 square miles in the southwestern corner of the State of California.

ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS: The adoption of the resolution for the proposed Fire Guidelines is not a "project" as defined in the Public Resources Code section 21065 and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines section 15378 and is therefore not subject to CEQA pursuant to CEQA Guidelines section 15060(c)(3).

GENERAL INFORMATION: This public hearing is accessible to individuals with disabilities. If interpreter services for the hearing impaired are needed, please call the Americans With Disabilities Coordinator at (619) 531-5205 or California Relay Service, if notifying by TDD, no later than seven days prior to the date of the hearing.
