Background: Senate Bill 762, passed in the 2021 legislative session and anticipated to be signed by Gov. Kate Brown, requires the Oregon Department of Forestry to develop and maintain a comprehensive statewide map of wildfire risk that includes wildland-urban interface boundaries and fire risk classes by June 30, 2022, in collaboration with Oregon State University, the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal, other state agencies, local governments, tribes, other public bodies and additional information sources. It requires that the map be publicly accessible and for ODF to provide technical assistance as needed.  

Meeting Recording: A post-meeting recording will be posted on the ODF YouTube channel. The ODF YouTube channel can be found at https://www.youtube.com/c/oregondepartmentofforestry
