Moody and El Monte Road in Los Altos Hills, California, represents a significant thoroughfare for the Los Altos Hills Community. From Page Mill Road, Moody and El Monte serve as a continuous path to Highway 280. Therefore, these roads exist as egress in the case of fire. To secure this egress’s integrity, Los Altos Hills County Fire District and Santa Clara County Firesafe Council propose a roadside treatment of fuels.
Moody and El Monte Road, starting at the intersection of Moody and Page Mill Roads continuing east towards Highway 280, concluding at Stonebrook Drive. The total length of road in the project area is 3.5 miles one way. Therefore, the treatment will be 7 miles, including both sides of the road.
Goals for this project:
The goals of this project are to trim woody vegetation, prune trees, clear dead material and clear any hazard trees that may fall onto the road. This project will provide an effective evacuation route during a wildfire, improve visibility and travel safety and to reduce the risk of roadside fire ignition.
In order to increase the effectiveness of the escape route and to complete the work, we need community participation. To have the brush cleared along your parcel please sign and mail the RIGHT OF ENTRY PERMIT found below to:
