Altamont Road in Los Altos Hills, California, represents a significant thoroughfare for the Los Altos Hills Community. Therefore, this road exists 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.
- May 16th – May 26th
Altamont Rd in Los Altos Hills, starting at the intersection of Moody Rd and Altamont Rd and heading northwest towards Page Mill Road. The project will conclude at the intersection of Altamont Rd and Page Mill Rd. The total length of road in the project area is 2.2 miles one way. Therefore, the treatment will be 4.4 miles, including both sides of the roads
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 roads. 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 evacuation 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:
