The project will focus on road edge clearing to create a fuel break and improve ingress and egress.

AFSC is currently in the planning stages of the Mitchell Mine Fuel Break. As part of the “Amador Fuels Reduction and Living in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI)” project the AFSC is currently preforming necessary environmental review of the Fuel Break plans. Once environmental compliance is completed the AFSC will have the ability to move forward with the project once funds to complete the groundwork are identified.
