On Thursday, February 25th, the City of Ashland will host an open house to collect feedback and comments about an upcoming ordinance: Development Standards for Wildfire Lands. This ordinance will expand the current wildfire lands area to encompass the entire city limits. The ordinance will kick in when new construction, additions over 200 square feet and reroofing over 50% are occurring. This is an opportunity to talk one-on-one with the City Planning Department and Ashland Fire & Rescue and give input. The meeting will be held at the Ashland Public Library in the Gresham Room, Thursday, February 25, from 5:00PM-7:00PM.
