[ARCHIVED] Save The Date - Paved Road Fuel Reduction Program For February 2022


With your continued support, we have removed more than 7,100 tons of flammable vegetation from Southern Marin and Mill Valley right of ways and private property. This has not only improved emergency response times, but it has also reduced the number of power outages during winter storms. The focus of the Vegetation Management Program in your neighborhood includes: 

• Pruning trees to maintain emergency vehicle access

• Removal of all flammable and encroaching vegetation from the roadsides and sidewalks

• The evaluation of designated parking spots and maintenance on all fire hydrants in the area.

• Any trees designated for removal will be marked with a red dot.


Please do not pile any vegetation on the roadside for pick up. This project is for street clearing only. 


The following streets are scheduled for vegetation maintenance starting on or around February, 6 2022 in Mill Valley:

  • Blithedale Terrace 
  • Corte Madera Avenue 
  • Cottage Avenue 
  • Eldridge Avenue 
  • King Street 
  • Marsh Drive 
  • West Blithedale Avenue


The following streets are scheduled for vegetation maintenance starting on or about February 6, 2022 in Strawberry:  

  • Century Drive 
  • Chapel Drive 
  • De Silva Island Drive 
  • Gilbert Drive 
  • Great Circle 
  • Green Lane 
  • Herring Drive 
  • Hodges Drive



If you have any questions regarding this program, concerns about specifically marked trees, or interest in scheduling a Chipper Day, which provides residents the chance to give the dangerous fire fuels they’ve removed from their yards a date with the chipper machine, please contact our Wildfire Mitigation Specialist Madison Mead at 415-388-8184 or e-mail at:
