Save the Date – Paved Road Fuel Reduction Program For June 2022 (Mill Valley)

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 June 12–August 6, 2022 in Mill Valley (Block F, City of Mill Valley):
Alvarado Avenue
Del Casa Drive
Elaine Avenue
Fairway Drive
Manor Drive
Marlin Avenue
Rowan Way
Heather Way
Magdalena Court
Sarah Drive
Sheridan Court
Tartan Road
Vista Linda Drive

The following streets are scheduled for vegetation maintenance starting on or around June 26–July 23, 2022 in Mill Valley (Zone 4, Block N):
Springside Way
Sunset Way
Woodside Avenue
Tennessee Avenue
Fern Way South
Morning Sun Avenue
Dolan Avenue

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 Jesse Figoni at 415-388-8182 x4471 or e-mail at: jfigoni@smfd.org.
