Chetco Bar Fire Recovery Points of Interest and Concern
As the fire suppression activity winds down and is wrapped up, attention is turned to rehab and recovery. Of immediate interest to CCPLA is continued access, so here are some points to consider and share.

  • Roadways or bridges damaged by the fire or the suppression activities be immediately brought back to a condition equal to or better than they were before.
  • Any roads opened up to support the suppression effort should be left open, regardless of their status in the Travel Management Plan. Spending taxpayer dollars to tank trap or otherwise physically close roads needed in this fire, as well as other fires, past and future, would seem contrary to the interest of the citizens of Curry County, and that of the Forest Service as well. In the past, roads have been blocked after fires were suppressed, citing safety concerns, but with the backlog of well-known and long identified roadside hazards that have not been dealt with by the Forest Service this seems a weak justification, especially since travel routes within the fire area should have already had danger trees addressed.

  • CCPLA supports timely timber salvage in the Chetco Bar fire area.
  • Consider minimal fireline rehab for those historic lines likely to be needed again in the future.
  • Consider fire suppression needs when planning FS road maintenance, and approving other opportunities for road work, such as through groups like CCPLA.

CCPLA Members are a growing group of citizens with the shared purpose of retaining public land access for current and future generations. The CCPLA is a member based organization and is dependent on our membership, both in a practical sense, as your annual fee funds our basic operating expenses, such as insurance, office supplies, outreach materials and various fees, but also in a physical sense to work on our field projects. We could not exist without your support. Thank you CCPLA Members for your support, involvement and desire to keep this wonderful place we live accessible for everyone to enjoy.Contact us to find out how you can support the CCPLA and BECOME A MEMBER.
