Confused about an Annual Weed Clearance Notice?

Post Date:03/15/2017 9:45 AM

There have been questions regarding the recent annual Weed Clearance notice provided by Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) to many residents of the City. Annually, LACoFD identifies properties that lie adjacent to “wildlands” such as canyons, parklands, other natural areas or unimproved property. LACoFD provides this list of properties to the City, providing the opportunity to propertyowners who feel their property should not be on the list to have their property removed at a noticed public hearing.

A request to remove the property from the list does not automatically remove it from the list. Properties are generally only removed from the list if the adjacent property no longer contributes to fire danger, i.e. is no longer natural or unimproved. A primary purpose of the notice is that, once alerted to the fire danger, property owners will clear flammable vegetation or other combustible materials before the fire season begins. LACoFD will inspect those properties on the list in June.

Should LACoFD find any properties not complying with clearance requirements, they will return to the City for authorization to fine for any violations found through a public hearing process in the July timeframe.
