WPI will lead a pre-conference training at the upcoming Western Planner conference in Great Falls, MT (August 9-12, 2016). This full-day training will offer an in-depth look at how wildfires are affecting the West and which planning and regulatory tools can reduce their impacts at different scales. Case studies will come from several western jurisdictions, highlighting how to best integrate wildfire into the comprehensive plan and development code. This interactive training is a must for anyone who wants a better understanding of the trends and risks associated with development in wildfire-prone areas and the role that planning can play in wildfire mitigation. CM credit will be available for this and all sessions.
