Brush clearance will be in Chute Canyon
and Choya Canyon areas

The City of Chula Vista and Urban Corps of San Diego County began conducting fire protection brush clearance in the Chute Canyon and Choya Canyon areas of Chula Vista on October 1. The project is made possible by a $200,000 grant from the California Fire Safe Council to the Urban Corps of San Diego County.

With fire season a year-round reality in California, residents are encouraged to be proactive in preparing for wildfires and have a plan in place should one occur. An important preventive measure includes maintaining a defensible space behind homes. Urban Corps will clear brush through February 14, 2020 (intermittently) between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday to Friday. Brush clearance activities will cover 44 acres.

Residents in the affected areas will receive door hangers announcing the brush clearance and defensible space brochures from the California Fire Safe Council. Where needed, the City will request access to the open space behind homes. Property will be kept free of damage and debris.
