“SEE CHANGE” – CALL for Socially Engaged Artists
Sanchez Art Center Announces:
Sanchez Art Center, Pacifica, CA, seeks socially engaged artists to create site-specific community engaged public art reflecting on sea level rise, to support the community to civilly engage in authentic conversations, and work collaboratively to meet the requirements for municipalities to develop adaptation strategies.

Neighborhood Chipping Program for Fire-Prone Communities in San Mateo County

LINK. The Chipper Program through Fire Safe San Mateo is a collaborative effort between Woodside Fire Protection District, CAL FIRE, Fire Safe San Mateo and South Skyline Fire Safe Council. The program provides no-cost chipping to select neighborhoods to assist homeowners in maintaining defensible space. Funds for this program are grant and local funding by program partners.

The FIRE SAFE San Mateo County chipping program is based on a “you cut, we chip” model. Home owners are responsible for cutting, gathering and piling vegetation from around their homes to a roadside location. FIRE SAFE San Mateo County will provide chipping crews who visit neighborhood-by-neighborhood to chip vegetation either back on site or for removal.


To keep the program running smoothly and safely, there a few easy tips for homeowners participating in this program.

Removing vegetation: Give yourself a few weekends to do vegetation maintenance around your yard.
Piling Vegetation: For this program, homeowners need to pile vegetation in a 10 ft wide, 10 ft long and 5 ft tall pile.
Chipping Schedule: Chipping is scheduled street by street for Spring and Fall. See below for details on when the chipper visits your neighborhood. Make sure to give yourself enough time to cut and pile your vegetation.
