We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

In 2003, Congress passed the Healthy Forest Restoration Act encouraging communities to develop Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP) to guide wildfire mitigation efforts on both federal and nonfederal lands. This article provides a case study of the development and implementation of a CWPP for the at-risk communities of the Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona. This case study reveals a past history of collaboration to address the issue of wildfire along with high levels of cooperation among all levels of government and community stakeholders. The communities of the Sitgreaves National Forest successfully established an inclusive and multijurisdictional planning process and effective procedures for intergovernmental cooperation to mitigate the wildfire risk. The Sitgreaves CWPP provides an excellent example of an effective community-based planning effort to mitigate the wildfire threat.
