At the November 1st, 2022, Chico City Council meeting, Fire Chief Steve Standridge helped present the City’s new Community Wildfire Protection Plan. Several times, Valley’s Edge was highlighted as a project that addresses fire safety correctly, not only for the planned community but also for the entirety of the city.
“Valley’s Edge has done a remarkable job of taking our feedback and building [fire protection access] access into their plans,” Standridge said. “Specifically, north-south access which we struggle with. For example, in Canyon Oaks, it makes it very difficult for us to put resources deep into that community and then relocate them to other more critical areas.”
