Upcountry Residents to Meet to Discuss the Impact of Wildfires
The Kula Community Association will host a facilitated community conversation on the recent upcountry wildfires, both the impact and a way forward, for KCA members and Upcountry residents at the Kula Community Center on October 18th, 2023 at 6:00pm. Unlike our traditional general membership format of a panel of speakers, this will be a facilitated meeting where we will talk story and begin community problem solving through rounds of questions and small group discussions.
Attendees will have an opportunity to process the impacts of the fire on our community while focusing on three key questions:
- What are the opportunities and dilemmas we faced during the Upcountry wildfires and during the immediate and ongoing recovery efforts?
- What would make the most difference to the future fire and water safety of Upcountry?
- What would it take to create change on how we manage fire and water safety in Upcountry?
The goal of this meeting is to collectively begin to create a path towards a fire and water resilient Upcountry community. As the facilitator, KCA will gather participant input and organize our needs into an Upcountry Fire and Water Resiliency Plan.
Seating is limited. Please wear a mask as Covid and flu season is upon us.
