Nevada Division of Forestry Seeks Public Comment

December 19 2023

The Nevada Division of Forestry is proposing to repeal regulations pertaining to Chapter 472 of the Nevada Admistrative Code (NAC). The Division will host a workshop seeking public comment on the proposed action.

The purpose of the workshop is to solicit oral and/or written comments from interested persons on repealing regulations for which the State Forester Firewarden no longer has jurisdictional responsibility in accordance with Nevada Revised Statute. In 2021, the Legislature passed Senate Bill 33 which removed the State Forester Firewarden authority to enforce regulations relating to the reduction of brush, dense undergrowth, and other vegetation around and adjacent to a structure that is in a fire-hazardous forested area.

Persons wishing to make oral comment on the proposed regulation of the Division are encouraged to participate in the scheduled workshop, either in person or via Microsoft Teams. Persons wishing to submit written testimony or documentary evidence may submit the material by emailing or by mailing to the following address: Nevada Division of Forestry, 901 S. Stewart Street Ste. 1001, Carson City, NV 89701.

Meeting Details

  • Date: Tuesday, December 19, 2023
  • Time: 9:30 AM
  • Location:  Richard Bryan Building, 901 S. Stewart St. (Bonnie Conference Room, 1st Floor).
