The FS Overlay corresponds to distinct geographic areas and the associated wildland fire hazard. The requirements applicable to the fire safety area are found in § 82.13.050 (General Development Standards).
The FS Overlay includes areas within the mountains, valley foothills, and desert region designated by the applicable Fire Authority as wildfire risk areas. It includes all the land generally characterized by areas varying from relatively flat to steep sloping terrain and with moderate to heavy fuel loading contributing to high fire hazard conditions. Present and future development within the FS Overlay is exposed to the impacts of wildland fires and other natural hazards primarily due to native fuel types, topography, and prevailing weather conditions such as Santa Ana winds. These factors contribute to the potential of extreme wildland fire behavior conditions.
