QUINCY, Calif. – A public meeting to discuss the North Quincy Wildfire Resiliency Project will be held Thursday, October 13 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Quincy Public Library, located at 445 Jackson St. in Quincy.
The meeting is being held by the Feather River Resource Conservation District and the Plumas National Forest Mount Hough Ranger District to discuss the proposed fuel reduction and forest resiliency project.
