Key topics from last meeting:

·        The committee then began classifying some lands on a 40 acre basis to provide an example of the process.
·        The committee also attempted some preliminary classification work by delineating the break between forestland and the predominately agricultural or more urbanized areas.
o   In GIS, this was done by drawing a line where the committee thought a logical break would be
o   The line-work was not classification, but a starting point for discussion when those areas are examined more closely with the respective fire chiefs

o   Areas focused on for this exercise included: McMinnville and Sheridan
