2 Overall Goal The goal of the Griffith Park Fire Recovery Plan Task Force is to develop a fire recovery plan for Griffith Park that is science- and data-based. The Recovery Plan will include fire damage and erosion control mitigation measures, as well as restoration elements that will be designed and implemented based on the results of professional assessments of damage, and potential environmental and public safety hazards resulting from the fire. The recovery planning process will involve technical experts from various government agencies and community groups, and include soliciting advice and comments from the various parks advocacy groups, the local neighborhood associations and Neighborhood Councils.

3 Implementation of Fire Recovery Planning Process First Steps… Assembly of Working Teams of Technical Experts on a Griffith Fire Recovery Plan Task Force Assembly of Working Teams of Technical Experts on a Griffith Fire Recovery Plan Task Force Objectives of Collaboration: Reduce Duplication of Efforts Reduce Duplication of Efforts Synchronized Efforts Synchronized Efforts Cost-Efficiency Cost-Efficiency Timeliness Timeliness Minimization of Environmental Damage Minimization of Environmental Damage Standardization of Data Collection Methods Standardization of Data Collection Methods Sharing of Resources Sharing of Resources
