Fire Advisory Committee Meeting

Nevada City Fire Advisory Committee Meeting
September 15th at 3:00 pm (Zoom)

Information from Erin Minett, Council Member, City of Nevada City:

There will be a presentation from the consultants who are working on the Nevada City safety element, which hasn’t been updated since 1989.

SURVEY: There is Nevada City Safety Questionnaire, which they would like to get out to as many people as possible. The Survey will be available until September 24, 2021. Feel free to send the link it to anyone you may know! 

The focus is climate change and wildfires. They need as much public input – especially from the firewise groups – as possible. This will allow them to change ordinances, apply for grants for fire mitigation and hopefully move forward on making Nevada City a safer place to live.

If you would like to attend the meeting on September 15, please email Erin Minett ( and she will send you a Zoom link.

Gigabit Internet Option Coming Soon

Spiral Fiber is building a new all-underground 100% fiber optic gigabit internet network in our neighborhoods. Later this year, Spiral begins building projects in the 95959 zip code, and will continue into the 95975, 95946, and 95949 areas.

An all-underground fiber optic internet network has been designed and will be constructed, which will make it safe from wildfires, high winds, and heavy snow. The network is being built with redundant back-up power systems, so it will be 100% up and running throughout PSPS events and power outages.

At the start, one gigabit per second (Gbps) symmetrical download and upload internet access will be available. However, the network will be 10 Gbps ready.
