The last public meeting about Jackson and Josephine County land classification is being held by the Oregon Department of Forestry on Wednesday night.
Following the virtual meeting, a virtual public hearing will take place. ODF says it uses forest classification to determine which land is considered timber or grazing.
It says classified lands are assigned a fire patrol assessment, which pays for the cost of wildfire protection.
The Department of Forestry says anyone whose land could be affected has already received a letter of notification.
