Both town councils will discuss a ban on new shake roofs and major renewals to existing shake roofs with the Woodside Fire Protection District fire marshal at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, in the Community Hall at 765 Portola Road in Portola Valley.
Town staff have invited roofers and insurance representatives to contribute to the discussion. An ignition-resistant slate roof costs an average of about $10,000 more than a wood shake roof, the report says. Fire Marshal Denise Enea will be available to discuss results in other communities that have banned wood shake roofs.
The public is invited.
