New Business

Fire Mitigation
  • County and local representatives attended the meeting and spoke to a variety of fire mitigation related subjects in and around our neighborhoods and county.
  • Representatives included
    • John Chapman: CWPP (Community Wildfire Protection Plan) Coordinator
    • Kathleen Krebs: Clear Creek County, Office of Emergency Management, Director
      oem@co.clear-creek.co.us
    • Jane Anne Thomas: Clear Creek County, Office of Emergency Management, Deputy Director - Coordinator
      oem@co.clear-creek.co.us
    • Travis Griffin: Forester Serving Clear Creek, Jefferson, and Northern Park Counties
      Travis.Griffin@ColoState.EDU
  • A few of the points made (too many to capture in minutes)
    • Neighborhoods and HOAs should decide which areas/items within the CWPP should be their focus. (John Chapman)
    • Grants are available to help neighborhoods fund wildfire mitigation activities. (Travis Griffin)
    •  Possible areas for focus (HOA/neighborhoods should narrow to 2 or 3 ideas) from the CWPP include 
      • Defensible space, 
      • Property protection, 
      • Environment, 
      • Evacuation plans (and practice, practice, practice),
      • Cisterns,
      • Street signage, and
      • Much more.
    • The Forest Service can, for a fee, provide defensible space consultation (Travis Griffin); Note: it was mentioned at the meeting that Clear Creek County offers similar services at no charge (TrentHyatt - Senior Planner / Site Development Inspector).
    • Everyone in the neighborhood should sign up for the counties Code Red (e.g., Reverse 911 type service) programs:
  • Link to the Clear Creek County Office of Emergency Management: http://www.co.clear-creek.co.us/index.aspx?nid=97
  • Dave Gallaher provided information on a couple of home fire defense units.
Other
  • Section Boss Proposal - Dave will try to pull together by next meeting.
  • HOA Annual Trash Day/potluck/meeting - the county no longer offers the half price trash day therefore, the HOA will be unable to fund a trash day.  Instead, the HOA is still planning on having an annual potluck party in the afternoon.
  • The county is apparently no longer spraying York Gulch with what has come to be known as teriyaki sauce (the spray that helps hold down the dust and slow road degradation).  We are not sure why they have stopped.  If you'd like more information or wish to request the spray, please contact the county road and bridge.
  • Similar to last year, Dave is requesting allocations of the free road base from the county.

Old Business

  • Neighborhood areas should continue to spread the road base provided last year by the county.
  • There is still some thought that maybe HOA could get volunteers and paint donations together and paint the firehouse.
