Fire Mitigation Recommendations

Homestead recently had a Wildfire Hazard Assessment conducted by ERFPD. In an effort to create a Firewise community they gave us some recommendations including cutting tall grass, removing stressed, dying or diseased trees, moving firewood away from structures during summer and early fall, and creating defensible space around homes. Our staff will be clearing long grass and brush in some of our Open Space areas. Please call our DRC office at 970-926-1067 if you plan to cut long grass, make any changes to your landscaping or if you have any questions on the recommendations.
