On Friday, April 21st at 6 p.m. at the Greenwater Community Center, the Pierce County Conservation District spokesman will explain the Firewise Program to the community. Smokey Bear will be present and snacks will be provided. There will also be a showing of the film ‘Megafires’.
Pierce County, through the Firewise Program, is offering to perform a free wildfire audit of your home to assess wildfire risk and suggest measures you can take to mitigate those risks. They are also offering a chipper service (with operators) to homeowners. If you would like to take advantage of this services, you can sign up at the April 21st presentation or at www.piercecd.org
In May and June of 2017, CVHA will be partnering with Pierce County Conservation District Firewise and Habitat Improvement program. CVHA priority will be the removal of the Scotch Broom in the Commons Area between CV1 and CV2. Plans call for volunteers from Crystal Village and a Pierce County volunteer group(s) to remove the Scotch Broom. Since the goal is the long term removal of the Scotch Broom, an ecological approved herbicide may be applied by Pierce County. Since Pierce County is providing the spraying service, we can be assured that all rules and regulations pertaining to spraying in our Commons Area will be followed. The final stage of the project will be plantings of native vegetation by Pierce County in the common area.
The Board of Directors has approved Jan Kobak to coordinate the Common Area project for CVHA. She will keep the Board informed as the project timeline develops and let the Board know if any approval or action is needed for any portion of the project. Once the final scope of the project is known the Board will conduct a review before we proceed with the Scotch Broom removal program.

Updates will be posted on the Blog as to the project develops.
