This is a Boulder County ballot initiative that proposes to create a Mountain Forest Improvement District as a recommendation of the Citizen Advisory Team concerning the Community Wildfire Protection Plan. This would be the entity that would “plan and implement forest improvement projects in wild land-urban interface areas, including projects to reduce hazardous fuels and protect communities.”
This would definitely affect Ward. Please download the text of the resolution and plan to vote on November 1, 2011.
The mountain leaders group will be finding out more and I’ll update this post when more info becomes available.
