· The committee had 3 Zoom meetings jointly with the RLA Roads Committee with representatives of Larimer County Emergency Management and other organizations regarding fire restoration. They have covered debris removal, sand bagging and reseeding, and resources available to us. Gene McClean is the RLA point of contact.
· There was a zoom Town Hall meeting on May 24 with these representatives outlineing the activities and plans.
· Here's the link for the electronic right of entry form. https://tinyurl.com/ROEformforCPF You should complete and submit this form soon in order to tell crews what is or is not permitted on your property. It is in everyone’s interest if we can get close to 100% submission.
· A moderate rainfall of 0.5”/hr could result in the creeks rising to 4 times their current level. Much of the upslope burn area has its lost water retention property potentially resulting in flash floods.
· ~600 free sandbags have been distributed around culverts and along roadways for owners’ use. Wattles (cylindrical straw bales seen along highways) will be available around June 15.
· Three volunteer days were held for debris clean up on Miller Fork and Black Creek.
· A volunteer workday will be held every fourth Saturday June through September since these have proven quite effective.
· There was a severe washout on Black Creek Road following the big snowfall in March and warm weather. This was mainly caused by frozen water in the culverts slowing the water flow and under sized culverts up the Black creek past the Retreat boundary.
· This report is to let those that do not live in the fire burn area realize how much is being done to help restore our land and trying to minimize any potential flooding that we could experience for the next five years.
