Hello again, fellow Creekers.
Sam Seay, public information officer for Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Department, has announced currently fuel reduction projects are being conducted at the Creekside Properties, Whispering Hope Ranch, R-C Scout Camp, Tonto Rim Christian Camp and Mountain Meadows Christian Camp.
These projects are part of the CKFD Shaded Fuel Break Extension Project and are meant to extend the U.S. Forest Service’s shaded fuel break that was cut around the communities. These projects are made possible through a grant program and will continue until all of the areas around the communities are thinned to help prevent destruction from wildfires. The grant is currently being utilized to thin the largest properties and the next grant will be used to continue with large area thinning.
CKFD will host a meeting to present the future grant programs to the homeowners associations in the near future. Once the meeting is scheduled notices will be e-mailed and announced in the Roundup.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the celebration of Earth Day and the annual CCHA Easter egg hunt last weekend. Both events were a success and everyone had a great time.
As always, I do need help with content and stories.
