Safety & Security UpdateFire Mitigation Scheduled
This December, the HOA will perform fire mitigation projects along Orchard Valley Road. We will remove dead vegetation and eliminate ladder fuels in the open space on the north side of Orchard Valley Road. This will also provide some erosion control using the logs in that area. The project is being lead by CSFD Fire Captain Steve Garcia, who also serves as a Peregrine HOA Board Member at Large.These projects represent an increased focus on fire mitigation in the Peregrine community. Based on survey responses of our residents, fire mitigation is a top priority for the Board. The HOA Board has allocated $10,000 for fire mitigation this year and coordinated two free residential chipping opportunities in 2021. If you are interested in learning more about fire mitigation on your property, the CSFD offers a fire mitigation program to meet with you and make suggestions on how to reduce the chance of fire on your property. For more information about this opportunity, contact CSFD Wildfire Mitigation at (719) 385-7493.
