Firewise Reduction Project
Posted on Jan 20th, 2023
HIP HIP HOORAY!  Funds have been approved by the DNR for the Firewise Perimeter/Evacuation Route Project.  Phase One on the west side will be done THIS SPRING!  Thank you to all those who have signed authorization forms.  Any property owner who has not signed a form, and whose property is in phase one, must sign by February 15th, 2023 to be included in phase one.  Fuel reduction will begin shortly after this date.  The work done can be tailored to the individual property owner, such as flagging trees the owner wants to keep.  If you have any questions you can call Ben Hartmann, Service Forester Southeast Region at 509-261-1961, or Dustin Mutch, Landowner Assistance, Service Forester at 509-859-6437.  Your Firewise Committee Members will also be happy to help. 

Property owners who have signed authorization forms for properties that are in phase two or phase three, are still included in those projects.  Phase two and three will proceed if enough property owners in those areas sign on.  Talk to your neighbors.  This is a good deal!  We encourage anyone who has not signed on to do so.  The project is a go!  The money is there!  Just say "Yes"!  Call Ben or Dustin if you have questions.  All work will be done by DNR approved contractors.  This work is free to the property owner.  Fuel reduction makes us all safer.  An authorization drop box is attached to Martin's porch, 215 E. Ponderosa, the first house on the north side after you turn off Pipeline to enter the park.  Or give your signed authorization form to a Firewise committee member.

Firewise Hours
Posted on Nov 16th, 2022
Firewise Volunteer hours needed. The hours that you spend on creating defensible space and decreasing fuels on your property count toward our Firewise community goals, along with our work parties, education days, and DNR projects. Please use the data entry forms section on this website to submit your hours worked on Firewising your property. These efforts may also help when we try to qualify for grants or projects to make our community more safe from wildfires. You can submit hours worked this year, and hours can be accumulated over periods of time and submitted. The form shows start date and finish date. You can also submit hours and dollars spent hiring a contractor to do fuels reduction on your property. Thanks, and keep up the good work! 
Firewise Work Party 10-29-2022
Posted on Oct 31st, 2022
Thirteen hard working residents showed up for the Firewise Work Party on Saturday October 29th.  The rain let up shortly after the work started and a wonderful job was done of thinning, limbing, and hauling fuel to the roadside.  Delicious donuts helped keep our energy up.  A big thank you to all the volunteers!  The chipper will finish the job, paid for by Firewise funds earned by the Community Cost Share project. Drive by 371 Wild Apple and see what is possible with some Firewising.

PPOA Outreach Program
Posted on Feb 20th, 2022
The Board has become aware we have many people in the Park which do not have daily or weekly contact with someone outside of their home or need help with day to day living.  IF you would like to have someone call you to just make sure all is going well or need help, please fill out the following or to fill other needs.
YOU can stop or start this program at anytime.    Remember we are volunteers.
We hope to expand the program to help people with grocery purchases, doctors’ visits, and other services.  This is a free service. Although you would need to pay for any expenses you incur.
LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS. CONTACT 503-473-5773 or PPOAOutreach2022@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering or would like to know more about the program.
