Being Firewise: Even though there are some small pockets of snow still on the ground, that doesn’t mean that we are in the clear as far as wildfire is concerned. Northern Arizona is in the midst of a multi-year drought and foliage can be the perfect tinder for wildfire.
Therefore, if you own a vacant lot or a property with accumulations of dead materials such as pine needles, branches or dead trees, please get these materials removed prior to spring. If we don’t clear these items out each year, they endanger not only our homes, but our overall community. Be “firewise” this year and always, not only for your sake and safety, but for your friends and neighbors as well.
Other items that we’ll be focusing on in the coming months include:
- Fences (CC&R’s page 5, Item “F” and Single Family Rule 4.5). Mesh, metal, chain link, and other types of wire fencing is prohibited by the CC&R’s. In the next two months it is a goal to have all fences that are within CCC but out of compliance logged and reviewed against their files. Homes without written approval for said fences will be required to removed the CC&R violation.
- Street Parking (Single Family Rule 7.3 & City of Flagstaff Seasonal Parking Ordinance). Parking on the street is prohibited between the hours of midnight and 7 a.m. between November 1 and April 1.
- Political Signs (Single Family Rule 3.5 & 3.7). Political signs are permitted and must comply with the City of Flagstaff sign ordinance regarding size and location; however, they must be removed within three days after the election. Other signs may be permitted with the prior written approval of the Board.
