Project Background

In 2010, Boulder County applied for the 2011 Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant, funded by FEMA and administered by the Colorado Department of Public Safety. The grant was awarded in 2013 upon completion of the environmental assessment. Partners in this effort include the Town of Nederland, Boulder Valley School District, and the City of Boulder. This effort is directly targeted at reducing fuel loads and risk adjacent to critical infrastructure and communities in the Boulder County Wildland/Urban Interface (WUI). Hazard fuel reduction is recommended by the Nederland Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) as part of a community-wide effort to reduce risk of wildfire and protect critical infrastructure. The Caribou Ridge mitigation project is a component of that effort.
