Community members are invited to view the draft CWPP updated document and leave comments by April 8, 2024.

City of Boulder community members have until April 8 to access and leave comments on the draft Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) Update on the city’s website. Comments and questions left on the draft will be addressed by city experts and SWCA Environmental Consultants for the final CWPP document. The CWPP identifies wildfire risks in the wildland-urban interface (WUI), which refers to the area between wildland and human development.

The public review and commentary period for the updated CWPP is the next step in the process that incorporates community feedback. The process has already included an ongoing community survey, two virtual engagement sessions, and two in-person engagement sessions.

A crucial aspect of the CWPP is to recommend strategies for hazardous fuels reduction, public outreach and education, structural ignitability reduction, and improved fire response capabilities. Community members should be able to see these strategies within the draft document. When the final document is ready by June, the CWPP will serve as a guiding document that will assist the city and landowners in making informed decisions with respect to wildfire preparation and management.

You can view more information about the CWPP, read the draft, and make comments online.
