The City of Boulder has taken proactive measures to protect its communities and infrastructure from wildfire hazards by contracting SWCA Environmental Consultants to develop an updated CWPP for 2024. The CWPP identifies wildfire risks in the wildland-urban interface (WUI), which refers to the area between wildland and human development.

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. By addressing these areas, the city aims to heighten the safety of its residents and critical infrastructure in the face of potential wildfires. 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.

Please take 5 minutes to complete the community survey.

The survey data is anonymous. All data collected from this survey will be used to inform the CWPP.
