​Address Signs

The Upper Fraser Valley Community Wildfire Protection Plan reported that Winter Park Highlands has a serious problem with missing or inadequate individual home address signage. This is a major safety issue. Inadequate or hard to read signage makes it much harder for rescue or fire personnel to find a home quickly in the event of an emergency.  The CWPP recommends that every building have a permanently posted, reflective address marker mounted on a non-combustible pole. Signs should be made of fire-resistant materials (e.g. metal). The sign should be placed and maintained at each driveway entrance. Care should be taken to ensure that the location will not become obscured by vegetation, snow, or other features, whether natural or manmade. It is critical that the location and markings are adequate for easy night-time viewing.

As a benefit of membership in WPHA, the Association will install, at no charge to a member, a CWPP-compliant sign at the home of every member of the Association from 2011 forward.  The signs have been installed in county right-of-way at the end of each driveway on the right side standing five feet above ground level (after clearing the installation sites with the county locator service).  Here is what the signs look like:
​The horizontal number is the county road number and the vertical number is the house number.  Anyone who is not now a member of WPHA may obtain a sign as one of the many benefits of Association membership.  Click here for a membership application form-dues are $250 per year for developed lots or $125 per year for undeveloped lots --or we will install one without membership for $50.  Members receive a sticker on their signs identifying them as members.  Click here to order a sign without joining; mail your $50 check to WPHA, PO Box 275, Tabernash CO  80478-0275.

To date 319 signs have been installed. Our sign has become the standard for the county and is now being adopted by other homeowner associations. In fact, it has received attention from other counties around the state. Don't have one yet? Ordering information can be found in the preceding paragraph.

>Community Wildfire Protection Plans

Winter Park Highlands is covered by three Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP), the Grand County CWPP adopted in December 2006, the Upper Fraser Valley CWPP adopted in December 2007, and the Grand Fire Protection District No. 1 CWPP adopted in May 2009. The CWPPs were created pursuant to the federal Healthy Forest Restoration Act. Major purposes of each CWPP are to assess the level of risk of wildfires on a community by community basis in the county and to suggest steps that a property owner can take to enhance the likelihood that his or her property would survive a catastrophic wildfire.  All three Plans rate Winter Park Highlands as the second most hazardous community in Grand County (out of 24 assessed), which has been a major impetus for the mitigation work WPHA has pursued throughout the community since 2008 and continuing today. The Plans are invaluable resources and we encourage everyone to take advantage of the information in them.
