Join the Lake Dillon Fire Protection District
Until recently, most of the Lower Blue Valley between Silverthorne and Heeney has been a no-man’s-land, outside of any fire protection district.
In about 2006, whole subdivisions were invited to join Lake Dillon Fire District, if there was unanimous agreement of owners. Then, 6 years ago, individual owners were invited to join, even if their neighbors declined to be included. Now, of 185 possible No-Man’s-Land properties, 73 are officially included in the Fire District—about 40%. The others have hesitated, primarily because of the associated increase in property tax, now $71.64 per $100,000, actual value.
We have a wonderful fire department, which has showed even more interest in the Lower Blue, since our owners have started joining. FOLBR strongly encourages everyone in “No-Man’s Land”, not already included in the Fire District, to join now!
The application process has been simplified—1 page. The application fee is now $100 for individual properties.
