Mitigation & Resident Grants
Mitigation is Perry Park’s key method to reduce fire risk! The Metro District and individual resident efforts have in the past, and continue now, to make us one of the leading Firewise Communities in the country.
Each year the Metro District implements mitigation efforts to our surrounding areas using both procured grants as well as District funds. The overall plan provides for a major slash removal effort every 10 to 15 years along with annual maintenance to keep growth in check.
To help encourage Perry Park residents to better prepare their property and community for a wildfire event, the Perry Park Metropolitan District has made funding available to all Perry Park Metro District residents and property owners through a residential mitigation grant program.
2017 Residential Mitigation Grant Program:
This program has a total of $25,000 in funding made available to the FIRST 50 successful applicants and will help defray resident mitigation costs billed by third party contractors (see specifics in the PPMD Residential Mitigation Grant Program Details document linked in Qualification section below).
