Canyon Creek Greenbelt Fire Risk - What Can You Do To Help?

As you may have heard, there have been instances of fires being set in the Canyon Creek HOA Greenbelt areas.  The police and fire marshal have been made aware of these instances.  Anyone found guilty of setting these fires may be appropriately charged by authorities.  Please contact the Police (911), Travis County Fire Marshal or your Canyon Creek board to report any information on these instances.  If you see something, say something. 

No fires of any kind are allowed in any part of our Canyon Creek HOA greenbelt areas as it poses a certain risk to property damage and to the lives of our residents. 

What can you do?

  • Reduce the risk to your property as well as the entire neighborhood by employing Firewise guidelines and Firewise Principles around your property. 
  • If you live along the the Canyon Creek greenbelt, check to make sure that you do not have any unnecessary fire load behind or to the side of your property.  While you do not own the greenbelt property, a wildfire will indiscriminately surge through any yard clipping and brush that may have collected.  This fire load may not have been put there by you, but we need to work together to remove it.  You do not need permission to enter the HOA greenbelt.
  • Although not yet posted on the City of Austin website, our next scheduled large brush collection will be on February 12, 2018. But do not wait. You may begin to minimize your fire load by discarding brush in lawn bags though normal weekly collection.
