HELLOOOOOOOO SPRING, AND WELCOME TO ALL NEW OWNERS!
MANAGING THE ELEMENTS OF MOTHER NATURE
As per our previous letter, the FireSmart Coordinator was recently invited out to assess our wildfire risks.
Be aware- we (that means your property) are at a HIGH risk for loss and damage from a wildfire. We are surrounded by wildfire-prone forest, with embers able to travel 2 - 10 km, and across the lake. Even cottages built with fire-resistant materials are at risk of burning because of combustible items around the homes. The good news - we can take some easy steps to greatly reduce the risk. These steps are needed by individual Owners for their lots, and by the community for our common area. For Owners, you can get a rebate for up to $500 to compensate you - eg. for new shrubs, tools, or just your time!
What YOU can do:
1. Watch THIS VIDEO
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ED0kAVJdtLk with your next cup of coffee, or instead of watching that old Cheers rerun tonight, and you will learn informative things about wildfires and how to keep your investment at WRBP protected.
2. Check out the Home Owner's Guide HERE:
3. Book your lot assessment - what you learn may very well save your property and assets. It's free. In fact you may be able to get paid up to $500 if you're eligible for the rebate! Book now for your preferred date to avoid a possible built-up demand due to COVID restrictions. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to get one!

Whats happening with the FireSmart program at WRBP:
FireSmart-sponsored WRBP Community Day is on Saturday, June 26, 2021. Mark your calendars!
Our friendly FSRep Len will tell us about the FireSmart principles and then we'll all work together, under his direction, to remove/reduce the fire hazards in our community with their chipper machine, and they will fuel this project by providing us with a lunch BBQ (COVID-safe), restrictions permitting. More info will be published in the near future.
If you would like to volunteer to help coordinate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
CARETAKER POSITION UPDATE
We are pleased to announce that we have a new Caretaker!
Please welcome Eric Zeuch who will replace Al Fitzell. Eric is a local Eagle Bay resident who brings excellent skills, aptitude, and experience for the role. He begins this month, learning alongside Al.
On April 14, 2021, a 9 page bulletin/report was emailed to each Owner explaining the recent assessment done on our trees and the colour coding of the tagging. (Red= dead or dying in need of removal, Pink= needing pruning, topping or thinning, Brown= needs management for fire risk).
Please remember that current bylaws require Strata Council approval before any native trees or shrubs on your lot are removed and/or destroyed. Council is budgeting for work to be done on Common Property.
The report can also be found on our website at:https://www.wildrosebay.bc.ca/documents-wrb#38-miscellaneous-strata
