Free Yard Debris Pick Up During FireFree 2014
 
Awbrey Butte owners will be able to take advantage of free yard debris pick up in conjunction with FireFree this year. Project Wildfire and Deschutes County have received grant funds to help reduce flammable fuel in high risk areas. Some of this money will be used to pay contractors to pick up and haul away yard debris within Awbrey Butte.
 
Owners will be able to place yard debris out for pick up from Friday April 25 until Thursday, May 1. Contractors will begin picking up the debris on Friday, May 2.
 
Acceptable items:
Pine needles and cones
Limbs (8" maximum diameter - 6' maximum length)
Brush
Weeds and leaves.

Items that are not acceptable:
Stumps
Sod
Rocks and dirt
Grass clippings
Plastic bags

Materials should be staged in a pile on the edge of your lot, adjacent to the street or sidewalk, taking care not to block any sidewalks. The pile should be in an easily accessible location, clear of any trees or boulders.
 
If it is not feasible to stage the material on your lot, you may place it in the parking lane on the street. Please wait until as close to May 1st as possible, if you have to place the material on the street.
 
If you only have a very small amount of yard debris, you can place it in a plastic, or metal, container. The container must be of a size that can be lifted by one person.
 
This is a great opportunity to reduce our risk of a wildland fire and we encourage everyone to participate. It will look messy for a few days but the results will be worth it!  Please tell your neighbors about it, in case they haven't opted in to receive these notices.
 
Note: The grant money is being provided through the Federal government's Wildland Urban Interface Community Fire Assistance program.  This program assists communities at risk from catastrophic wildland fires.

The Architectural Review Process Helps Protect Our Property Values
 
The architectural review process helps protect our property values by maintaining the architectural standards and integrity of our community.
 
Prior approval is required for all building and landscaping modifications, tree removal, green houses, play structures, exterior painting, and any exterior additions, or remodeling. Any change to a previously approved building or landscape approval requires prior approval
 
Failure to obtain prior approval from the Architectural Review Committee (ARC) can result in fines and an order to remove or restore the work that was done. 
 
The Committee meets on the first and third Friday of each month.
 
For more information, call Cascadia Management at (541) 617-3863.

FAQ of the Month
 
What is the Process for Removing Trees?
 
To maintain the natural beauty of Awbrey Butte, the Awbrey Butte Owners Association has established guidelines for the removal of trees from any improved or unimproved lot within Awbrey Butte.
 
Trees that are larger than 6" diameter (19" circumference), at the base may not be removed without prior written approval from the Architectural Review Committee.
 
Unapproved tree removal can result in fines being incurred. The fines for unapproved tree removal can range from $750 to $1,500 per tree, depending on the size of the tree. 
 
Restoration work may also be required to mitigate the loss of screening previously provided by any removed trees.
 
Bend Fire Department advises that it is usually not necessary to remove established trees for fire safety reasons.
