Mountain Village Town Council Approves Cedar Shake Fire Mitigation Incentive Program

Words by Bill Kight / Community, Development

The Town of Mountain Village in collaboration with TMVOA as a funding partner continues to be proactive regarding wildfire hazard mitigation in our community. We currently have a Wildfire Mitigation/Defensible Space Incentive Program in place to help our residents create defensible space around their home or buildings lowering their property’s wildfire risk. As part of this Incentive Program, the town rebates 50% of the cost up to $5,000. To continue in these efforts, Mountain Village recently approved and implemented a Cedar Shake Incentive Fire Mitigation Program which provides a rebate up to $5,000 towards a building permit fee when you re-roof your home or building from cedar shake shingle to a town-approved fire rated roofing material.

Town Council recently approved the Cedar Shake Incentive Fire Mitigation Program to help our community members lower their property’s wildfire risk,” explained Planning and Development Services Director Michelle Haynes. “We encourage our community members to take advantage of this incentive program to help mitigate fire hazard on their property.”

To take advantage of this offering, Mountain Village residents will need to complete the follow the following steps.

To learn more about the program and the necessary steps to take to receive up to $5,000 for re-roofing their home or building, visit Town of Mountain Village Incentive Programs. This incentive program is open until funds are exhausted, and is for residents of Mountain Village.
