As an identified property owner in the vicinity of the Elsinore Front Country Fuel Break Project you may have received a correspondences from Black Fox Timber Management Group, Inc. on behalf of Riverside County Fire Department in regards to access to your property and/or removing fuels (trees, shrubs and/or other vegetation that may present a fire hazard). Your acceptance, completion and return of the following documents are extremely important to the project which is vital for the safety of your community.
County Property Owner Agreement
This document is a contract between the County and the property owner(s) which allows the necessary work needed to create the fuel break to be done on the property. This includes work done by Black Fox Timber Management Group, Inc. to provide professional forestry services and manage the fuel reduction project on behalf of the County, including oversight of a Licensed Timber Operator company. These services include flagging the property to identify the vegetation for removal as well as boundary lines. Your acceptance, completion and return of this document as soon as possible is critical to the success of this project! We encourage you to reach out with any questions to Melissa Curtis, Grants Analyst, at (951) 940-6361 or via email at Melissa.Curtis1@fire.ca.gov
This document will provide additional information about your property that is extremely helpful to the project team so adequate safety precautions can be taken. We do not want to accidentally set any of your animals loose or disturb a special site! Your completion of this form allows the project team to better understand the property dynamics and contact you directly with any questions.
Right of Entry Agreement Similar to the property owner’s agreement, this document when completed and returned allows the project team access to your land. However, there will be no removal of any vegetation on the property for the fuel break. Areas have been identified that would be ideal for staging equipment, providing access to other properties, boundary flagging, etc. which is vital to the project and the overall hazard mitigation.
