Ponderosa Fire Information

Chelan County Commissioners have lifted the outdoor burning ban effective 10-1-2016 subject to the following requirements:

  • Burn barrels are illegal
  • The burn pile must be smaller than 4 X 4 X 3
  • No fires within fifty feet of a structure
  • You may burn only one pile at a time
  • Do not leave your fire unattended- a person capable of extinguishing it must attend at all times
  • The fire must be extinguished before leaving it
  • Burn unprocessed natural material only- no construction or demolition debris
  • Your smoke must not impact neighbors

Instead of burning to get rid of vegetation, try composting and chipping.”

Members with rentals, please inform renters of the fire rules!

We Need Your Vote

The Ponderosa Board of Directors found that a majority vote of the Ponderosa Membership to change the use of one community owned lot to greenbelt property will reduce the tax paid by the Membership.  Currently, this lot is being used recreationally for beach access and reclassification to greenbelt is more appropriate classification.  This will reduce the amount of tax paid on this lot determined by the Assessor’s office.  Once this passes, the property will join the current green belt properties.  The property that is being referenced is at 23101 Saddle Street, Parcel number 261724792005.  Every vote counts!  Please sign the attached document and return to the Ponderosa office at Ponderosa Community club 21100 Cayuse, Leavenworth, WA 98826.

Information from the Watershed Committee

The Trails Master Plan has been completed. It contains descriptions of our current trails and the vision and plans for the expanded trail system of the future with a diverse variety of experiences, destinations, lengths and levels of difficulty to appeal to all our members year round. It articulates the criteria and standards for the development and maintenance of PCC trails. Please click on this Trails Master Plan link to review the information.

Noxious Weeds: Spring is a good time to eliminate noxious weeds. The Watershed Committee is seeking a volunteer to step up and lead the charge against noxious weeds in the Ponderosa. Please see attached flyer.

The Watershed Committee reports that all trails were cleared, restored, widened or constructed as planned!  Enjoy!

The attached flier for the Chiwawa River Pines News, is very informative and relevant to the Ponderosa. EVERY MEMBER of the Ponderosa who has not yet signed up for the FireWise Program for their personal property is encouraged to sign up for FireWise by contacting me at DougPen@nwi.net to get on the list. For those already on the list, a new revised online home form is being finalized and so we will be able to begin conducting Ponderosa home evaluations with the owners this summer.

Help Us, Help you

Order reflective address signs so that responders can find your home in a fire or medical emergency. Forms to order signs are available at the Ponderosa Office. If you have questions, call (509) 662-4734 or go to www.chelancountyfire.com.
