Session 1: Fire & Water

This session will focus on trends in both fire and water that are affecting our valley on a seasonal basis. In a megadrought emerging in the West, will megafires follow? We will leave with actionable items we can all do around water conservation, defensible space and other mitigation efforts.

Presented By:

  • Chief Karl Bauer, Eagle River Fire Protection District
  • Diane Johnson, Eagle River Water & Sanitation District

Description: Whether you live, work or just play in Eagle County, you’ve made a conscious choice to do so thanks to the incredible quality of life and opportunities available here.  However (as with any great place,) there are underlying issues that we can all explore with the goal of coming together around solutions. Community Issues Bootcamp is an opportunity to dive deep into the current issues that are defining the future of Eagle County. Each topic will be led by local and regional experts and features a “takeaway” comprised of information and strategies that you can start to implement immediately around each of these topics.

Intended For: Anyone interested in understanding the factors that affect our local quality of life and the ability to do business in Eagle County. Participants should have a genuine interest in understanding how these external issues affect planning and decision making in our community and what it takes to lead through these challenges.
