Toll Canyon Forest ThinningPosted: September 14, 2017
Basin Recreation’s Trails and Open Space is working with the Utah Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands (FFSL) to mitigate the risk and hazard of wildfire on Toll Canyon and Summit Park Open Space properties.
The project, which is planned to begin September 13, 2017 will treat an 80-ft corridor of forested open space along the dirt jeep road route (known as the Hoof-it Trail) between Summit Park and Toll Canyon, then continue up the ridge (along the Over Easy Trail to Summit Slam). The FFSL Hot Shot Fire Crews will work throughout the month of September and October, clearing brush and hazardous trees.
This project will create a continuous break from Pinebrook to Summit Park by connecting the fuel reduction zone created in summer 2017 within lower Toll Canyon and previous control areas created in 2006-07. The “Firewise” buffer created by this project will also serve to reduce the volume of surrounding forest vegetation (fuels) that present a hazard to nearby homeowners, while providing a safe route for emergency personnel to attack fire in the case of a catastrophic event. FFLS crews will also remove beetle killed trees and thin dense growing conifers to improve forest health and enhance wildlife habitat in the area. A chipper will be utilized to dispose of the debris and redistribute the residue on the forest floor for recycling. Firewood rounds will be stacked on the road for a community collection, scheduled for later fall.
In the interest of public safely, users of Hoof-it in Toll Canyon and Over Easy to Summit Slam in Summit are advised to avoid the area when crews are actively working. Crew, when working will be in the area from 6am-6pm Monday through Friday. The project is projected to be completed in spring 2018.

Fireworks Ban in Effect in PinebrookPosted: June 27, 2017
Park City has officially banned fireworks this summer within the city limits. While there has not been an official ban of fireworks in Summit County, the board of the Pinebrook HOA has decided to be proactive and declare a fireworks ban in Pinebrook effective immediately through October 31st, 2017. The upcoming 4th of July weekend will be hot, and the tall grass from this spring’s wet weather has once again resulted in a particularly dangerous situation. ALL open fires, fire crackers and aerial fireworks are prohibited. Signage will very soon be put in place reminding residents of the ban. Please pass along the information to your friends and neighbors to help keep Pinebrook safe during the holidays and remainder of the summer. Thank you once again for your understanding and cooperation.

Spring Cleanup Days May 27 – June 4thPosted: May 11, 2017
The spring cleanup days have been scheduled for Saturday, May 27th through Sunday, June 4th. As in prior years, dumpsters will be made available to Pinebrook residents and located in the parking lot of the Pinebrook Park. Crews from Gorgoza Mutual Water Co. will be chipping wood brought to the park with less than a 6″ diameter, so the event will be a good time to remove deadfall and winter-kill from your property in an effort to reduce fire danger this summer. Please be courteous with the volume of your loads, and remember you can always contact the Park City Fire District for their free curbside wood chipping service as well.
Please do not dispose of ANY hazardous or bio hazardous chemicals or waste, explosives, propane bottles, paint, medicine, etc. Construction debris is also not allowed.
Thanks for your cooperation. Additional information will follow in a forthcoming newsletter.

Spring RunoffPosted: March 17, 2017
As you all know, we received a significant amount of snow in Pinebrook this winter. To prepare for potentially heavy runoff from snowpack or springtime rains, please make sure your sump pumps are working properly and streams potential runoff drainages are diverted away from your lower level windows and doors. The past few months have seen significant precipitation and dramatically fluctuating temperatures, so a significant warm-up followed by heavy rains on saturated soil could cause problems if homeowners are not prepared.
