Outdoor Residential Burning

The City is reviewing policies on outdoor residential wood burning, such as backyard use of fire pits for campfires. As the community continues to grow, how do we balance our enjoyment of the outdoors with concerns about air quality and health impacts?

We need your help exploring the City’s role in the potential regulation of wood fires. Currently, for nuisance concerns, the City will provide outreach in the form of a notification letter when complaints are received. If there are safety concerns, the Poudre Fire Authority will respond with corrective actions for non-emergency situations. Learn more about wood smoke complaints here.
