Free Yin yoga practice offered from library’s digital collection

Campaign offers information on wildfire protection for area

The Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors, in conjunction with the Routt County Office of Emergency Management and the Colorado State Forest Service, will be providing a 12-part series on wildfire protection and mitigation through tips and information that will publish every Wednesday and Sunday in the Steamboat Pilot & Today beginning Wednesday, May 2. With the dry winter that Routt County has experienced, the risk of wildfires is significant, and the goal of the series is to provide residents with the tools and knowledge they need to protect their property and family by taking steps in preparation of a possible fire.

Steamboat Springs offers tips on spring improvement projects

The city of Steamboat Springs Public Works Department offers the following tips to assist homeowners and contractors in getting the most out of spring cleaning and improvement projects.
■ City code restricts placing large landscape materials such as berms, trees and boulders within 10 to 15 feet of the street driving surface and within 15 feet of fire hydrants. The right-of-way area, which is typically 30 feet from the centerline of street, is used for snow storage and utility line installation.
■ Right-of-way permits are required and will be issued from Tuesday, May 1 to Nov. 1 for work done within the city’s right-of-way. Permits are available through the streets superintendent at the Public Works Shop, 850 Critter Court.
■ The city’s scoria clean-up program typically runs through the month of April, weather permitting. During this time, the streets division sweeps remaining scoria from the roadways. Residents are asked to help with collection by raking out remaining scoria from their property, including the right-of-way and culverts onto the asphalt shoulder of the road.
■ Commercial contractors or property management companies that provide this service must remove the materials themselves. Branches that have been trimmed or trees that have been cut down, as well as other refuse must be disposed of by the resident or a contractor and should not be placed with scoria.
■ The city’s Adopt-A-Street program encompasses the collector streets across Steamboat Springs such as Mount Werner Road, Pine Grove Road, Walton Creek Road, Village Circle, Steamboat Boulevard and Elk River Road. Groups or individuals that are interested in keeping a city collector street litter free may apply to Streets Division of Public Works, 850 Critter Court, or contact Sheila Weekly at 970-879-1807.
For more information, contact Street Superintendent David Van Winkle at 970-879-1807 or or Street Supervisor Tom Martindale at 970-879-1807 or
