We Want Your Input

Gilpin County has taken proactive measures to protect its communities and infrastructure from wildfire hazards by contracting SWCA Environmental Consultants to develop an updated Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) for 2024. The CWPP will serve as a guiding document that will assist the County and landowners in making informed decisions with respect to wildfire preparation and management.

On June 8th, 2024, Gilpin County will host a public open house at the Gilpin Community Center located at 250 Norton Dr, Black Hawk, CO 80422 from 10:00 am to noon for the 2024 Gilpin County CWPP Update. This will be an opportunity for the community to learn about the CWPP, visit with Gilpin County staff and fire department personnel, and ask questions about the CWPP development process. Information will be on display and light refreshments will be provided; a short presentation will take place shortly after the start of the meeting, around 10:15 AM. If you are unable to attend in person but would still like to learn about the CWPP and provide comments, please use our digital comment form

Please take a few minutes to complete our Gilpin County Community Survey. The survey data is anonymous. All data collected from this survey will be used to inform the CWPP.
