Burning Banned in City Parks – Wildfire Concern

July 22nd, 2016

On July 15, the Parks and Recreation Department issued a Parks Burning Restriction within all City parkland that took immediate affect. Smoking, open fires and grilling (with the exception of propane grills and stoves) are not allowed on all City-owned parkland while these restrictions are in place. Violations of the Parks Burning Restrictions will result in a fine between $300 and $500.

These restrictions are being put in place due to the current drought conditions, which make wildfires a serious potential hazard to the City's parks and surrounding communities.
