Project #22-M2-001 Wildfire Mitigation Plan

In the Fiscal Year 2022, the State Historical Fund awarded funds to the Colorado Chautauqua Association to complete a Wildfire Mitigation Plan in order to study specific historic wood-framed building protection mechanisms and materials (foams, fire resistant paints, building wraps, gutter covers, fire shutters, substitute materials, water suppression systems, etc.) The criteria for evaluation of these methods include: efficacy, cost, compliance with SOI Standards, feasibility and reversibility.
