Pinebrook Trails Update

If you live in one of the Pinebrook Master Association communities, you have hopefully received the latest trails newsletter in your mailbox.

Last year the Trails Preservation Subcommittee (TPS) of the Pinebrook Master Association (PMA) Trail Committee was formed in response to growing complaints from residents about the dramatic increase in use (and abuse) of Pinebrook’s private trails and private parking areas by hikers, dog walkers, and mountain bike riders who don’t live in Pinebrook and are not guests of Pinebrook residents. 

To read more, or if you did not receive the printed trails newsletter, here is a digital version.

Home Fire Inspection Program

The Park City Fire District has announced a Wildland Structure Inspection Program, designed to give homeowners one-on-one training at their home to assess their structures and determine what actions are needed to increase the safety of their home in the event of a wildfire.  The service is free and available on a first come-first served basis.  The approximately one hour inspection will include a detailed assessment of the home, the landscaping, and any outbuildings.  At the end of the assessment the homeowner will have a detailed list of items that can be addressed to help protect the home in the event of a wildfire and a personalized evacuation plan.  Visit the Fire District’s website at www.pcfd.org to register for the service. 

Separately, we encourage all members of the Pinebrook community to stay informed about our Pinebrook Fire Safety Committee’s initiatives. If you aren’t already on that email distribution list, please send an email to pinebrookfiresafety@gmail.com and you will be added.

Calling for Pinebrook Volunteers for Fire Safety Event

We need Pinebrook Volunteers for a Fire Safety Event on Sat June 6th from 9am to 1pm  

The Pinebrook Fire Safety Committee’s first volunteer event of 2020 will be on the morning of Saturday June 6th. There are a number of downed trees and large dead trees street-side on Pinebrook Master Association property on Pinecrest Drive (between the homes at 7083 and 7089). Bring your chainsaw or your branch cutters, come help move the cut logs and branches, or come photograph the event for us. Free firewood will be made available to the community for pickup after the event.  Please join us for any part of the four hour window.  Social distancing will be observed.  Please send any questions to pinebrookfiresafety@gmail.com.”

Invasive Weed Mitigation

The Summit County Cooperative Weed Management Area (Summit County CWM) in cooperation with the Summit County and Salt Lake Weed Control Departments, Park City, and Snyderville Basin Special Recreation District, have been awarded a competitive grant from the Utah State Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) to map and treat two state listed noxious weeds, garlic mustard and spotted knapweed.

Please help us contain the spread of these high priority invasive plants by participating in this county wide management effort. Read more here.

Pinebrook Pool & Rec Center Initiative

Several years ago, plans were created for a private equity membership pool & recreation center in Pinebrook.  With the economic downturn, the project was put on hold.  Now there is a growing group of residents who would like to see this pool & rec center constructed. This is a private project and would not affect HOA dues.

If interested, go to the pool intiative website, check out all the information (there are multiple tabs with a lot of information to answer your questions) and see what you think.  If you’re a member of the Pinebrook Master Association and you’d like to participate in this opportunity, join the list of interested parties by sending an email to pool4pinebrook@gmail.com.
