Allow wood-burning recreational fires in PLPOA

This petition made change with 991 supporters!

In the fall of 2019, the Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association (PLPOA) Board of Directors (BOD) approved legal suggestions to be added/changed within the Neighborhood Rules and Regulations document. The change directly prohibits members of the community from burning wood of any kind on their property contained within fire pits. Only gas/propane fire pits are permitted. 

This petition applies to any member of PLPOA in good standing who wishes the PLPOA BOD to revise the language in the Neighborhood Rules and Regulations document to permit recreational wood burning of any kind within an approved fire pit located within the home owner's property. It is not a petition to permit wood burning of any kind defined as "slash burning".

Help show the PLPOA BOD that we do not approve of this change without first requiring a ballot vote or majority approval from members. This drastically affects our way of life and a core principle for why we choose to live in the mountains.  If they can't police fireworks on one night how are they going to police wood-burning fires? Make rules and regulations that can be enforced and are in good faith for the community.
