Rocky Mountain Power To Start Vegetation Work in Summit Park

Hi neighbors – Rocky Mountain Power reached out earlier this month to let us know they are going to start some tree work in the neighborhood. Here is what they said:

Greetings, Rocky Mountain Power will begin vegetation management activities in the Summit Park area in the next few weeks. The work we have planned is focused on reducing the risk of fire and increasing safety and reliability. A certified arborist will start inspecting and lining up work with property owners, tree crews and pole clearing crews will follow shortly after that to complete the work that is identified. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Activities will include:

  • The clearing of vegetation and herbicide application around subject poles that have been identified with the potential to create a spark.
  • Inspection and mitigation of any off right of way trees that have the potential to fail and strike the conductors.
  • Inspection and mitigation of trees that have the potential to grow into the conductors.

We know there have been a lot of pain points in the past when this work with Rocky Mountain Power has cut down or limbed high risk trees. We appreciate that they are proactively letting our neighborhood know they will be starting this work and how to get in touch with the appropriate people, but we still encourage residents to raise concerns if you feel like something is not right. Please see the contact information and numbers above and feel free to reach out to the HOA if you have issues:
