Shedding Some Light
“How much exterior lighting is too much” was one of the questions we asked in our survey last year. It was the same question Summit County was asking last year at the same time, and as a result they answered the question for all of us with a new Dark Sky Ordinance.
While it’s very similar to the current Promontory Lighting Guidelines, it does have a few more requirements, unfortunately they won’t “grandfather in” the things that home owners have done in the past that don’t comply. They’ll be giving everyone SEVEN YEARS, to up-grade everything, but all new lighting will need to comply going forward.
No landscape lighting or architecture lighting will be allowed other than what is needed for safety or limited in many aspects from fixture design to wattage/lumens and color range.

Cabin landscape maintenance season is upon us. The Conservancy wishes to alert cabin owners to a few noteworthy items related to this maintenance:
- Cabin landscape maintenance will be performed largely by Conservancy staff this season, as opposed to a contractor as has been done previously. The services provided will be the same as you have come to expect, including pruning, planting, irrigation, etc., with the added benefit of more control and immediate response, being done in-house.
- In working to implement industry best practices and Firewise recommendations, the Conservancy will be “limbing up” the trees found throughout the cabin neighborhoods. Crews will be removing the limbs on the lowest 24-36” of each evergreen trunk and the lowest 48” of each deciduous tree. The Conservancy does this trimming with an eye toward healthy growth and mitigating damage in the event of wildfire.
- Various spraying treatments will be applied throughout the cabins this summer season. To accommodate sensitivities to these sprays, cabin owners will be notified approximately 48 hours ahead of each spraying, based on neighborhoods affected.
Tree Care Tips
With spring just around the corner and spring fever to get out and enjoy our yards and the outdoors, we hope this update will help you with any new landscaping plans and management of your current mountain home landscape.
There are three areas of concern that we hope to make you aware of: Diseases, Water, and Planting.

Home Services Hot Tip
April is a good month to take a look at the grounds and exterior structure of your home. Winter conditions always effect both natural and structural surfaces to some degree. Each surface is unique in regards to the reaction and durability from the particular element exposure each surface encounters. Winter conditions can be relentless and incredibly destructive. It is important to rectify damage routinely so problems don’t compound seasonally.
Another April checklist suggestion includes getting the heat cable lines shut off, it’s always nice to reduce the electric bill, not having to run power to melt roofs and gutters.
Promontory Home Services would be happy to asses these items on your behalf. Feel free to ring them at 435.333.4220 or click the link below.

The alert center also provides information about non-emergency matters in and about Summit County.
