Abstract:
Map 21: Community Values at Risk.
In the past Boulder County assessment, structure density was the only value at risk that was included. In this assessment five more values have been incorporated into the values at risk map: Homes, water supply zones, historical sites, key ecological areas, and roads and railroads. See Maps 23, 24, 25, 26, & 27. Instead of weighting each of these six values equally, like many community wildfire protection plans, we surveyed staff, work group and team members to determine the relative importance of each of these values. We found that homes and “communities” (defined as areas with a structure density greater than 64 structures per square mile) were the most important of these values. Out of total of 100 points, the following weighting was assigned to each value to produce the values at risk map.
Communities 25 Homes 18 Water Supply Zones 17 Priority Historical Sites 15 Key Ecological Areas 14 Roads and Railroads 11
