To all those home owners who have stepped up and cleaned your lots in order to help Alto become a FireWise community, your efforts are most appreciated!  80% or more of our vacant lot owners are not in compliance—we need your help in getting your lots cleaned up and into FireWise compliance.  This can affect our fire insurance, so please step up and take care of your lots!
