2008 HOA Letter - Tips for Homeowners Living in the High Sonoran Desert
The City of Scottsdale has created a brochure that outlines the top eight Invasive Weeds (pdf/973kb/2pp) identified to exist in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. For a hard copy, please call the Scottsdale Fire Department at 480-312-FIRE or 480-312-3111.
Additional tips (for non-NAOS areas):
- Deposit all cigarette butts in proper containers. Never throw a cigarette butt onto the ground.
- When camping, follow local agency rules for campfires. Do not build a fire without making sure open fires are allowed, and always follow fire safety information.
- Add a spark arrester to off-road vehicles and other small internal combustion engines such as generators.
