Keep Sierra Safe from Wildfire
 
Your continued efforts are appreciated in helping reduce the fire hazard in our neighborhood.  This includes keeping tall grass and weeds mowed or cut so they don't exceed 8 inches in height.  Also, disposing of dead vegetation, tree limbs, etc., can help reduce potential fuel sources. 
 

See the Firewise page for more info and resources.  Thank you for your cooperation!

Poison Hemlock Abatement

Scotch Broom and Other Invasive Species
 
Sierra and much of Island County continue to have issues with other invasive or noxious weeds including Scotch Broom and Canada or Bull Thistle which can overtake native vegetation.
 
 
  Read the latest article about how serious the
  Scotch Broom issue is on Whidbey
 
 
 
 
 
See helpful information about other noxious weeds
and what you can do to control them on the
Island County Noxious Weed Control Board website.
 

 

REMINDER: Speed Limit in Sierra is 25 mph!

Lowering your speed while driving the streets inside Sierra
is a neighborly thing to do and it's the law!
