Boulder County, along with Louisville and Superior, have launched a new website that will provide various resources for Marshall Fire victims and their homebuilders, called RebuildingBetter.org.
Specific resources are designed to help with the planning, design and construction process as residents begin to rebuild. Since the beginning of discussions on the reconstruction of the community, public entities have promoted the benefits of efficient houses, said to be cleaner, more comfortable and more resistant to the impacts of climate change.
Boulder County’s residential energy advisory service, EnergySmart, will maintain the site and update it as new resources become available in the coming months.
Some of the topics that can be found on the new site offer advice on identifying rebates and financing options, implementing water and fire resistant landscaping, finding the good construction team, etc. EnergySmart is offering discounts on heat pumps, air sealing materials, heat recovery ventilation and other materials for homeowners affected by the fire.
Financial incentives are also being offered to affected residents looking to rebuild, and more information on this can be found at
