Community Advisor

The membership of your H460 Covenant Review Committee (CRC) has changed! We have all new membership and a brand new approach we’d like to introduce you to.

Our goal is to have a neighborhood we can all be proud of, supporting the families and neighbors who live in and care about their homes and this community. We believe that homeowners want to ‘do it right’….following our community standards, covenants and procedures.

Want to improve your home, but you just don’t know what is expected in our community?

Seeking guidance should be your first step when planning a home improvement project and we just made it easier:

• Enter our new Community Advisor, a friendly person who will discuss your project with you, answer questions and help resolve any issues prior to submission of your Improvement Request.

• Contact the Advisor (H460advisor@highlands460.org) as soon as you start thinking about replacing a fence or roof, building a shed or deck, adding solar, etc. You’ll be amazed with how easy the process is and that most of the time it only requires a quick chat!

• If you are going to be spending your hard-earned money to improve your house, let the community Advisor help you protect your investment with advice and help in navigating the Covenant process(es).

• When potential problems are caught before contracts are signed and work begins, you are protected and our community is too.

Your new CRC is truly here to serve our community, balancing homeowner desires with the requirements of our Covenants, the preservation of property values, and keeping H460 a great place to live. Help us help you, and contact the Advisor before you begin your home improvement project.

Ice Cream Social & Recycling

Please join the Highlands 460 Board at Arapaho Park on Saturday, July 23 for our annual ice cream social. Stop by as you make your way home from that bike ride, or take a break from yard work and enjoy a treat and chat with neighbors. The event runs from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., but come by early, as the first 300 dues-paid family members will be served a yummy delight! Hope to see you there! Your H460 Board will be hosting a Recycling event during the July 23 Ice Cream Social. It will be held alongside Otero on the east side of Arapaho Park. We will have vendors available to shred paper, collect electronics and latex paint. The paint recycling and paper shredding is free to residents, and most of the electronic recycling is free except for wiping hard drives clean (which comes with a certificate of destruction) for $10 and CRT tube TVs for $2 per inch measuring the screen diagonally. Otherwise, bring anything with a plug including computers, cell phones, TVs, hard drives, monitors, printers, laptops, smoke detectors, game consoles, etc. For any questions or concerns, please contact Rob Mancey, Rob@DestinationDenverRealty.com or 303-902-7525.

Island Update

Dear Highlands 460 Neighbors,

The major restoration and repair work has begun on our 5 entry islands and some side areas along those entrances. The first project of replacing the concrete curb and apron around the islands is under way. After completion of the concrete work we will begin to see many changes to the existing landscape. What you won’t see are the extensive changes to the electrical and irrigation infrastructure. All the work will comply with the City of Centennial building codes.

The contractors will be diligent to cause as little disruption to the traffic patterns while not compromising their safety. Please expect some detours throughout this whole process which could take a few months.

We thank all of you for your understanding. If you have questions you may contact me, Ed Quinn, a member of the Board of the Southern Metropolitan District. 303-807-7688, Ed@EdQuinnSite.com.

Need a New Roof?

Remember that YOU MUST SUBMIT AN IMPROVEMENT REQUEST FORM AND OBTAIN APPROVAL from the Covenant Review Committee BEFORE signing any contracts, purchasing materials, or beginning any improvements. This applies even to replacement with materials previously approved. The Request form allows H460 volunteers to help you avoid costly mistakes and to help identify applicable covenants and even city or state restrictions. Your covenants require approval from the CRC; repairs/improvements not approved are violations subject to be rectified at the cost of the homeowner.

Please also remember that your Covenant Review Committee is not run by a paid management company but consists of neighborhood volunteers, so be courteous and patient.
