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.
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.

Greetings Highlands 460 Neighbors,
We wrote to you in the spring, and again in October, about the island work to be done by the Southern Metropolitan District. The endless rainy season put our curb and gutter contractor way behind. We held off on planting flowers this year hoping the work would get done. Our contractor has informed us that the necessary permits are in place and they are ready to begin so no holiday lights will be put up this year. Unfortunately weather has continued to be uncooperative – we need a stretch of consistently warm weather for the work – so it’s back to waiting again.
The concrete work is the first step in the major makeover of all five islands. When the concrete work is completed the electrician will bring all islands up to code. Then the landscaper will make numerous changes and additions while upgrading the sprinkler systems where needed.
Please remember the curb and gutter replacement will require heavy equipment and foot traffic on the islands, so we can expect minor detours when work begins.
We know the islands have not been the most welcoming this year without flowers and now no lights. Thank you for your patience and understanding. When all the improvements are complete we will get to enjoy the entry islands for years to come.
