About the Highlands

Highlands 460 is a covenant controlled residential community developed in the seventies by many of Denver’s leading homebuilders. We are located on the Arapahoe County side of what was the original Highlands Ranch. The Highlands 460 neighborhood is between Dry Creek and County Line Roads on the north and south, respectively, and Colorado Boulevard and Adams Way to the east and west (see our map in Download Attachments at the bottom of this page). The Highlands 460 is within the limits of the Littleton Public School District. Our emergency services are provided by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department and Littleton Fire Rescue.

Once a part of unincorporated Arapahoe County, Highlands 460 became part of the City of Centennial, Colorado in November, 2000. Our neighborhood consists of 864 single family residences and is governed by Covenants administered by the Covenant Review Committee (email crc@highlands460.org) and Highlands 460 Civic Association. All homeowners are members of the association; dues are voluntary.

The Association is run entirely by volunteers in the community and sponsors many activities.  The Covenant Review Committee educates and enforces the covenants or involves the City of Centennial as appropriate. There’s a July 4th Parade, Ice Cream Social, a Neighborhood Picnic, Community Garage Sale, Large Item Pickup, and Fall Clean Up Day. Check out the calendar section of this website to see what’s coming up. There is also an informal neighborhood playgroup -(email h460news@highlands460.org to join).

Monthly Board meetings are the first Wednesday of the month, held at 7:00 at Metrum Community Credit Union, 6980 S Holly Circle. All residents are invited to participate. The annual Homeowners Meeting is the first Wednesday in February, also at 7:00 at Metrum. Recent Minutes of the meetings are online, as well as financial reports.

The monthly Highlands Highlights newsletter is put together by Colorado Lasertype, with articles contributed by H460 volunteers, and sent to all homes.

You’ll find a list of schools, recreation opportunities and other contact information on the Community Resources page.

The perimeter brick fencing/landscaping and the five entry islands for the original Highlands 460 subdivisions are owned and maintained by Southern Metropolitan District, a special taxing district. Additional information is available on SMD’s website at www.SouthernMetroDistrict.com. Questions or emergency contact should be directed to the Board chairman, Richard Boon, at 303.221.1559. Meetings of SMD are open to H460 residents and are held at Wild Basil (corner of Holly and County Line). Check the SMD website for dates.
