BROOKSIDE HOT TOPICS--Mar 2016
1. Concerns about what your HOA dues pay for has been raised and we would like to hopefully clear that up. Your dues pay for normal operating expenses within the neighborhood: Electricity for the pump & pumphouse, insurance for our common areas, maintenance [mowing, weed control] of the HOA grounds, and management fees. Any excess funds are put into a savings account which is used to pay unexpected bills such as sprinkler repairs, irrigation pump repairs, or replacing/repairing items in the park area.
2. The picnic tables in the park area have been damaged beyond repair and the parts will be removed this weekend. This is a neighborhood park and it is up to everyone to take care of it. Renters are reminded that you are subject to the same Rules & Regulations as homeowners. Those are posted here on the website for your reference.
BROOKSIDE HOT TOPICS--Feb 2016
In the interest of keeping Brookside homeowners/residents informed of what your Board is doing, we are implementing this posting. First of all, your Board will do whaterver they can to improve thei subdivison and will consider all homeowner suggestions, Please keep in mind, however, that suggestions that conflict with the CC&Rs or established Rules & Regulations [R&R], will not be implemented. CC&Rs and R&R are posted elsewhere on this website.
Following are the current concerns:
1. Trash cans in view from the roads. The CC&Rs and R&R both state that garbage cans must be stored out of sight exept on trash pick-up day. They must be placed BEHIND fences, INSIDE garages, or somewhere out of view. It is also city ordinance that containers not be left on the sidewalk after pick-up day.
2. Derelict vehicles within the neighborhood. The short answer is a vehicle is derelict if it is in plain view from the street and without current plates and registration visible. Again, the CC&Rs and R&R state that inoperable, unlicensed, and unused vehicles must be stored in your garage, behind a privacy fence, or removed from the subdivision. Additionally, derelict/inoperable vehicles are also addressed in the GJ City Ordinances. According to the city ordinance, inoperable vehicles are considered 'outdoor storage' and must be screened from view.
3. Vehicle repair being done in driveways. The CC&Rs allow ordinary maintenance and minor repairs of your own vehicle to be done in the driveway. (this would be things such as oil changes, washing and waxing, etc) Major repairs or restoration must be done inside the garage or behind the fence.
REMINDER: Please remember that Colorado law prohibits parking your vehicle within 15' of a FIRE HYDRANT!!! It has been reported that many residents/visitors to Brookside are violating this. The police/sheriff will be called and tickets will be issued.
All questions should be directed to Hilary at email@example.com. We are excited to work with you and assist you in the support of your HOA. Please let us know how we may serve your needs!
