Neighborhood news Spring has Arrived

Pools Opening Soon

As you are getting this edition of the Meadows Living, spring is just around the corner. We hope the last of the snow is gone.  Since the last newsletter, we now have a newly-elected group of dedicated volunteers serving as your District Delegates.  As always, it is great working with them.  We’d also like to thank everyone for voting for this year’s annual District Delegate election so that we could achieve quorum and also a big thank you for the owners who were in attendance at the Annual Members Meeting.  We had a quantity of guest speakers at our meeting this year and it was a very informative and productive meeting.    Warmer weather equals increased pedestrian traffic along Meadows Neighborhood Company streets.  Please remember to maintain a safe speed throughout the community, obey all posted speed limit signs, and watch carefully for pedestrians. I also ask that pedestrians exercise caution as well by checking both ways before crossing the street and crosswalks when possible, just to be sure that the oncoming vehicular traffic sees you before crossing.   We’ve received a few reports lately of vehicles not stopping and rolling through lights or stop signs and almost striking the pedestrians crossing the roadways.  Remember to also reduce your speed at times of poor visibility (inclement weather, nighttime, etc.).  Failing to stop is a driving offense and would constitute a ticket but is also exceptionally dangerous for all vehicles on the roadways.    The Meadows boasts many areas for residents who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors. There are walking/ hiking trails, biking trails, swimming, the dog park, and a lot of fun upcoming events planned to keep your family entertained and allow you to spend some quality time with your loved ones in the process.  Enjoy the amenities and have some fun in the sun on the trails or at one of the numerous parks throughout the community.   Have a great spring! 

Spring is finally here and that means the Meadows Neighborhood Company (MNC) pools will be opening soon! The MNC has two swimming pool facilities. They are located at The Grange (3692 Meadows Blvd.) and the Taft House (3570 Celestial Ave.) The pool season starts Memorial Day weekend with the pools opening for the season on Saturday, May 23rd. The pools will remain open for the summer and the last day of operation will be on Labor Day which is Monday, September 7th. Please continue reading this newsletter because we have a great article with lots of useful pool information. We also have information available on our website at www. meadowslink.com. You can access it by clicking on the Amenities tab at the top of the page and then selecting the pool information from the drop down menu. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone at the pools this spring/summer!

Water and Radon Information

By: Doc Ray |Covenants Standards Specialist, CMCA, AMS dray@meadowslink.com

We would like to Congratulate our Community Standards Specialist Doc Ray on obtaining her Association Management Specialist (AMS) designation. The AMS designation demonstrates a higher level of commitment to her career and the community association industry.

Nearly 75 percent of all water consumed in Castle Rock is used by residents. That’s why helping residential customers conserve is a top priority for Castle Rock Water. Customer assistance Programs from Castle RockTargeting the largest consumption area - outdoor irrigation - the Town provides rebates for those residents taking steps to reduce water for their landscape. Typically, rebates are available for turf removal, smart irrigation controllers and rotary sprinkler nozzles. Additionally, residents can request irrigation audits / sprinkler inspections, at no charge. Funding for these programs comes from water violations and excess water usage surcharges. Learn more about Repair Services applying for a rebate at http:// crconserve.com/rebates Watering restrictions Every-third-day and day-time watering restrictions have brought watering efficiency to resident’s minds, minimized evaporation, controlled water waste and positively affected demand. Restricting watering times encourages residents to water when conditions are the most favorable and watering is most effective. Please visit CRconserve.com for water usage information Radon Please submit ARC requests to install Radon Mitigation Systems. From the ARC guidelinesRadon Mitigation Systems: Approval is required. a) The radon mitigation pipe(s) should be placed in the least visible location (such as adjacent to an existing gutter or downspout). b) The radon mitigation pipe(s) should be painted to match with the surface from which it projects or to blend with an adjacent downspout.

Neighborhood news Exterior Painting Guidelines

By: Barbara Doyle |Community Standards Specialist bdoyle@meadowslink.com Painting season is here, and many homeowners are anxious to schedule their painting projects. However, before you pull out the paint brushes or hire a painting contractor, please keep in mind that all exterior painting must be approved by the Architectural Review Committee (ARC) in advance, even if you are painting the existing colors. When painting your home, the main requirement is that you maintain the original color matrix of the home. This means that if you have a 3-color matrix (body, trim, punch) or a 4-color matrix (body 1, body 2, trim, punch), it must remain a 3-color or 4-color matrix. You are welcome to submit a new color scheme of your choice, which you feel would be complementary to your home and the neighborhood. When reviewing your submittal for approval, the Architectural Review Committee will take into consideration the style of your home, the color of any existing stone or brick on the home, the color of the roof, as well as the colors of your adjacent neighbors’ homes. Following are the items that need to be submitted for all painting projects: 1) A completed ARC Application Form, which is available at the Taft House or Grange or can be found on our website

at www.meadowslink.com – MNC Info – Architectural Review Information – ARC Application. 2) Actual samples of the proposed colors delivered or mailed to the Taft House or The Grange. 3) A picture or sketch of your home showing where each of the colors will be applied so the Committee can see that the original matrix is being maintained. 4) Developed color photographs of the front of your house and the back of your house, including the deck or patio. If you have a deck with any wood, vertical surfaces, i.e., railings, fascia board, support posts, etc., indicate if they will be painted the color of the house or the trim. 5) Developed color photographs of the front of your adjacent neighbors’ homes on your left, on your right and directly across the street. If you have questions or need further clarification regarding the exterior painting approval process, please feel free to contact me.

April-May 2020

All About Trash We have a contract with Waste Management for our trash services here in The Meadows Neighborhood Company. There are some requirements that will take all of our efforts to assist Waste Management’s efficiency in trash collection by utilizing all the fully mechanized, current automatic collection capabilities. One of the requirements is all the trash must be contained in a Waste Management provided trash cart to allow the truck to pick up the can and collect the garbage with its mechanized arms, which will no longer require the driver to get out at every house to load up all the trash that is on the curb. Additional bags and boxes full of trash curbside will not be available for pickup, without calling WM, scheduling, and paying for the larger trash service. Customers who have already purchased 2nd trash or recycle carts may continue to use them at no charge, but no refunds will be issued on the previously purchased equipment. If you need more than two trash carts, or two recycling carts, there will be a fee for any additional carts that are needed at a property. All leaf and yard waste must be disposed of in the carts. Cardboard boxes will still be picked up, but they must be flattened, and placed next to your cart on either regular trash day or recycling day. Service will remain on Friday. Any missed pickups reported on Friday prior to close of business, shall be collected on Saturday. If your pickup was inadvertently missed, please contact jvalley@meadowslink.com. To request a bulk pickup, please call 303-797-1600. We ask for your assistance, and to help us become more efficient, order your additional carts and start placing all trash inside the carts for pickup.

Titonic is an 8 piece Funk/Soul/R&B (with horns) band. With their killer vocals, thumpin’ rhythm section and groovy horns, you do not want to miss them get funky. So bring your dancing shoes and shake a tail feather or two, because Titonic will play hits from artist such as Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and Tower of Power to name a few. Guaranteed to bring down the house.

July 23 – Ronnie Raygun and the Big Eighties Ronnie Raygun and the Big Eighties got their start as an eighties tribute band in 1998 when they rolled into Denver as Boogie Machine, The Super 70’s Disco Dynamo.

To this day, even though Denver has a slew of bands playing eighties music, Ronnie Raygun is Colorado’s ORIGINAL Eighties Tribute Band!
