Neighborly News GOT TRASH? The Board of Governors just approved a new contract with Waste Management for continuation of our trash services here in The Meadows Neighborhood Company. However, in order to maintain the competitive pricing, there are some changes coming 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 big changes 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. 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 2 trash carts, or 2 recycling carts, there will be a fee for any additional carts that is needed at a property. There will be a special leaf and yard waste pick-up offered in the Spring during leaf season, where 10 bags of leaf/yard waste will be picked up curbside. There will also be a spring yard waste pick-up offered the first Friday of every June which will allow for 10 bags of yard waste curbside. Otherwise, all leaf and yard waste must be disposed of in the carts. To provide for this new efficiency, Waste Management is now offering a second cart for trash and/or recycling for every home in The Meadows free of charge, just call us at 720-476-4003 to have an additional cart delivered to your property. Cardboard boxes will still be picked up, but they must be flattened, and set 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. All changes will be transitioned by April of 2018, but we ask for your assistance now to help us become more efficient, order your additional carts, and start placing all trash inside the carts for pickup. If you have any questions, please contact us at 720-476-4006.

POOLS ARE OPEN!

Does Everyone Need a Pool Pass? It is pool season! The MNC pools are open 10 am-8 pm until August 6. Beginning August 7, Taft House pool will only be open Monday - Friday 3:30-7 pm, and weekends 10 am-8 pm through September 4. Grange pools will remain open 10 am-8 pm daily through September 4. Depending on our weather we may extend the swim season for a couple more weekends, watch social media for details as the time comes. There are two dates the pools will close early due to a special event at the pool. The Grange will close on July 28 at 6 pm for the Adult Luau. August 11, Taft House pool will close at 7 pm for the Flick ‘n Float Movie, as the Disney movie, Moana will be shown. We hope that you register for one or both of these special events. More details on these events are listed on page 20 & 22 of this newsletter. Each pool member has, or will need to be, registered with The Grange or Taft House, and pool fobs can be picked up during regular office hours. Please like our Facebook page, download The Meadows App or follow www.meadowslink.com to stay up to date on all things pool related this summer. Every member of your household who will be using the pool must have their picture taken at The Grange or Taft House for identification purposes. As always, owners must be current on assessments in order to enjoy use of the pool. There is no charge for a pool pass if you are a MNC resident. MNC Pre-Paid Guest Daily Pass Fees Prepaid guest passes are only available at The Grange/Taft House and not for sale at the pool entrance. All guests must be accompanied by a member or current pass holder. No refunds or exchanges, and the MNC is not responsible for lost, stolen, or destroyed/damaged tickets. Maximum of 8 guests per day, 40 guests per season per household on a space available basis only. Passes have no cash value and are valid for the 2017 season only. Cost for the prepaid daily guest passes are 1-$5, 5-$23, 10-$45, 15-$65, or 20-$85. MNC Caregiver Passes: One caregiver pass will be issued per family upon request. Caregiver may only come accompanied by the child/ children in that household. Caregiver may not be the primary or secondary resident listed on the member information form or other member of the common household group.

10 JUNE-AUGUST 2017

New MNC Homeowner or Resident without a FOB If you are a new Meadows Neighborhood homeowner, or if adding a new member to your household, or a resident that has not received a key fob yet, please complete a registration form and bring each and every family member to The Grange during the times listed and get a picture taken and we will issue each household member a key fob. You may download the registration form from Meadowslink.com. If you have just recently closed on your home, it would be a good idea to bring your closing paperwork, as it can take some time for your information to get entered into our system. Are you an MNC resident and already have a key fob? If you are an MNC homeowner, and received a key fob last year, you do not have to do anything except come in and update your children’s photos. If you have misplaced your key fob, you may purchase a new one at The Grange for a $10 replacement fee. Lap Swimmers Please Note: You may request a lane to be put up during regular pool hours in the lap pool at The Grange. Lap swimming only is available Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8:00 am-10:00 am through September 2. Lap swimming is defined as actively moving forward with some continuous effort. A lifeguard will be on duty to monitor the lap swimming. Always misplacing your key fobs? Download the Key Ring or Pocket Binder app to scan all your key fobs so they are in one device and you can use your smartphone to scan the fobs to get into the pool! The cost for misplaced key fobs are $10/fob, or if the entire family has lost their fobs and you need them replaced, the fee is $25. Pool Closures Please be aware that the pool facilities may be closed due to inclement weather, lightning or special events. Please watch Facebook for up-to-date posts on pool closures due to weather or lightning, as these type of temporary closures are typical during the summer in Colorado. As a reminder, the following will result in loss or suspension of swim privileges: • Homeowner association assessment balance is not current • Failure to comply with any policies or procedures of The MNC including, but not limited to, The MNC Pool Facility Rules • Misuse of pool facility and/or equipment


JUNE-AUGUST 2017

Meadows Neighborhood Rules and Policies Did you know the Board of Governors has adopted rules and policies to help govern how the community is operated? It includes items such as animal nuisances, architectural control process, fine process, how to submit an architectural application to paint your home, and when your privileges can be suspended and you not be allowed to utilize the community amenities, and much more information that all residents should be knowledgeable of when living in The Meadows. To find the guide in its entirety, go to www.Meadowslink.com, MNC Info tab, Document Center, and then All MNC Rules and Policies. If residents are experiencing excessively barking dogs, dogs off leash, roaming cats and other animal nuisances, you report the issue to the Town at 303-663-6100 or you can go online at www.crgov. com and click the link, “report a concern�. With it being summer, the recreational vehicles will be out and about, just remember they are not allowed to be parked at your home for more than 24 hours in a 7 day period. They are permitted to be driven to your home to load and unload only, and should never spend the night on the neighborhood street. If your recreational vehicle is sited on the street for more than 24 hours in a 7 day period, you will be given one notice, after that, each and every time it is seen within the next year, parked on the street in the neighborhood, you are given a fine automatically to your account, there is no cure period and you are considered a repeat offender, and so the escalated habitual/repeat offender fines apply. You will have the right to appeal the fines, but if staff has photographic evidence that your recreational vehicle is a frequent visitor and you exceed the amount of time it is to be in the neighborhood, it is highly unlikely the fines will be waived. The pool rules are also listed in the guide. Safety breaks are usually taken on the hour, every hour, for 15 minutes, so that restroom breaks, reapplication of sunscreen, and rehydration occur. The following will result in the loss or suspension of swim privileges: homeowner association assessment balance not current, failure to comply with any policies or procedures of The MNC including but not limited to all the pool facility rules, misuse of pool facility and/or equipment, harassment of other users or MNC personnel, or obstructing lifeguarding personnel from completing job requirements. Another pool rule that is often unknown, is that flotation devices are not permitted at The MNC pools, such as water wings, rafts, or swimsuits with built in flotation rings or devices incapable of self-correction of buoyancy are not allowed. Be sure to check out the entire guide, all about vehicle parking, what is acceptable and what to avoid. If you have any questions, you can always call staff at 720-476-4006.

Lending Libraries are Installed at Taft House and Grange as a Boy Scout Eagle Project Zach Polson, a Meadows Neighborhood resident, and Castle View High School Sophomore, and member of Boy Scout Troop #86, has successfully installed a free Little Library at The Grange and Taft House. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share, and it is all on the honor system. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community, and we are hopeful they are used often so that we can add more in the future. The libraries are both registered with the Little Free Library, and there are over 50,000 registered Little Free Library book exchanges in all 50 U.S. states and over 70 countries around the world. You can donate books to the Little Free Libraries as well, they just have to be able to fit into the little house to be protected from the weather. Zach also installed raptor perches in two different areas within the community for our large raptors to perch and enjoy our community as well. Thank you Zach for all your hard work to make these projects come to fruition!

Home & Garden Frequently Asked Questions

Meadows Parking Restrictions It is that time of year when our thoughts turn to enjoying the great outdoors with our kids and campers. So let us review one of the Meadows Parking Restrictions that is most frequently asked about. Q: Can I park my RV in the street or my driveway all summer if I plan to use it every weekend? Even if we change the question to be, can I park my spare house in the street when I’m not using it? A: The short answer is NO. You have 24 hours in a 7 day period to load/unload your RV and get out of the neighborhood. No portion of the Neighborhood Company Area, including, but not limited to, the streets, driveways, or fire lanes, unless specifically designated by the MNC, shall be used as a parking, storage, display or accommodation area for any type of house trailers, camping trailers, boat trailers, hauling trailers, boat or boat accessories, trucks larger than three-quarter (3/4) ton, any truck with a topper that extends above the height of the cab of the truck, golf carts, all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, or recreational vehicle or equipment (collectively “recreational vehicles”), except as a temporary expedience or emergency. Temporary expedience allows for you to prepare your RV for use or storage no more than 24 hours in a seven day period. What does this mean? You can bring your RV to your property on Friday night, load it and get it ready for a few hours, leave and go on your weekend adventure, come back on Sunday and unload and clean it and then move your recreation vehicle back to its regular storage space. It cannot sit at your property for more than 24 hours. Q: My car has a flat tire, can I leave it parked on the street until I can get it fixed? A: No abandoned or inoperable vehicles of any kind shall be stored or parked on the property unless fully screened from view in a garage. An “abandoned or inoperable vehicle” shall mean any automobile, truck, motorcycle, van, trailer, house trailer, camper, recreational vehicle or other device for carrying passengers, goods or equipment which has not been driven under its own propulsion for a period of two (2) weeks or longer, or which does not have installed within it an operable propulsion system, or which does not have a current registration and license plate sticker, or which has one or more flat tires. If the MNC determines a vehicle is abandoned or inoperable, it shall provide written notice that the vehicle has been deemed abandoned. Notice may be delivered personally to the owner or by affixing notice to the vehicle. If the vehicle remains abandoned or inoperable for seventytwo (72) hours after delivery of the notice, the MNC may seek removal of the vehicle at the owner’s expense. No portion of real property within the Neighborhood Company Area, including, but not limited to the streets, driveways, or fire lanes, unless specifically designated by the MNC, shall be used as a parking, storage, display or accommodation area for any type of commercial vehicle. Currently, the MNC has no “designated parking or storage areas” for commercial vehicles except for garages. Any vehicle that meets one or more of the characteristics in either Table 1 or Table 2 is considered a commercial vehicle and may not be parked or stored anywhere in the Neighborhood Company Area, except in garages. This prohibition on commercial vehicles will not be enforced against contractor or service vehicles parked as a temporary expedience for loading or unloading, delivery or emergency; provided, however, that this 30

JUNE-AUGUST 2017

exclusion does not extend to an Owner/resident who parks a commercial vehicle at home. Table 1 Types of Vehicles Considered “Commercial Vehicles” (regardless of vehicle payload capacity) 1. Box Vans, Box Trucks 2. Tow Trucks 3. Trucks without a Bed 4. Buses 5. Tractor Cabs 6. Tractor Trailers 7. Vehicles with two or more rear axles 8. Hazardous Material Transport vehicles 9. Taxi Cabs 10. Limousines Table 2 Other Commercial Vehicle Identifiers 1. Any vehicle having a manufacturing payload capacity greater than three-quarter (3/4) ton 2. Any vehicle that has commercial markings or signage that exceeds 50% of the vehicle’s visible surface (excluding the roof, tires, wheels, hood and windshield) 3. Vehicles with racks, ladders or panels designed to carry equipment other than personal, recreational or equipment for physically impaired 4. Vehicles with scrolling lighted signs and exterior warning lights Q: I have an electric car, is it permitted? Can I run an extension cord over the sidewalk to charge my car? A: Extension cords connected to a vehicle parked in the driveway serving a Dwelling Unit are permitted, but no vehicle shall connect to power cords or other utility lines that extend beyond the driveway that serves the Dwelling Unit. You cannot utilize an extension cord to plug into any vehicle, unless it is in your driveway, so it cannot be ran over your sidewalk and impede the crosswalk for pedestrians. Q: As long as I move my vehicle so that it is not sitting in the same place, is it legal to keep the recreational vehicle or trailer at my property? A: Rotation of vehicles owned by the same Owner/resident or periodic movement of a vehicle, either under its own propulsion or by other means, for the purpose of circumventing these Rules and Regulations, will not exempt an Owner/resident or vehicle from the provisions of these Rules. Q: My vehicle is in need of repair, and if I need to jack it up and work on it in my driveway, is that acceptable? A: No maintenance, repair, rebuilding, dismantling, repainting, or servicing of any kind of vehicle, trailer or boat may be performed anywhere in the real property within the Neighborhood Company Area, including in the driveways, on the streets, or in fire lanes. Owners/ residents may perform such maintenance and repair activities in their garages upon vehicles that they own, lease, or utilize, provided that no disruptive noise or noxious odor results and that Owners/residents properly dispose of any materials resulting from such activities. This does not prohibit washing or polishing vehicles. Please see the MNC website, www.Meadowslink.com, click on Document Center and then the MNC Community Rules and Policies, the parking regulations are in their entirety in this document. Please note that if your recreational vehicle is in violation for more than 24 hours in a seven day period, you will be provided a Notice a Violation. If the alleged violation of parking your recreation vehicle in the neighborhood for more than 24 hours in a seven day period occurs a second time within a one year period, the violation is considered a repeat violation and fines can be placed on your account immediately by the Board of Governors.

New Homeowner Orientation Welcome to The Meadows! Welcome to The Meadows! To all our new Neighbors, you are invited to a New Homeowner Orientation at The Grange on Tuesday March 7 at 6:30 pm. Come learn more about your community in a quick and informal way. If you have any questions, please call Taft House at 720-476-4006.

Join us for Taking the Pain Out of Painting On June 17 at 9 am, at The Grange, The Meadows Neighborhood Company will present the Things You Should Know Before You Paint, what we like to call Taking the Pain Out of Painting Seminar. This event is provided at NO Cost for Meadows residents. The Meadows Architectural Guidelines require that homeowners seek approval from the Architectural Review Committee prior to any exterior modification to your home. This seminar has been created to streamline the process toward approval. With the assistance of some Paint Professionals and the wonder of technology, we promise to take the PAIN out of PAINTING. Please plan to join us, we ask that you pre-register for the class by calling 303-814-2358, or register online at www.meadowslink.com. If you have received a Friendly Reminder that painting is required, or if it is just time for a color-change, then this event is for you. We will review the Exterior Modification Application and the process for ARC approval. Staff will be available with the Original Approved Color Scheme database for easy review of the developer approved combinations at the time of construction. For those who just want to repaint existing colors, it is a brief process. The presentation will include an overview of APPS available to assist in making the project easier…as they say there is an app for that. Color ID uses the iphone camera to determine color. Similarly, Color Grab is designed for the Android devices. There is also Color Snap that is a registered application for Sherwin- Williams Paints, or Color On-The-Fly is another option to help determine the existing color on your home. Let technology simplify the task. There are not a set of color schemes pre-selected for your neighborhood, but the colors selected and submitted must be aesthetically pleasing and consistent with the style and character of your neighborhood. Tips on coordinating warm color selections that maintain community harmony with the featured finishes of the home like stone, brick, and stucco will be provided. You can register under the Events tab of the community website www. Meadowslink.com or call The Grange at 303-814-2358.

Maintaining “The Meadows” in The Meadows

na•tive, n. 1. Originating, growing, or produced in a certain place or region; indigenous. Native grasslands are characteristic of the semi-arid Front Range region. These attractive grasslands typify the diverse regional aesthetic while requiring far less maintenance. Native grasses are adapted to the local annual precipitation. Such native areas provide a range of important ecological services, including: erosion protection, water quality improvement, run-off reduction, while serving as natural aesthetic features for passive recreation and wildlife habitat. As you may have noticed, the native grass is growing as it is intended, and it may appear to some that it is not being maintained and needs mowed. The mowing schedule of the native grass is only once per year. As you may know, most of The MNC open space is nonirrigated native grasses areas, per Town requirements. The best method of maintenance for these native grasses is to let them grow. By doing this, it provides the best opportunity for the grasses to reproduce and become a thick stand which will choke out weeds. Part of the mowing standards for native grass areas does include a strip that is mowed behind homeowner fences called a beauty band, where homes abut the native grasses, as well as along sidewalks, leaving the larger areas in between untouched. The weeds that inevitably pop up in the native grass areas are routinely treated and then removed, as consistent control of weed competition is essential for establishment and maintenance of the native grass areas. Regular control of noxious or troublesome weeds is an essential annual activity in native grassland plantings. The MNC currently maintains the landscaping in the neighborhoods, such as Suncatcher, Patina, Harris Grove and Feathergrass open space as well as Briscoe Ranch, Watercolor, Fuller Bluff, Weathervane, Morningview, Plainsong and Sweetwood, Upland Park, Gambel Oak, Leafdale and New Haven. However, the Town of Castle Rock also has space that winds through most of these neighborhoods. If there are questions or concerns about the maintenance of the open space in these neighborhoods, please contact the staff at 720-476-4006. Annual maintenance activities for native grasslands differ greatly from those required for conventional turf at your house. Native grasslands are also slower to establish. The native grasslands will improve if not mowed an allowed to naturally seed in the fall. In addition, seeds can remain dormant until an adequate precipitation event. The first heavy precipitation event should initiate growth in native grasslands, even in mid to late summer. Unmowed native grasses add color and visual interest in the fall and winter, particularly after a snow. In addition, standing dead vegetation acts as mulch-protecting the seeds as they germinate in the spring. THE MEADOWS AT CASTLE ROCK 31

Beautiful Yards in The Meadows

The residents of The Meadows are really doing some great work on their front yards, and we wanted to share what we are seeing out there! Summer flowers are in full bloom, and the green, lush front lawns are beautiful. We even are showcasing some beautiful xeriscaped yards—often times, xeriscape is considered zero landscaping, however, it is much different than the perception, less water use but a xeriscaped yard does require ongoing maintenance and upkeep. Keep up the beautiful landscaping, something for all of us to aspire to have front yards just like these!
