Neighborly News Assessment Payment info In accordance with Section 8.8 of the Community Declaration, Annual Budgets; the Board of Governors for The Meadows Neighborhood Company (MNC) has adopted the 2018-2019 Annual Budget. Effective July 1, 2018, the MNC quarterly assessments are increasing and will be $215 per quarter, there are no increases for Tyler and Stewart Park Alleyway - they will remain $49 per quarter and the Tyler Park Shared Driveway assessments will remain $45 per quarter.  Stewart Park Shared Driveway Assessments of $65 per quarter will also remain the same for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. The Board has been able to adopt a responsible budget without increasing dues for the past two years. This proposed increase, from a quarterly $205 to $215 is a 5% increase which we found necessary to fund the operations, the reserve fund, our loan for the Taft House and the general increases in costs over the past two years. The budgets are included in the mailing and a detailed budget of the operating, capital and reserve accounts can be found at www.meadowslink.com.  The newly adopted summary budget can also be found on page 6 of this newsletter. As of July 1, 2018, assessment payments for all homes in The MNC are $215 and are due quarterly. Assessments are due quarterly-they cannot be paid monthly, or late fees will be assessed. There are various rates for HOA assessments depending on the neighborhood you live in.  Assessments are $215 per quarter for the MNC Master Association for each property whether a single family, paired home, carriage home, or townhome.  They are due January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1.  Late fees are assessed on the 11th of the month in which they are due in the amount of $30.  If your home is within the following neighborhoods, additional assessments are due: • Upland Park - $215 plus an alley assessment of $49 per quarter • Tyler Park - $215 plus an alley assessment of $49 per quarter and/or a shared driveway assessment of $45 per quarter • Stewart Park Carriage Homes - $205  plus an alley assessment of $49 per quarter and/or a shared driveway assessment of $65 per quarter    • New Haven -  All the homes on New Haven  will pay $205 per quarter to the MNC and the sub-association payment will be paid directly to the sub-association, Advance HOA Management Inc. Chrissie Brown 303-482-2213 ext. 280 • The Villas at Stewart Park - $215 plus $49 for alleyway assessments.   These homes are within a sub-association and also pay assessments to  MSI Debbi Marr 720-974-4152.  • Morgans Run - $215 per quarter payable to the MNC.  These homes are within a sub-association and also pay assessments to the Morgans Run HOA.   Please contact Carrie at BRC Real Estate at 303-495-2212 There are several ways to pay your assessments: • In person at MNC Admin Office-Taft House, or at The Grange • 24/7 after-hours drop box located at The Grange to the left of the front doors or Taft House on the south side of the Docket Room. • Online at www.Meadowslink.com, download the ACH form, complete and submit with a voided check to have your assessments withdrawn on the fifth of each quarter the assessment is due, or you can pay by credit card ($11 fee for credit card payment through the website) • Payments can be mailed to the lockbox and sent to: MSI, PO Box 173307, Denver, CO 80217-3307 If you utilize an online bill payment service, please update your account number and payment address so that your payment will be processed correctly.

THE MEADOWS AT CASTLE ROCK 5


Neighborly News 2018-2019 Budget Approved

GOT TRASH? We have a contract with Waste Management for continuation of our trash services here in The Meadows Neighborhood Company. 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 are needed at a property. There will be a special leaf and yard waste pick up offered in the Fall 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.

Meadows Parkway Reconstruction Starting in late-May, the Town of Castle Rock is investing in a smoother drive along Meadows Parkway. The road is 30 years old and in need of repair. Between US Highway 85 and Prairie Hawk Drive, crews will remove the concrete and replace it with asphalt. The Town intends to maintain one lane of traffic in each direction. Still, you might consider an alternate route: North Meadows Drive, Coachline Road or Prairie Hawk Drive. Before this work begins, a right-turn-only lane will be added from North Meadows Drive to Butterfield Crossing Drive. For more information on this project, visit CRgov.com/MeadowsParkway. Questions? Contact the Town at MeadowsParkway@CRgov.com or 720-724-2022.

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 email us at tswearingen@meadowslink. com 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 and 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. Just a reminder that trash collection is every Friday and recycling is every other Friday. For a calendar on pickups, see our website www. meadowslink.com If your pickup was inadvertently missed, or to request a bulk pickup, please call 303-797-1600, or you can report a missed pickup at www. wm.com. If you are setting up service for the first time, we make it easy, just visit www.meadowslink.com. Under the Resource tab, the drop down menu provides the trash important information page. You can complete the brief on-line form to establish service. Additionally, should you require repair or customer service assistance from Waste Management, please visit www.wm.com. The site is very user-friendly and provides 24/7 access. Under the Customer Service tab click the Report service issue or submit request.

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. 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 longer a cure period and you are con-

sidered 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.

Health and Fitness WEEKLY YOGA – EVENING Looking for a yoga class to get energized while helping you build strength and flexibility? Fitness instructor Jasmine Rinehart will be at the Taft House to teach a unique yoga class. Using a Power Yoga format, this fast-paced intense practice combines breath-linked movement to improve coordination and balance and increase range of motion and flexibility. It is an essential component of any cross-training fitness plan when you are striving for that “one extra degree”. Dates: Tuesdays June 5, 12, 19, 26; July 10, 17, 24, 31; August 7, 14, 21, 28; September 4, 11, 18, 25 Time: 5:30 pm-6:30 pm Age Requirement: 16+ Cost: $40 Resident/$45 Non-Resident (per month) Registration Deadline: One week before the start of each month Location: Taft House Special Note: Must pre-register for entire month-long class. Please bring your own yoga mat. BEGINNERS YOGA – DAYTIME CLASSES Yoga is an important component to any “workout” or “fitness” program for individuals of all levels. Athletes and beginners alike benefit from improved coordination, increased range of motion and flexibility and endurance. Studies show tremendous value in yoga as part of a “cross-training” and injury prevention routine. Often times the fast pace of a “flow” class can be confusing or too advanced for beginners. Without a foundation of the fundamental poses, students may be confused or even risk injury. This class breaks down the most common poses (ASANAS) from the ground up, in a slower-paced format. Students will learn proper alignment in order to help protect the body and at the same time, learn to make adjustments or modifications in their own body to get the most benefits. This class is perfect for beginners or yogis looking to enhance their practice and anyone who desires a deeper understanding of alignment. Dates: Tuesdays; August 7, 14, 21, 28; September 4, 11, 18, 25 Time: 10:30 am-11:30 am Cost: $40 Resident/$45 Non-Resident (per month) Registration Deadline: One week before the start of each month Location: Taft House Special Note: Must pre-register for entire month-long class.

Free Exterior Painting Class Offered for Meadows Residents on June 6 Let’s face it; walking into a paint store with the thousands of paint colors to choose from can be a daunting task. Staring back at you are the brightest shades of colors with little guidance on how to put them together. Ultimately, in the larger scheme of things, streetscapes, blockscapes and elevations are some of the most artful, foundational elements of a livable community. Join staff at The Grange on June 6 at 6 pm for a training to take the thousands of options at the paint store and make them customizable to your home. Bring your home photos, paint chips, and ideas for guidance on the perfect exterior palette. The MNC Architectural Guidelines require homeowners to seek Architectural approval for new and existing house painting projects. Colors must coordinate with the stone, brick, stucco or other exterior materials on the home and must be compatible with the color palette in your neighborhood. Please remember, the main body colors cannot be the same as homes adjacent to yours or the homes’ located directly across the street from yours. A home “across the street” is any home with a portion of its front property line across the street from a portion of your front property line, or your backyard property line. Along curves and in cul-de-sacs more than one home may be “across the street” from your home. The color matrix of the home must be maintained. For example, if you have a home with two body colors, you are not permitted to change to only one body color. Homeowners desiring to have their color selections submitted for approval, or need guidance on the perfect exterior palette choices, please bring the completed Architectural Review Application, as well as developed photos of the current exterior colors on your home and developed photos of the homes adjacent to, across the street, and directly behind you with a drawing indicating where each of the homes exists with relationship to yours. Due to limited space, pre-registration is required to attend this class by calling The Grange at 303-814-2358 or Taft House at 720-4764003. If you have received a notice that your house is in need of painting, attending the class will provide you a 30 day extension of your paint project. 28

Pick Up After Your Dog: ‘There is No Poop Fairy’ Colorado is known as a dog-loving state, but with more dogs moving in, there is a big problem piling up. “A lot of dog owners think that the poop ‘just goes away,’ Not only is dog feces unpleasant to look at and smell it can also make people and other dogs sick. Dog waste contains harmful bacteria and parasites such as E. coli, giardia and salmonella that pets or people can pick up if they come in contact with it. Bacteria from dog waste can also contaminate groundwater and bodies of water such as creeks, rivers and lakes. People who swim in contaminated water can become sick. Dog waste also does not biodegrade as quickly as other animal waste. Because of the type of food that dogs eat, dog waste can take up to a year to decompose. The more hard waste left behind, the more it accumulates.

Home & Garden Frequently Asked Questions 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: 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? Your RV can be in the neighborhood for no more than 24 hours in a 7 day time period. Please note: You cannot run an extension cord over a pedestrian walkway to charge your recreational vehicle. 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 f lat 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 seventy-two (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 exclusion does not extend to an Owner/resident who parks a commercial vehicle at home. 30

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 it is 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 of 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.

YOUR Community FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

School District News Graduations, swim team and grilling out with neighbors - summer is literally just around the corner. It’s hard to believe that it is May and we will soon say goodbye to our graduating seniors in the Douglas County School District. As our seniors and their families look back at all they accomplished in school over the last 13 years, I am certain many fond memories will come to mind. After all, it was just last year that my daughter Celeste graduated from Castle View High School. My wife, Amy and I, look back and don’t know where the years went. We are feeling the same way with our daughter, Nina, who is about to wrap up her freshman year at CVHS. I am so proud to serve as the DCSD Board of Education Director for District B, which includes the Meadows, our vibrant and growing community. Despite this growth, our school district is facing significant funding challenges. DCSD is home to 68,000 students and 89 schools. As a Board of Education member, I want to ensure that each and every single student in our district has access to the best possible education. We must provide excellent education resources and programming, enhance the security of our schools, provide additional mental health support, and increase career and technical education opportunities. We know, as your elected Board of Education, we must have the best teachers for our students. We need to have the means to provide competitive pay to retain and recruit excellent teachers. Two challenges face us in Douglas County: there is a current teacher shortage, not just in Colorado, but nationally. Also, we must be able to compete with neighboring districts so we have the best teachers possible in front of our students every day. Did you know that our average teacher salary is $17,000 less than Cherry Creek and $13,000 less than Littleton? That is simply unacceptable. DCSD has many aging school buildings that must be updated. Due to funding shortages, some maintenance issues have been deferred. While we also do everything we can to ensure our school build-

ings are safe, there are some schools in desperate need of items such as updated heating and cooling systems, roofs and more. So how do we find ourselves in such a difficult financial situation? This is a question I often get asked, especially given that we live in Douglas County - one of the wealthiest counties in the country. The short answer is that school funding is incredibly complicated. DCSD has worked hard to cut spending and the Board makes sure that as many dollars as possible are allocated to classrooms. However, state education funding is limited, and the addition of new homes and funding sources such as marijuana money are not providing DCSD with the additional funding needed to significantly increase teacher pay or to catch up on building maintenance. Adding to the problem is the fact that our neighboring districts have been passing bond and Mill Levy Override ballot initiatives over the past 10 or so years. As a result, Cherry Creek School District receives $1,635 more per student in Mill Levy Override funding than DCSD. When you take that difference and multiply it by the number of students here in Douglas County, it equates to more than $100 million annually. That is an incredible difference that leads to market disparities, especially when Cherry Creek can offer teachers much higher salaries. We are just beginning the community discussion about our funding needs and challenges. If you want to join the conversation, I strongly encourage you to check out https://www.dcsdk12.org/ funding to learn more. Despite our funding challenges, we are about to send a few thousand graduates out into the real world. Whether their next step involves college, the military, or a career, I know they are all going to be success stories. How am I so certain? Because they are proud DCSD graduates and have been set on the right path by their loving families and amazing teachers. I am honored to be a volunteer, a father and a member of your DCSD Board of Education. Thank you for trusting us with your most precious resource - your children. Anthony Graziano is the DCSD Board of Education Director for District B.
