Forge Road Detour Through Dawson Ranch
Posted on Sep 1st, 2019
Good news:  The City contracted with Avalanche Excavating to reconstruct Forge Rd. north of Shiloh Dr. 
 
Bad news:  We learned Friday that all traffic from Evelyn Dr. and Dawson Ranch will be detoured / routed through Dawson Ranch north to Mariposa. 
 
For approximately 2 months, this will roughly triple the northbound / southbound traffic between Tanner Pkwy and Mariposa.
 
SAFETY CONCERNS:  
 
Drivers - PLEASE be careful and drive slowly through the subdivision.  
 
Property Owners - PLEASE be very careful with children and pets.  There will be a lot of traffic going both north and south (simultaneously).

Bears Are Back!
Posted on May 31st, 2019
 
The bears are back! Please put out trash cans on the morning of the pickup day and not the night before. Leaving trash cans out overnight attracts bears. They will tip over containers, open them (bungee cords are no protection), and spread trash everywhere. Do you want your neighbors to know your food preferences, hygienic habits, and correspondence because they had to pick up your trash?
 
Also, don't leave food outside. An aggressive bear that attacked a hiker near Aspen on Memorial Day this year was killed by wildlife officers. The bear's stomach was full of birdseed. The officers say the bear likely lost its natural fear of people by eating from backyard bird feeders. If you care about bears, put away the ground level bird feeders until the winter. There is plenty of natural food for the birds during the summer. 
 
 
Thanks,
Dawson Ranch HOA
 
 
Radon Mitigation
Posted on Apr 13th, 2019
Per the April 4, 2019 radon meeting and according to the Environmental Protection Agency, the state of Colorado has areas of high levels of radon as shown on this map: Colorado Map of Radon Zones
 
Because of the large preponderance of granite and that is where radon emanates, your health could be affected. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in nonsmoking adults. 
 
There is an excellent testing lab in Colorado Springs run by Jim Burkhart. He will provide you the test kit and do the evaluation for $30. He is also willing to provide a few names of certified companies that do a good job of mitigation. Mitigation normally runs around $2,000. Jim's info is below:
 
Radon Measurements Lab
1675 W. Garden of the Gods Rd.
Colorado Springs, CO 80907
