Bears Are Back!
Posted on Jun 19th, 2020
The bears are back! Thursday night (June 18) on Wild Rose, a bear got into and messed up a neighbors garbage. On Sunday, June 28, at 8 AM a black bear was seen near Oak Leaf Ct.
Please keep your trash where bears can't access it. 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 in 2019 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.

Don't Forget the Scoopers for Your Poopers!
Posted on Nov 14th, 2019
We have received numerous complaints of dog walkers not cleaning up after their pets.  Please be aware that not only is it not neighborly and inconsiderate of our residents and their guests but it is also against city codes with fines for noncompliance.  The codes cover all roadsides including those by empty lots.  
So please pick up after your pets and encourage others to do so as well.  Let's all together strive to keep our neighborhood clean and pleasant.
Thank you.

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
