Happy Halloween


Walk Safely

  1. Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.
  2. Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.
  3. Make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  4. Always walk on sidewalks or paths.
  5. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars.

Drive Extra Safe on Halloween

  1. Slow down and be especially alert in the neighborhood.
  2. Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.
  3. Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.
  4. Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.
  5. Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances.
  6. Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours.

Keep Costumes Both Creative and Safe

  1. Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors.
  2. Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.
  3. When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.

Freeze Warning

The weekly forecast is calling for lows near and below freezing. This is a reminder to take care of your sprinkler/irrigation system to avoid pipes from freezing and bursting.

Shut off the water supply to the lawn irrigation systems before the thermometer hits freezing temperature. The main shut-off valve for your sprinkler system needs to be protected. Make sure it is wrapped with insulation, a blanket or somehow sheltered from subzero temps.

Community Park

Community Park Update October 2018

The community park at Wheatlands Parkway and South Jamestown Way is continuing to move forward.  We submitted the plans to the city of Aurora planning committee last month and the city gave us feedback on the park design.
We have submitted for second review this week and are waiting to hear back from them.  The next step is to go through public works review.  The city asked that we complete the planning step before submitting to public works which did set our timeframe back.  Once we submit it to public works it is a 6-8 week process.
After we have received approval from public works we can start the bidding process for building the park.  Since we had these delays, we are realistically looking at the park starting construction towards the beginning of the year.
We can’t wait for the community to enjoy the park and appreciate your patience as we continue to move forward with the project.
