Board Opening

Do you have time to help our community and get involved?  We are looking to fill two vacancies on the Wheatlands Metropolitan Board.  The duty of the board is to maintain the community appearance, assist with community projects, and represent your neighbors when making board decisions.  The position requires you to be available during the evenings to attend monthly board meetings and special meetings as they occur.   You would also be expected to volunteer additional time as needed for board projects and community operations.  If you or someone you know is interested please submit a letter of interest to lwalker@denverymca.org by August 5, 2019. 
 
If you do not want to be on the board but want to get involved there are many opportunities for residents to join a committee. The board is looking for help on our Covenant Committee and our Social Committee.  If you are passionate about covenants and making our community beautiful we encourage you to volunteer for our Covenant Committee.  The committee will partner with AMI in regards to covenant enforcement and help with the appeals process.  In addition we are looking for volunteers on our Social Committee.  Social committee members partner with the YMCA and volunteer their time to help plan, communicate and attend the social events for the neighborhood.  We appreciate your consideration of the open positions and can’t wait to hear from you!  


July Community Park Update

The park is really starting to come together and exciting new features are being installed in July. Once ID Sculpture comes on site you will see the park really start to transform. Feel free to swing by and take a look next time you are over there.

A few updates since June:

  • Goodland completed all the utility work for the restroom.
  • They have begun excavation for the remedial fill for the shelter.
  • They put up forms for the playground curb walls.
    • The final portion of the wall will be poured once the boulders are placed on top of their pedestals.
  • Materials have arrived on-site for the drainage system in the playground area
  • While ID Sculpture is installing the climbing wall features, Goodland plans on building the Park ID sign, completing the curb ramps and constructing the shelter.
  • Concrete flatwork will begin the 1st week of August after ID sculpture has completed the climbing wall.
  • The shelter permit was issued.

Thank you to our community for all your support of the community park project!
