We recognize these are trying times for our community. We want everyone to stay healthy and are following the recommendations given by the State of Colorado and Tri-County Health. 

We have cancelled all events at the clubhouse that were scheduled and are not taking new requests at this time. We will let the community know when they can reserve the clubhouse again and will be reaching out to renters who already reserved the clubhouse during this time of social distancing to reschedule for a later date and receive a refund.  

Community Playgrounds – Closed

Tri-County Health issued a public health order on March 25th closing all playgrounds until April 17th. This includes both our new park playground and the playground next to the clubhouse. The restroom at the playground also closed during this time.

Next Board Meeting

Thursday, April 9th at 6:00 pm
this will be a call in meeting open to everyone

Call in # 720 707 2699
Meeting ID: 863 247 373

We still need to do our part to maintain the value of our community and, in that vein, owners are still expected to keep their homes in a sightly manner. However the board understands that some home owners maybe experiencing hardships due to the closure of businesses and the current state of affairs. 

The board is attempting to balance its duty to enforce the covenants with being sensitive to completing home improvements with the social distancing policy in place. The board will be discussing how we can help our community at our upcoming meeting. We will be partnering with AMI on their recommendations and will communicate the changes to enforcement as the situation develops. 

These measures would be temporary and based on the current social distancing policy. Once this passes, AMI would go back to routine enforcement in accordance with terms of our enforcement policy.  

Pool and Clubhouse

We are operating under the assumption that we will still be able to open the pool this summer and have worked hard to get the new heater and filters installed this month. We have also installed new lighting in the pool restrooms. 

The Clubhouse is currently closed.. However, we are still moving forward with the speaker installation for the clubhouse and pool. Lifeguards are being hired and our aquatics coordinator will be introduced to you as we get closer to opening day!  

Don’t miss out on summer time fun and make sure to register your key fob for the 2020 pool season. To register  CLICK HERE.

Playground Closures

We hope all of our residents are staying safe and healthy during this time.  Tri-County Health issued a public health order this morning which will close our neighborhood playgrounds (both at the clubhouse and the new park).   The order is as follows:

All public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a single household or living unit are prohibited, except for the limited purposes as expressly permitted in Paragraph 5.  Nothing in this Order prohibits the gathering of members of a household or living unit.

For purposes of this Order, individuals may leave their residence only to perform any of the following “Essential Activities.”  However, persons at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and people who are sick are urged to stay in their residence to the extent possible except as necessary to seek medical care.  Essential Activities means:

To engage in outdoor activity individually or in groups of no more than 4 persons, provided each individual complies with Social Distancing Requirements as defined in this Paragraph 5, such as, by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking, biking or running. Social distancing requirements for outdoor activity apply to those people from different households. For purposes of outdoor activity, public parks within TCHD’s jurisdiction should remain open to the public to engage in walking, hiking, biking, running, and similar outdoor activities but all playgrounds, golf courses, tennis courts, basketball courts, picnic areas, and other similar areas conducive to public gathering shall be closed.

This order is issued through April 17th.   Please take care during this time and stay safe.

Easter Event Postponed

After much discussion, the Wheatlands Board of Directors and the YMCA have decided to postpone the April 4th Easter Event.

With information changing every day as it pertains to
COVID-19 the board has decided it is the best thing for the community to not hold the Easter Event which was originally scheduled for April 4th.

The hope is to be able to still have a spring event early to mid May, where the community can get together and enjoy an egg hunt and community gathering at our new park.

Thank you for your understanding on this matter,

Wheatlands Board of Directors and the YMCA
