Community Event Recap




We had a fun evening full of lots of laughs and great beer from Breckenridge Brewery and amazing food from Chocolate Moose Catering. A very special thank you to Kevin Ferguson for presenting all the Breckenridge beers and teaching us all about them and the brewery. And also a special thank you to Nancy Gass from Chocolate Moose catering for pairing a delicious 5 course menu. Each course to be paired with a different beer. Everything was delicious and very well paired together. Thank you to all that attended this fun and relaxing evening!

Community Information



Arborist Update

Bob Howie, our district arborist, attended our January meeting to give us an update on our trees this year. We had to plant 90 replacement trees in 2021 but under his care in 2022 we only had to replace 3 trees. Saving a huge amount of money for the district! He discussed the high PH in our soil and is going to be reviewing our tree list for acceptable trees to plant. He will be recommending trees to add or remove trees based on what will grow in our soil and his observations from our neighborhood trees. We look forward to sharing the updated list with the community as it becomes available.  


Urban Soccer Fields

Over the last few months, we had the design completed and a consultant has been hired to work with the City to approve the fields. We have been given the site elevations and renderings from our consultant. We hope to go out to bid and hire the construction crew to flatten the field and prepare it for the turf soon.  



We have hired a new website designer who will be maintaining our website going forward. We look forward to keeping the site user friendly and sharing all the neighborhood news, covenants and events on the site. Visit anytime at www.wheatlandsmetro.org


Recreation Center Update

Kimberly Armitage attended our January meeting to give an update on the recreation center. After the pipe burst, they are partnering with the Wheatlands Park and Recreation Authorities insurance to make all the repairs. We appreciate the community’s patience as the building is repaired and thankfully it didn’t impact our main gym equipment or studios. The gym has been busy in January and the YMCA is working on a new marketing strategy to increase revenue. Of the 900 eligible homes in Wheatlands, 737 homes have enrolled in their family memberships!  It’s great to see so many of our residents enjoy the gym! If you haven’t had a chance to enroll yet, just swing by the front desk and they will get you set up.  


Oil and Gas Leasing

Attached is a FAQ that was given to the board from Steven Louis-Prescott. He is a third-party attorney who attended our December board meeting to discuss mineral leasing. During that meeting the board voted no to accept a lease agreement at this time. We encourage residents to make their own decisions regarding their individual mineral rights.  









2022 Covenant Enforcement and Design Review Update


We had an amazing year for 2022 and we wanted to take a moment to thank you for all your hard work to keep the Wheatlands community looking beautiful.

We had 152 New Design review applications come through for the committee to review for the improvement’s homeowners are doing. Thank you, committee members, for your quick response in getting these all reviewed.

For covenant enforcement we had a total of 459 violation created and we had even more resolved violations. Thank you again for all your hard work keeping up the community and the home values.


Snow Removal Reminder from the City of Aurora


Snow and ice on sidewalks can be slippery and dangerous, not only to mail carriers and other delivery people but also to senior citizens, children, disabled people and the public in general.

As a resident or property owner, it is your responsibility to keep city sidewalks adjacent to your property free and clear of snow and ice, even though the sidewalks may be behind or outside the rear and side fences and adjacent to any street.

Snow and ice must be removed within 24 hours after a snowfall ends, and 48 hours after a snow emergency is declared by the city.

To ensure pedestrian safety, code enforcement officers respond to citizen complaints concerning lack of snow and ice removal from sidewalks. An Administrative Fee, $25 for single-family and $50 for all others, will be imposed after 24 hours and again after 48 hours, if the snow is not removed. The city’s contractor will then be requested to remove the snow and/or ice, and the property owner or financial institution will be billed for all costs incurred.

Chronic Violators will also be issued a Summons to appear in Aurora Municipal Court. Officers are not required to give a warning notice prior to issuing a snow ticket.


To make a complaint about a property that has not shoveled, contact Access Aurora at 303.739.7000.


To ask questions about the snow removal ordinance, contact the Neighborhood Support Division at 303.739.7280.
