Community Information

Landscape Maintenance

Year to date we have had 15 snow events. Cox is in charge of snow removal for our district sidewalks and clubhouse. They are also contracted to complete the mailbox pads after a snow event. The City of Aurora is in charge of snow removal on the streets in Wheatlands. We have our dog stations and trash cans checked weekly during the winter months. Ornamental grasses will be pruned in March based on ground conditions. Cox has also begun trimming tree branches that are hanging over onto the street on district property.

Park and Recreation

Our lighting crew has been on site at the Urban Soccer Fields to begin to connect the lighting. The light poles already exist and we are just looking to have them connected so we can play longer this summer and utilize the courts into the night.

Pool Maintenance

The Pool Doctor is working to fix the leak in the zero entry pool. We are also contracting them to replaster the pool once finished. They have reassured us that the work should be done in time for the pool opening this summer.
