Park Update

The park is transforming! With the formation of the climbing wall and the sculptures being brought onsite you can begin to see the vision and how amazing this playground will be for our community.

* ID Sculpture is on-site and forming the climbing wall and insects.

o The climbing wall features an ant hill, tree roots, earthworm and leaf climber to challenge kids as they grow to climb up each different section.

o The insect sculptures will be placed inside the park with the spider web at the top level of the climbing wall.  The spider will attach to a spider web climber.
* The drainage system in the playground area has been installed.

* The forms are up for the boulder footings and they will be poured. 

* Goodland has completed rough grading the site.

* The shelter columns and seat walls were poured.

* The boulders are set in place and are ready for review.

* Goodland has begun pouring the playground curb.

* They are hoping to complete the flatwork at the top of the playground then begin work on the lower portions of the playground.

* Goodland has begun work on the sign at the corner of the park.

* Colorado Hardscapes will be available late August.

* All the play equipment has been manufactured and is being stored until ready for installation.

* The shelter is being built offsite and is nearing completion and should be ready to ship within a week or two.

* The playground curb along the northeast portion of the lower playground has been poured.

* All the lighting equipment has arrived.

* The water connection to the restroom has been completed.

 It is really starting to come together and we appreciate the communities support of this project.

New Update to the Design Review Process

Are you planning on making some home improvements or updates to your landscaping? Or are you someone who needs to repaint or replace your roof? Then we have exciting news for you, The District will no longer be charging a fee for most Design Review Applications!! The 50.00 fee will only be charged for Home additions such as adding on an extra room, garage or sunroom and Full front and backyard landscape plans.

As some of us have experienced, if we wait too long it can be hard to find a painter,
landscaper or construction firm that isn’t already booked out for months. Now is the perfect time to plan the work you want to do on your home or yard and meet with contractors. Once your plans are finalized and you have a time frame for the work, submitting your application and supporting documents to the Design Review Committee is the next step.
