Please assist the District as it cleans up after this week’s Spring snowstorm by removing any tree branches and fallen trees from your yard that may have fallen on the right-of-way brick fence or wooden fence-lines that border parks. The district’s landscape maintenance crew will be out to continue the clean up by removing fallen, broken branches and leaning trees. The process will prioritize roads, right-of-ways, park sidewalks, then open fields and grass areas in that order; this debris will be piled, then mulched and removed. Please stay safe and don’t attempt to remove branches on your own. Thanks for helping us keep the parks and facilities in good repair by reporting any damages! Call us at 303-482-1002 or 303-751-0192 or email us.

As you might be aware, a new fence has been constructed at Peakview Park. The District was not consulted on the construction of the fence. The District reached out to the City of Centennial and property owner, but due to the fact the fence falls on private property, the District’s perspective was not considered.
This has been one of the snowiest year’s we have had in a while in Colorado! We are seeing snow stick around longer than in previous years. The Board is actively researching cost analysis and priority areas. Please contact the district manager for questions: 303-482-1002.
The District wishes to thank all who participated in the online and paper survey at the special walk-around and public special meeting on February 22nd at the park.
The results of the survey can be found here: Survey Summary
Updates on the plan options are forthcoming, so stay tuned.
Thanks for your input! The CCVPRD Board of Directors
Please contact District Management to access the code to unlock the goals stored at all parks. Damaging or cutting locks or fencing to access pool, tennis courts, goals, or other properties is illegal and will result in action or removal or access or equipment. Please respect your parks and neighbor’s property by keeping ball play within fields and not next to fences and homes. Direct all lacrosse goal practice into the center of fields. You may need to chase the balls further, but will keep neighbors and property happy and safe!
Pool registration is available HERE
As we continue to try to increase communications among residents and reduce expenses, regular meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm at 9300 East Belleview Ave., St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, in Greenwood Village, CO.
The only exceptions: There will not be regularly scheduled meetings in February, July, and December.
The District is separate from the homeowner’s associations in the area which are managed by different boards and which have different functions within the community.
This map shows the ATV route that JBK does for snow removal. Also, CCVPRD does various spots on Orchard as well as high traffic park areas.
Arapahoe County has plow routes on their website that anyone can view: https://www.arapahoegov.com/DocumentCenter/View/3322
Wildlife and you ….
The Board would like to remind all resident to not feed wildlife at any park! Peanuts and sunflower seeds will be cleaned up to help keep animals and humans safe. Adding human food to the mix will only threaten the animals and shared-use of the park with humans!
What to do: If you find any human food left out at parks, please contact the District’s management or landscaping company so we can help get it cleaned up. If you see someone leaving food out for animals, please share this important information with them–we all want to help keep these parks and landscapes safe and healthy for all!
