Flag and Sign Policies Changed
Recent Colorado Legislation mandates changes
At the end of the 2021 legislative session two bills, HB21-1229 and HB21-1310 passed regulating what HOA’s can allow in their communities in reference to flags, signs, and artificial turf.
Our official updated policy was published in September 2021. In the Conservatory you may display (at any time) only one small (24 x 18) non-commercial sign in a yard at any time, one 3 x 5 flag (hung on a pole on your home) and one garden flag.
Artificial turf is allowed in back and side yards, but still requires approval by the Design Review Committee.
Rules and Regulations can be found here - https://www.conservatoryhoa.com/covenants

CLUBHOUSE REOPENS FOR RENTALS
Starting Thursday, March 17th you can reserve the clubhouse. All reservations must be made in person at the clubhouse Thursday during office hours. Please review the rental process and Rental Agreement.
POOL ACCESS by Cell Phone
The HOA has made upgrades and purchased software that will allow owners to access the pool via a cell phone rather than having to use the key card. Key cards will continue allow access as well. This new system will also be used when the clubhouse is available for rentals.
Please take a moment to fill in the information in the link below as it will help GREATLY with getting the software populated with your information.
If your home is a rental - DO NOT FILL OUT THIS FORM. There is a process to turn over owner access to tenants. If you would like the form sent to you to turn over that access, please send me a separate email with your name and address within The Conservatory..

Underdrain Maintenance 2021 Summary
DRC construction reported a summary of findings from their 2021 inspection. The intersection at Jericho and Girard received further study and the intersection will not need to be excavated. The cleanout is functioning properly and flowing as expected.
The schedule for 2022 has been established with the CCTV work to happen in the first and second quarters of the year and then all the required cleaning and jetting will be done in the third quarter. It is projected that approximately 40% of the lines will require jetting and cleaning. This schedule should reduce both labor, equipment and water costs.
