The May 2020 Annual Meeting has been Postponed

The Annual Meeting originally scheduled for May has been postponed, with the hope of rescheduling in June 2020. We are closely monitoring how current health issues are evolving with regard to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will reschedule the Annual Meeting as conditions allow.

Playground Closure

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and in accordance with governmental recommendations, we ask that residents respect the following guidelines for use of the playground area:

Anything that involves physically sharing equipment is closed until further notice.  For example:

    • Swings
    • Slide
    • Playground equipment
    • Sports equipment
    • etc.

Limited use of the parking lot and blacktop will be permitted if:

  • 6 foot spacing between people is respected
  • Children under of the age of 18 are supervised by an adult.

Please use common sense neighbors.  We are in the middle of a pandemic and need to fight the spread together.

If there are any questions, please contact a Board member or email the Board at:

Notice of Special Board Meeting: Thursday, March 19th – 7:00 pm @ Colden Fire Co.

Notice of Special Board Meeting:
Thursday, March 19, 2020
7:00 pm @ The Colden Firehall (8448 Gutekunst Rd.)

Purpose: At the last BOD meeting on March 2, 2020 it was agreed that a special BOD meeting was necessary to have a work session specifically for the next budget. This is a “Special Board Meeting” specifically for the next budget since the BOD April meeting would be inadequate for notification to the neighborhood, prior to the May 9, 2020 Annual Meeting (as a 30 day notice must be given). Since this is a BOD meeting, the public is welcomed to attend.

Agenda: New Budget Work Session 

Live where you play. Play where you live.
