August Board Meeting

8/11/2015 at 7:00

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Building on the success of the July 17 Volunteer Work Party, which was augmented by a Board work day and additional work by a neighbor, we are planning another fun-filled Volunteer Event wherein we all get to pull weeds.  If you wish to participate from 9:00 AM until noon on August 10, you can be assured a fine time with like-minded Discovery residents.  For this event, we have selected a property with a lot of spurge weed in the front yard.  This noxious weed must be removed, lest it spread to adjacent properties.  Please participate wearing long sleeves, good gloves, and adequate sun protection.  Bring a weed digger.  You may have sore muscles later but you will have the satisfaction of working with Discovery neighbors to create a better community.

To participate, E-mail to:  board@discoveryhoa.com stating your desire to participate, giving your name and phone number.

You will receive a confirmation telling you the location of the activity.

We will schedule another property makeover in August, and ask again for resident participation via an e-mail announcement.  Please consider volunteering a few hours.  You will find it well worth your time.
 
"DNA"  is the Discovery Neighbor Assistance, program funded by your voluntary contributions.  The program uses resident and Board volunteer labor and outside purchase of goods and services to assist deserving Discovery residents who need a little help.

Discovery is a unique development, located within the Colorado Springs city limits, a few minutes west of I-25 and just South of the Air Force Academy. It is within Academy School District 20, one of the highest rated school districts in Colorado. Discovery was developed in the 1970s and consists of approximately 130 acres of wooded land. To preserve the beauty of the area, streets were designed to follow natural contours and miss special trees, clumps of scrub oak, and rock formations. Covenants were written to provide control over design, quality, and environmental compatibility of the homes. As a result of these covenant protections, today Discovery is a beautiful and mature community.

The Covenants are administrated by the Discovery Homeowner’s Association and is self-managed by a Board elected from the full membership of the 332 property owners within the sub-division. All property owners may nominate and vote on themselves or other members to serve on the Board at the Discovery HOA annual meeting. Monthly meetings are open to all members. Minutes from the last annual meeting and the current budget are available on this website.

In addition to nice neighbors, Discovery has an abundance of Colorado’s signature wild life. Mule deer , bear, fox, rabbits, coyotes, raccoons, bobcats, and the occasional mountain lion all call Discovery home. Also, there is a large bird population including owls, magpies, wood peckers, humming birds, and many more, depending upon the season.

We look forward to meeting and getting to knowing you as friends and neighbors.
