COVENANTS CHANGE:  The ballot measure to increase our Discovery HOA dues to $90 per year passed, 189 "YES" and 44 "NO."  233 of our properties voted (71%) and 189 of those voting (81%) approved the dues increase. 165 was the minimum number of "YES" votes required for the measure to pass. As a result, Discovery HOA 2024 annual assessments will be $90 due on 1 May, 2024. Please plan accordingly.

FIREWISE EDUCATION MEETING: The 2024 Firewise education meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 24th from 5:30-6:30 at the Rockrimmon Library. If you haven't had an on-site evaluation or attended a similar education meeting in the past 5 years, please plan to attend. The CSFD will present important wildfire planning and prevention information for our heavily forested area, as well as guidance for the upcoming Firewise Chipping sessions (June 24 - July 5, and September 16-27). Remember, you MUST register for one or both chipping sessions if you want to have your yard debris picked up and chipped. If you plan to wait until then to dispose of debris from our recent snow and wind storms, please store them in an unobtrusive location away from the street or sidewalk. Thanks.

DUMPSTER DAZE ARE BACK: Based on the demand last year, we will provide two roll-offs at 7143 and 7147 Wintery Loop to collect non-hazardous household waste  from 8AM to 7PM on April 20th and 21st. 


WATERING RESTRICTIONS:  Watering restrictions are eased between October 15 and May 1 each year.  Remember, while trees, shrubs and grasses are dormant during late fall and winter, they still need moisture and our snowfalls are frequently not sufficient to avoid permanent damage. Please remember to drag your hose or get our your watering can during winter periods of warmer weather.  Details of the water conservation program can be found here

LOCKING MAILBOXES: We have no more locking mailboxes and there is currently no plan to purchase and offer more at a discount. 

SIDEWALK OBSTRUCTIONS: As mentioned earlier, some of our mature shrubs (particularly junipers and pines!) extend over our sidewalks and thus interfere with clear passage. City Ordinance 3.4.103 requires:  "Every owner and occupant of real property within the City shall keep the public sidewalks which abut or are adjacent to their real property, or public sidewalks located upon real property subject to a public easement or right of way, in a clean condition free from projections and obstructions across the surface, debris, litter, or dangerous conditions not involving the structural integrity of the sidewalk."  We will be surveying our Discovery sidewalks in the near future to identify properties that need to be reminded of this civic obligation.


We are aware of the presence of a few storage sheds in Discovery. Some were approved…and some “magically appeared.”  No further violations of ARC Approval will be permitted. Any future sheds discovered to have been constructed without ARC approval will be subject to relocation or removal at the owner's expense.  Please review the information on sheds in our FAQ area before you decide if you need a shed in your yard.
