More Moisture in May for Colorado

Colorado snowpack level statewide has increased a whopping 73% since April 15th!  We are now currently 189% of average compared to 116% in April.  Levels this year continue to be better than both 2012 and 2013, but not as high as 2011.  The recent Colorado moisture is wonderful, however, now remember to take any flash flooding warnings seriously.

Help keep our community beautiful

spring cleanupIf you see trash along your road or in your neighborhood, please take the time to pick it up and throw it away.  If you are at the pond, please use the trash containers for your trash, cigarette butts, and fishing line.  Please be considerate of others who also might be walking where you have walked by disposing of your dog waste.  Doggie bags are available in the black tubes located along the pond.

If every person just took a few minutes each week to dispose of trash, we could easily keep our community beautiful!  Thank you for your time and contribution!

ECHPOA Engravers Now Available

ECHPOA now has 2 engravers available for the communityburglar to use!

Jeff DeBerry suggested we use an engraver to mark tools, electronics, and other valuables for identification should these items get stolen.  He also suggested taking pictures of these items to keep for insurance purposes, and to aid law enforcement in the recovery.

You may check an engraver out for a week at a time with a $5.00 returnable deposit from Ken Perdew, 303-838-7768.
