January 3, 2018 Association Meeting

The Elk Creek Highlands/Meadows Property Owners Association will meet at 7 p.m., Wednesday, January 3, 2018, in the basement of the Association Building located at 86 Elk Creek Drive, Bailey.  We will discuss our grant application status for augmentation water costs, bathroom remodeling plans for our building, and January postcard mailing.  For more information, contact Karen Ellis at 303-514-8620, or CUNColorado@aol.com.

Grant decision has been postponed again

We just got word that the decision to approve or deny our grant money request regarding augmentation water for our ECHPOA pond by the Park County Board of County Commissioners scheduled for this week on Thursday, December 14th, in Fairplay, has been “cancelled until a later date.”  We will let you know as soon as we hear of a reschedule date.  Meanwhile, we are still accepting money donations to help with augmentation costs, letters of support to help influence grant decisions, and partners willing to give us additional grant money so that we may be able to reach the total amount needed to save our pond.  Checks can be made out and sent to ECHPOA, 86 Elk Creek Drive, Bailey, CO  80421.

Help Save Our Pond, Contact a Commissioner!

Call or send an email to the 3 commissioners listed below that are deciding whether or not to approve our grant.  DO IT TODAY!  Let them know how important our pond is to our community!  Topics to discuss with the commissioners could include:

Their decision will be made on December 14th!  COME SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!  Meeting begins at 9:30 am, 501 Main Street, in Fairplay, CO.
