Denver Water Traffic Notice

 Dear Resident: 

Denver Water will be conducting upgrades to the Hillcrest Facility entrance off Happy Canyon Road starting Monday, June 22. We will be installing a new driveway entrance and new facility gate to the property. 

When: The contractor is scheduled to begin work on Monday, June 22 for approximately two weeks. Working hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday – Saturday. 

Where: Crews will work within the public right of way and on existing utility easements on the Northwest corner on the Hillcrest facility and on Happy Canyon Road. 

What to Expect: 

  • Traffic impacts: The Northbound lane on Happy Canyon Road will be closed during working hours and traffic will flow one-way through the Southbound lane. Flaggers will be present to direct traffic. 
  • Sidewalk impacts: The sidewalk along Happy Canyon Road will also be closed in the area of construction. Flaggers will be present to direct bikes and pedestrians. 

We appreciate your patience during this project. Throughout the project, we will provide progress updates via the social media platform Nextdoor. If you have additional questions, please contact Denver Water’s Customer Care center during regular business hours of 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

Customer Care can be reached at 303-893-2444. For after-hours water emergencies, please call 303-628-6801. 

Thank you,

Hillcrest Water Update 6/19/2020

Project Update 6-19-2020

Updated Timeline for Project

The heavy equipment work, back fill of the tanks and earth moving will be completed midfall 2020. Unfortunately, because of project interruptions and Coronavirus we had some delays this past spring, but we are back to normal operations and have significantly increased work pace in the last month.

  • Stockpiles and Heavy Earthwork: The northwest stockpile is almost gone, and we continue to work on relocating the southern pile to the east side of the site near I-25. The southern stockpile will be moved to the back on the site by the end of July.

 

  • Fencing: Permanent fencing is currently being constructed along Happy Canyon Road and is expected to be completed by the end of July. As panels of the fence are erected, we will be replacing the blue mesh covers again to mitigate dust from the site.

 

  • Potholes: We are in the process of acquiring permits to have the potholes in Happy Canyon Drive repaired, and expect to begin work in the next three to four weeks. Pothole repair should take a day or two and will entail some minor traffic impacts.

 

  • West Access Road:  The construction of the new West access gate will begin Monday, June 22, and should take approximately two weeks to complete. Flaggers will coordinate pedestrian, bike, and car traffic for the duration of the work. The Northbound lanes will be closed, and flaggers will allow alternating use of the southbound lanes by traffic going in both directions.

 

  • Landscaping: Due to the ending of the spring planting season June 15 and the unfortunate time we went through with Coronavirus delays, landscaping restoration will now be completed this Fall planting season.

 

  • New facility roads: We will begin to pave new facility roads and parking lots inside the facility grounds in July. We estimate the work will be completed by Fall.

 

The photo of the site below shows the enormous size of the project and the vast amount of work that is being done.

Dust Mitigation

The heavy dust is anticipated to decrease as the semitruck deliveries of backfill dirt for the tanks is complete. That said, there are many areas around the site where earthwork is going on. We have multiple water trucks on-site spraying roadways and anywhere work that creates dust is going on. Additionally, we pay extra attention to wetting the sections along Happy Canyon Road and the back of homes along South Hillcrest Drive.

We continue to sweep the street on Happy Canyon Road three times a week and will continue to sweep on additional days as needed.

Heavy Equipment Storage

In an effort to reduce the amount of disturbance from noise and fumes, we are moving overnight storage for heavy equipment to the east side of the site closer to I-25.

Upcoming Main Replacement Project

In a project unrelated to the work going on at Hillcrest, starting in late July, Denver Water contractor, Iron Woman, will begin replacing water mains that intersect Happy Canyon Road between South Eudora Way and ending at South Ivanhoe Lane. The work is part of Denver Water’s program to replace aging infrastructure, but because it will impact traffic in the area, we wanted to let you know it was coming.

Work Hours

We will continue to work on Saturdays through the summer, with personnel arriving at 7 a.m. and equipment use beginning at 8 a.m. We do not anticipate working any Sundays for the foreseeable future.

Weekday working hours remain from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.

We appreciate your continued patience and understanding while we work to upgrade this important part of your water distribution system.

COVID-19 Update #2

Canyon Club Condos

COVID-19 Update – 2

As we all work our way through these unprecedented times, things are on a constant change.  The Board is constantly reviewing updates and what it means to our Association. Keep in mind we are still under the Safer at Home.

Maintenance continues to sanitize the mailroom and laundry rooms at least twice a day.

The office will begin opening on June 15th.  It will be open from 9 am to noon on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Only one person will be allowed in the office at a time and they must wear a face mask.  If you enter without a face mask you will be asked to leave.  Unless you really have to go to the office for something, we recommend and encourage you to contact the office via phone at 303-757-8527 or via email at canyonclubcondos@gmail.com

Amenities, this has been a topic of much discussion by the Board. Based on the guidelines set forth by the state of Colorado on June 5, 2020, our Association is not able to meet these guidelines and standards without hiring additional employees, which is not within our operating budget at this time. 

Below are the guidelines as set forth by the state of Colorado on June 5, 2020.

Pool:

  • Limit the pool to 50% capacity, up to 50 people, whichever is fewer.   
  • Encouraged to establish a reservation system to space out visitor attendance, aid in contract tracing if exposures occur, and to allow for equitable use of the facility.
  • It is strongly encouraged to limit pool activity to lap swim. If you permit open swim, make efforts to reduce in-pool interactions.
  • All frequently touched surfaces and shared objects such as handrails, chairs, and tables should be disinfected every hour between use.
  • Surfaces in restrooms and locker rooms should be routinely cleaned every hour.
  • Provide physical cues or guides (for example, lane lines in the water or chairs and tables on the deck) and visual cues (for example, tape on the decks, floors, or sidewalks) and signs to ensure that staff, patrons, and swimmers stay at least 6 feet apart from members of other households, both in and o of the water.

This includes any pool open to the public, including  but not limited to, municipal pools and homeowner association pools.

Fitness Center:

  • Limit indoor facilities to up to 25% capacity, or 50 people, whichever is fewer, per room, so long as people can stay 6 feet apart from each other. 
  • Use a reservation system or use pre-existing electronic capacity monitoring systems if feasible to space out and limit participants gathered at one time.
  • Discourage use of any shared equipment, and ensure all equipment is cleaned and disinfected in between each use.
  • Maximize ventilation by using fans and opening windows, wherever possible.
  • Provide access to hand sanitizer.
  • Request staff members and patrons wear face coverings when they can do so safely.
  • Post signs for employees and customers outlining good hand/respiratory hygiene and safety measures being taken. Signs should be in languages customers will understand. 

The Annual Meeting is being planned for July 21st.  This will be a virtual meeting via a platform using computers.  All the details will be announced through emails and a new mailing from LCM.  The Budget planning meeting is under discussion but will probably also be a virtual meeting.  No dates have been set for the budget meeting.

Maintenance continues to work on projects around the community along with their daily duties.  Please social distance and allow them to perform their work.

We want everyone to remain healthy and safe.  Please social distance when outside and wear a face mask.

Spring Pruning

Spring pruning will be on June 11th and 12th. If you have any shrubs that you would rather prune yourself please take an orange ribbon from the mailroom and tie it to the shrub. The orange ribbons will let grounds crews know NOT to prune.
