June 2017 - New Ordinancestop

New ordinances issued June, 2017.

2017-R-14: DEAD, BROKEN, DISEASED OR INSECT INFESTED TREES

Willow Bend Redevelopmenttop

After pursuing several avenues with the Developer, Southgate Water and Sanitation District (the District) and the City of Centennial to secure a continuous, 8’ high solid wall between the commercial development and Willow/Briarwood Streets, no easement variance and/or easement vacation can be obtained across the 30' wide District easement. As a result, a 12 foot wide access gate/removable panel will be required. This requirement will not affect the remaining sections of wall along the Willow/Briarwood Streets or at the adjacent property lines.

At our September, 2016 meeting, the Board discussed, aesthetic treatment, gate vs. panel, locking mechanism and the community desire to eliminate access between the commercial and residential uses.

Walnut Hills Civic Association Board meetings are open to the public. Please attend our regularly scheduled meetings to hear first-hand the WHCA Board discussions, to provide public input during the ‘Concerns from Residents’ agenda item and hear the board determined course of action.

WHCA Board meetings:
2nd Thursday each month at 7:00pm

Two New Centenial Ordinancestop

Please refer to the City of Centennial Public Hearings, Ordinances & Resolutions page for a complete listing.

A new ordinance approved by the City Council on 5 Dec. is intended to prevent obstruction of pedestrian and vehicular traffic on Centennial's streets and sidewalks. The ordinance provides for a fine of up to $1,000 for violators who place (or allow to accumulate) items on public sidewalks & roadways, or who allow materials on private property to encroach on or above public sidewalks & roadways.

This means, among other things, that the ordinance prohibits obstructing sidewalks with trash containers, landscape materials, trash, debris, etc. or placing snow and ice on them (i.e., when shoveling/clearing walks & driveways). This does not make snow shoveling mandatory, but you need to shovel onto your property! The practice of placing snow and ice on public streets is prohibited by this ordinance. Shoveling into the street often creates an ice block or dam in the street and can be dangerous. Additionally, the ordinance prohibits items on private property from "encroaching" on sidewalks & roadways: 8' above in the case of sidewalks, and 15' for roadways. A typical example of this would be a portable basketball hoop, which people often leave on the sidewalk or street, or extending over the sidewalk or street or your bushes & trees.

What should citizens do with their trash containers, bagged leaves, bundled materials and large appliances which are to be picked up by trash haulers? The ordinance permits these items to be placed on public property (for example at curbside) as long as the items are NOT on the sidewalk or other pedestrian way, and as long as they are not there for over 24 hours. Nor can you park a vehicle to block the sidewalk.


Another important new ordinance approved by the City Council on 5 Dec. refers to Sight Triangles, at all street corners. They must remain free of anything that could block the view of a vehicle turning the corner, with certain, very specific exceptions.

Traffic Studytop

As part of the I-25/Arapahoe Interchange Environmental Assesment, a traffic study was conducted in May, 2011 to obtain baseline data regarding existing traffic volumes and cutthrough traffic circulation within the Walnut Hills neighborhood.

The purpose of the study was to quantify the amount of traffic cutting through the Walnut Hills neighborhood during peak commuting hours. A copy of the 30 page study is available here (pdf).

The Garbage Mantop

At its December, 2011 board meeting, the Walnut Hills Civic Association agreed to provide information to members and potential members regarding a discount offered by the Garbage Man, a family owned trash hauling service based in Parker. Bob Rhoades, attended our meeting to let us know of the company´s´ discounted rates. The discount increases as more Civic Association members sign up with their service. The Garbage Man´s starting rate is less expensive than many service providers out there.

Board members asked lots of questions about the company and its service and concluded that this announcement would be beneficial to the community. There are trash trucks in our neighborhood almost every week day. They add to the noise and air pollution and tear up the street. Wouldn´t it be nice to have one provider one day a week? If you are interested in benefiting the community and your pocketbook at the same time give the Garbage Man a call at 720-842-4558. The collection day is Friday; they bring the containers back to the house and provide recycling every other week.
