GATES
SECURITY GATES ON 
HERITAGE HILLS PARKWAY
The loops that control the opening/closing mechanisms at the Lincoln gate were damaged during the concrete portion of the asphalt/concrete work.  There is a possibility that this could also happen at the Yosemite gate once the concrete repairs start in this area.
 
Doors West, working with JR Engineering, has determined the best course of action is to not repair the damage to the loops until the project is nearing completion as further damage could be done when the asphalt is removed and replaced along Heritage Hills Parkway.  Once the asphalt/concrete work is nearing completion, the loops will be repaired and the timing on the gates will return to normal.

National Night Out Ice Cream Social
     Over 200 neighbors gathered on a very hot August afternoon for fun, fire trucks and delicious Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream! South Metro Fire was on-site for hands-on fire truck adventures and ambulance exploring and discovery.  The kids also enjoyed sidewalk chalk, hula-hoops, and street painting!  Thank you to everyone who attended National Night Out.  A special thanks to all the volunteers who planned the day and South Metro Fire for making it another great event for Heritage Hills!

GardenGARDENING
Fall is Bulb Planting Time!

Even though there are many bulbs to choose from, daffodils are a great choice for the garden.  They provide excellent colour in the spring landscape, especially in those unirrigated areas.

When purchasing bulbs, pick bulbs that are firm and large and without any rotting spots.  Then store the bulbs in a cool, dry place until it's time to plant the bulbs in September.

When you get ready to plant the bulbs please follow the directions provided.  If you don't have any directions then plant as follows:

1.  Prepare a bed by digging all of the soil out of the planting area to a depth of about 6 inches.
2.  Add about 1/3 by volume of compost to the soil that has been removed from the planting bed and mix the compost in well.
3.  Place the bulbs in the bed with the pointed end up and the flatter, somewhat flattened end down.  Plant the daffodils twice as deep as the height of the bulb i.e if the bulb is 2" tall from base to the tip, then dig the planting bed 6" deep.  Place the bulb 4" below soil level and backfill with the prepared soil.
4.  Water well for a few weeks and then wait till spring for a showy display of flowers.

MEETING DATE CHANGED FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONERS' VOTE ON REZONING  
     If property is rezoned a 4-5 story apartment complex will be built overlooking Heritage Hills residents and common areas-soccer field, basketball court, playground, tennis courts and pool.

     At the August 1, 2016 Douglas County Planning Commission meeting the Planning Commission voted to deny rezoning of Planning Area 20, Parcel A2.

     The next step is for the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners to hold a Public Hearing regarding the rezoning.
That Public Hearing is now scheduled for:
Sept 13, 2016 @ 2:30pm,
Phillip Miller Building, Castle Rock 

If you want to express your opinion during the Public Hearing and impact the Board of County Commissioners decision, please plan to attend the Sept 13 meeting.
