Snow Information

The snowy season is quickly approaching!

PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO REMOVE HOSES FROM EXTERIOR SPIGOTS BY TONIGHT TO AVOID FREEZING PIPES CAUSING DAMAGE.

Here is a reminder on other snow info:

  • Snow removal will begin once the accumulation is 2” on sidewalks, and 3” on drives, as determined by the contractor.

  • Streets are property of the City of Ft. Collins, and will not be plowed by Bath.

  • Snow removal is typically done within 24 hours of cessation of snowfall, when smaller accumulations are predicted. When large accumulations are predicted the contractor may within it’s reasonable judgement begin operations prior to the cessation of snowfall if more than one visit is anticipated.

Transportation Update from the City of Fort Collins

Here is the latest on transportation within Bucking Horse from the City of Fort Collins:

  • The connection of Nancy Gray to Sharp is complete and open.

  • The quiet zone at the crossing has been established. RR engineers are no longer required to blow their horns (they can if needed for safety reasons).

  • We’ve added signage at Miles House / Nancy Gray for side street traffic, and we’re removing some parking close to the intersection on Nancy Gray to improve sight distance for vehicles exiting the apartment complex.

  • We’ve added a speed hump on Nancy Gray just west (south) of the Miles House intersection.

Things they are working on:

  • Working with PSD on bus stop locations for children that have to cross Nancy Gray

  • Working with Liberty Common on their circulation routes and evaluating potential new cross walk locations.

  • Evaluating the intersection of Nancy Gray/ Miles House to determine approach control type (2 way stop or all-way stop), and potential for a crosswalk.

We have resolved this issue, and these forms should all work now. We will consistently test them to make sure these submissions are reaching us.

IF YOU HAVE SUBMITTED A FORM and not heard back - PLEASE RESUBMIT. We want to know your concerns or questions so that we can properly deal with these issues.

Labor Day - Delayed Trash Service Reminder

Trash service will be delayed by one day in observance of Labor Day on Monday, September 2nd. Thank you for understanding!


A message from Waste Management:

In observance of Labor Day, your pickup schedule will be delayed by one day following the holiday. Please put carts out for service one day later than usual. Remember to position your cart four feet from any other objects, including fences, mailboxes, parked vehicles and other carts, so that we can service it safely. 

Safety is critical to Waste Management every day of the year. The holiday is a good time to remind children to give our trucks plenty of space to operate. Encourage kids to watch safely from the front step. Help them understand what it means to stay 15 feet from a truck.

Please remind children never to try to touch a working trash truck, even if it’s stopped. They should never try to add something to a cart while it’s being serviced. If a ball (or pet!) disappears under the truck, they should not chase it. Get the driver’s attention and wait until the driver indicates it is safe to approach the truck.

If you are hosting an outdoor celebration over the weekend, remember to designate a separate container to gather bottles and cans. Place it near the trash but clearly label as recycling only (“Recycle empty bottles and cans”). Keep food, liquids and trash out of the recycling.

Thank you for doing your part to help keep our community safe, clean and green! 


See below for their recycling news bulletin as well. Thank you!

If you are new to the neighborhood or lost your tag after last summer, you need to contact the HOA to have a new one mailed to you. Please include your address and the name of the person the HOA has on record as owning the home in order to get your tag.

The annual neighborhood garage sale will be held Saturday June 15th from 8am-1pm.

Update: Neighborhood Park on Miles House

Here are a few updates provided by the City’s Parks Department regarding the future neighborhood park that will be built along Miles House:

  • Letter of Intent has been signed by the City and provided to Gino Campana regarding purchase of the land, which will occur in 2019

  • Depending on the City’s budget, construction is slated to start in late 2021, but could possibly be pushed to 2022

  • It is designated a “Neighborhood Park”, which means:

    • Hours: 5am - 11pm

    • Will have turf area/playing field

    • Drop in use only (so no programmed sports like soccer leagues, etc)

    • No major lighting

    • Age appropriate playground areas - one for toddlers and small children, one for older kids

    • Shares parking lot with child care center; parking is also allowed all along Miles House

A special HOA subcommittee was convened in February to offer additional feedback and ideas to the City for amenities at this park. Those ideas and feedback have been submitted to the City and confirmed to be considered in the planning of this future park. As the construction date draws closer and the budget is finalized, the City will host a series of neighborhood meetings regarding amenities at the park and construction timelines and implications to traffic. Notices of those meetings will be shared in the future.

Update: Proposed Child Care Center Approved

On Thursday April 18th, the Fort Collins Planning & Zoning Board approved the major amendment allowing the construction of the Sunshine House Child Care Center on Miles House.

More details and minutes from the meeting will be available soon on the City’s website. Questions about the approval process and what happens from here can be directed to the City resources listed at the link below.

https://www.fcgov.com/cityclerk/planning-zoning

Because the project is will be constructed on privately-owned land that is not maintained by the HOA, the HOA management company does not have any specific information about construction timelines, traffic implications, or other issues related to the child care center. For those type of questions, please contact the developer, Bellisimo Inc.

Planning/Zoning Board meeting - proposed daycare

The next Planning/Zoning Board meeting will revisit the topic of approving the proposed day care center on Miles House. You can find all details about the meeting and the agenda at the link below. The location of the meeting, how to send in comments ahead of time, and other details are also available via this link:
