2021 Chipping Program -September 2021 update. The program is back on!
The HOA has arranged for Rod’s Tree Service to bring their chipping equipment through the Highlands during the week of September 14th to clean up any slash that has accumulated on your lots. For those who choose to participate, Rod will bill each home/lot owner $200 per hour in 15 minute increments. You would need to mark your piles of slash and identify their location on the attached form. You do not need to drag the slash to the road if you don’t want to but be aware that the further from the road your slash is, the more time it will take them to drag it out. Complete the attached form and either scan it and email to Bob Colosimo at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to:
PO Box 1388
Fraser, CO 80442-1388
Forms are due by September 4th so please don’t delay in sending it in. you can call the number on the form for any specific questions you may have for Rod. This is a great opportunity to clean up our properties without having to haul the slash to a central location.
County regulations regarding camping on residential lots:
The Grand County Zoning Regulations are specific re: camping on residential lots of less than 35 acres and are enforced.
The following is excerpted from the adopted Grand County Zoning Regulations:
(g) One (1) travel trailer, camper or motor home as defined by the Grand County zoning for use during the construction of an owner built single-family dwelling. The travel trailer, truck camper, or motor home must be entirely self-contained, or must be connected to the well and septic, or water and sewer service for the property on which the single-family dwelling will be located. This accessory use is allowed for one (1) continuous year. The time period for this one (1) year allowance will begin with the Grand County Building Department’s footing inspection. This accessory use is not available until an approved building permit has been issued. Only one (1) continuous one (1) year period is allowed per building permit for a dwelling unit. At the end of the one (1) year period, the travel 50 trailer, truck camper, or motor home must be removed if construction has not been completed, or the building permit will be rescinded. No extensions of this time period will be allowed.
The underlying reasons for the regulations are, of course, health & safety of the owners and adjacent property owners especially re: sanitation. A porta-potty on site is inadequate.
So, regardless of the Subdivisions bylaws, etc. camping is prohibited by the county.
