Winter Park Highlands Association
Winter Park Highlands Association is a voluntary association offering membership to all property owners in Winter Park Highlands, Tabernash, Colorado. Your membership supports WPHA in providing valuable services and making our community a better place to live. Every property owner in the Highlands faces challenges that arise from living in the mountains, from clearing snow in the winter to protecting our properties from fire danger in the summer. Facing such challenges on our own can be daunting. Being a member of the Association allows each of us to benefit from collective strength. Join us and be a part of the future of the Highlands!
CONSTRUCTION OF CISTERN NO. 3 IS COMPLETE
Work on Cistern No. 3 located at the corner of Blue Jay and Elkhorn is done. Details on our Firewise page. As you know, we are $30,000 short of funds needed to pay the rest of the bills for construction of this cistern. Here's some good news: our past President and steadfast friend and supporter has snared an additional $8,000 from the Bureau of Land Management (the agency that granted us funds for construction of both Cistern No. 3 and Cistern No. 1) to help us defray our remaining expenses on Cistern No. 3. Thanks, Bob! Our matching donation challenge is still open - see our Firewise page for details.

TIPS FOR BEING "FIREWISE" ALL YEAR LONG
TO ALL WPHA PROPERTY OWNERS
This is a reminder that during the winter snow plowing season
the following County and State laws apply to all of the roads in Winter Park Highlands
1. It is llegal to park on roads on a snow routes including WPHA Commons cul-de-sac GCR 8564, which is a County Road.
2. It is against state law to leave snow piles on roads. This has become a problem in the Highlands where some people clear their driveway and leave snow piles on roads after county plows have come through. It may be days before plows come through again to clear the roads.
All residents are strongly urged to heed these regulations for the safety and convenience of everyone. There have been some problems recently, including parking at WPHA Commons, that have hampered County snow plow operations.
USAA OFFERS REDUCED INSURANCE RATES
Here's another benefit of WPHA's Firewise status - reduced insurance rates. Details on our Firewise page.
