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
WINTER PARK HIGHLANDS RECEIVES NATIONAL ATTENTION FOR ITS FIREWISE EFFORTS
Check out the article published on the national Firewise website, including a photo of our second cistern near completion (more on that below). Also see our WPHA Firewise Case Study - it is amazing how much we have accomplished in the last nine years. Thanks to board member Karen Bishop for authoring the study.
USAA OFFERS REDUCED INSURANCE RATES
Here's another benefit of WPHA's Firewise status - reduced insurance rates. Details on our Firewise page.
GRAND COUNTY FIRE RESTRICTIONS LIFTED AS OF SEPTEMBER 1
On September 1, 2016 at 2:30 PM, the Grand County Board of County Commissioners voted to suspend the fire restrictions that had been in place for unincorporated Grand County. These restrictions had been in place since July 15, 2016 and have consistently been evaluated since that time. Due to cooler temperatures and low relative humidity, the fire danger in the County has decreased, which has allowed for this change in restriction status.
