Here are some of the questions frequently posed by newcomers to the Village.
What is the pet policy? The covenants state that each home is restricted to not more than two pets. Pets are required to be leashed in the Village unless the animal is under voice command and playing a game such as “Fetch.” All pet residue must be picked up immediately for obvious health and safety reasons, as well as the consideration of other residents and visitors.
What about trash and recycling pickup? Trash and recycling pickup is contracted by the HOA with Waste Management. Trash is picked up weekly on Tuesdays with recycling picked up on alternate Tuesdays. Carts should be at the curb for service not earlier than Monday night and retrieved not later than Tuesday night. For questions, contact a Board member since the contract with Waste Management is between them and the HOA. See Waste Management’s holiday schedule, and its 2020 Recycling Calendar. Cans should be marked with the house number and because there are often frequent high winds, every effort should be made to secure trash can lids to prevent trash from blowing around the Village.
What is the policy on parking? On street parking is permitted although vehicles that do not move under their own propulsion during a five-day period or longer can be towed unless notification is requested of the HOA Board. On the east side, the parking space adjacent to/east of the house’s yard area is that owner’s space. The northern-most and southern-most houses on the east side consequently do not have parking spaces.
When is lawn maintenance and snow removal accomplished?
- Our landscaping contractors during the season normally spend Tuesdays in the Village performing their tasks.
- The sprinkler system in season operates in accordance with the Town of Monument’s watering requirements.
- Snow removal occurs when snowfall is over two (2) inches and weather conditions indicate continued cold weather and snow accumulating. The HOA retains the options to wait until the storm passes before snow operations begin. Also, if the forecast is for warmer weather, the HOA may wait, provided the snow is not too deep, and allow the snow to melt. The contractor may come in the early hours to allow people who have to get out to work to leave. Residents are responsible for clearing their own porches and walkways out to the common sidewalk; the contractor is responsible for the sidewalks, the alleyway on the east side, and the driveways and quadrangle areas of the west side. Snow operations information is normally updated via email.
