Association dues – how are they used?
Although our unpaid, volunteer homeowners donate many hours of their time each year, we still have operating expenses. HOA dues pay for exterior building maintenance, water, wastewater, landscaping, lawn maintenance, snow removal and general maintenance of the Glenborough neighborhood. In addition, a portion of the dues are deposited in the Reserve account to cover capital projects.
When are assessments due?
Assessments are due on the 1st of every month and are late on the 15th. To make it easy and more convenient for homeowners, there is the option to set up automatic withdrawal from a checking account.
Why is special loss assessment insurance required?
Glenborough is essentially “self-insured” for the roofs, based on the deductible, so please be sure you have loss assessment coverage (also called special assessment coverage) as an added option to your condo insurance policy. We recommend a minimum of $20,000 and the cost is minimal.
What are the parking arrangements?
Resident garages accommodate 2 cars. Cars must be parked in garages and any additional cars or motor vehicles that will not fit in the garage must be parked on South Ammons Street (see Parking rules for more information). Visitors may use the parking pads and if they plan to stay longer than a few days, please inform the property manager. In the winter, please reserve the parking pads near Buildings 7 & 18 for snow removal.
Are pets allowed in Glenborough?
Pets are allowed in our community. Homeowners must be responsible for their pets when on the premise and pick up after their dogs and must have their dogs on leash at all times. For additional information see the governing documents as well as the Municipal Code of the City of Denver, Colorado, Article I, Chapter 8.
Can I garden around my residence?
The landscaping around the community has been planned to be interesting and beautiful while being easy to maintain. If home owners want to alter the landscaping, their plan must be submitted to the Landscaping Committee. This committee is charged with ensuring that landscaping is in keeping with the master plan. Please note that if you plant something, without the approval of the Landscaping Committed, this item may be removed without notice.
When is trash collected?
Trash day is Wednesday and residents should have their trash out by 7 a.m. If there is a major holiday, trash is collected one day later. Recycle is picked up weekly as well and extra trash is picked up every 5 weeks. For specific information and schedule see denvergov.org.
How does the HOA Board communicate with residents?
Communication is delivered in a variety of ways. Dates of meetings and important information are posted in a community bulletin board located by the mailboxes. A quarterly newsletter (when we have an editor) is distributed via email or US mail. Notice of the annual (budget meeting) is distributed via US mail to all association members. Please confirm or update your email address with the property manager to help us keep mailing costs down; however, we understand that some residents still prefer receiving information in hard copy and we will hand deliver or mail via US mail, as needed.
