|Arrowhead Pool Closure |
Due to a variety of maintenance projects and impacts to the pool operation the Arrowhead pool will be closed September 14 – November 20. Please mark your calendars.
County Fire Restrictions
Eagle County implemented Stage Two fire restrictions beginning on Friday, August 14, 2020, for all unincorporated areas of Eagle County which will remain in effect until further notice. This restriction bans all outdoor fires including charcoal grills and smoking. Click here for further information about what this restriction level requires.
With fires burning to our west, please be extra careful to hydrate your yard sufficiently to keep the grass and plants alive and prevent them from providing fuel for any potential fire in our area. If homeowners would like a review of their property with regard to fire safety, contact: Jeff Zechman with the Eagle River Fire Protection District at [email protected].
AVA Services Provided
It has become apparent in communication and conversation with homeowners that our homeowners are not completely clear on who is responsible for services provided in our neighborhood. There are two groups that help to take care of the needs of our community: The AVA Homeowners Association and the Arrowhead Metropolitan District. These two groups have different funding resources and are responsible to provide different services.
The AVA Homeowners Association (AVA) is the organization that receives your annual common assessment (the $1,600 fee) and transfer fees from sales of Arrowhead properties. It is the organization that communicates with you regularly through the newsletter and website. In addition, the AVA provides:
– Entry Gate and Public Safety Management
– Construction Rules and Regulations
– Keyholder Agreements
– Common Area Maintenance and Repair
– Policies and Procedures monitoring
– Social Media and Website Maintenance
– Common Area Landscaping
– Common Area Lighting and Holiday Lighting
– Weed and Rodent Control
– Swimming Pool and Spa Maintenance ( The Alpine Club owns and runs the Pool)
– Tennis Court Maintenance
– Design Review Committee
– Enforcement of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions
– Trash Removal
– Neighborhood Activities
The Arrowhead Metropolitan District (AMD) is a quasi-municipal corporation and a political subdivision of the state of Colorado organized in 1981. The AMD receives its funding primarily through resident property taxes and the Arrowhead local sales tax. The AMD provides the following services for our homeowners:
– Construction, maintenance and repair of streets, roads, specific street lighting and storm water drainage
– Winter snow removal services for roads, streets, parking lots and common areas
– Transportation services within the community and inter-village
Domestic Water Service through the Upper Eagle River Water Authority
– Mosquito Control
– Park and recreation facilities and maintenance – Installation and maintenance of all traffic signs
At their last meeting, the AVA Homeowners Board voted to begin a single stream recycling program. This would allow homeowners to use a single container for all of their recycling needs. Vail Honeywagon will provide a new wheeled container for these purposes. This service will not begin for several months, and we will communicate further instructions before the program begins. The schedule and timing for pick up will remain the same.
Design Review Guidelines
There are increasing numbers of homeowners that are looking to update the exterior of their homes. In the event you are one of these individuals, please be sure to refer to the DRC guidelines before installation. The current DRC guidelines can be found on the Arrowhead at Vail website. With respect to exterior lighting, the following rules apply:
1. Consult Dark Sky groups such as Outdoor Lighting Basics from the Dark Sky Association
2. Illuminate only when necessary
3. Utilize white or yellow hues
4. Choose light of Kelvin rating between 2700 – 3000
5. Consider limiting lumens per fixture to 900 or less
6. Limit lantern bulbs to 25 watts or less.
7. Shield light with frosted glass
8. Shield the light from above
9. Integrate the lighting design with exterior materials and finishes
10. Utilize limited landscape lighting for safety purposes along paths, stairs, driveways
11. Consider illuminating home address numbers
1. Utilize up lighting
2. Illuminate exterior wall expanses
3. Illuminate trees or general landscaping
4. Utilize light that produces glare for neighboring residences

Since our last communication, the Activities Committee has planned and carried out several great activities that created some fun in the community while still observing county health guidelines. Did you attend our first annual Fourth of July Parade? Everyone from our residents to their families and even those here for a brief visit participated and enjoyed. Congratulations to our decor winners:
Cindy and Kelly Parker and family – Most Patriotic
George Coleman and granddaughter – Most Fun
Anne Trumpower and Deb Mace – Most Creative
Thank you to Anne and Deb for coming up with the idea and helping to make it happen!
Several weeks ago, the Committee held a Bingo night MC’d by our neighborhood treasure, George Coleman. Almost 100 participants attended and had a great time. This past weekend, the committee hosted Filthy Friday and Adult Trivia Night. Although the weather did not cooperate, a good time was had by all! Mark your calendars for Starry, Starry Movie Night on Saturday September 5th from 7:30 – 9:30pm, featuring Sonic the Hedgehog. Look for announcements in our email blast-outs and see an ongoing list of events on our Facebook page.
