Project Updates

SUA Area Construction Activity/Filing 1 Irrigation & Landscaping

Map of impacted areas

Brookfield Residential, the developer of Barefoot Lakes, is in the process of redeveloping the Special Use Area (former Anadarko oil well site) within Filing 1 and construction activities have impacted the district’s irrigation mainline which serves Waterside Park and district landscape tracts south of the SUA to Colorado River Drive . Impacted areas have been identified on the attached map.

While the irrigation system is out of service, the district is hand watering areas that are unable to receive irrigation water. Brookfield Residential has plans to get the irrigation line back into service by the middle to late July, then notify the District so that the irrigation system can be reactivated. Brookfield Residential has also committed to replace all of the turf grass areas that are unable to recover in July as well.

The District is responsible for snow removal Living in Colorado means snow, ice, and freezing temperatures. Please follow these steps to ensure the safe passage of emergency vehicles, facilitate safe traffic flow, and keep yourself and your neighbors safe:
  • Move vehicles from priority snow routes. Vehicles impeding snow removal operations are subject to ticketing and towing. The Town of Firestone is responsible for snowplow operations on public streets. Please reference the Town’s website at https://www.firestoneco.gov/190/Snow-Removal to see the snow removal routes and priorities as established by the Town of Firestone. If you have questions about these routes, please contact the Town of Firestone.
  • District is only responsible for removal of common area sidewalks and alleyways. Crews will be out to remove snow after 2’’ or more of snow has fallen and accumulation has stopped. Please submit an online maintenance ticket, call, or email us with any alleyways, paved trails, or The Cove snow removal questions.
  • All property owners have 24 hours to clear their sidewalks in front of their homes of snow and ice once a snow storm has ended, contact the Firestone Code Enforcement team if non-snow removal in front of homes occupied under construction.
  • Please assist the Town’s snow removal efforts by shoveling snow from walks and driveways onto your property, instead of into the street.
