Neighborhood Reminders

Outside Home Improvement Projects

If you are planning to paint your home or do any outside major improvements, remember that these must be approved by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) before beginning work. If you are unsure on the covenant guidelines, review the Sundance covenants available on our website referring to Articles VI and VII.  Please email our community manager Nick Conley at nick@highlandrealty.com and he will coordinate with the ACC on approvals.

Trash, Recycling and Compost

Based on our covenant guidelines, please place trashcans out of sight in front or back of your home. Trashcans ideally should be placed in your garage or the side of your home (if not facing your neighbors front door).

We encourage our neighbors to recycle and compost. Pick up services are offered through Western Disposal and Tuesday is the day of pick up for our neighborhood. The following recycling guidelines are available on the Western Disposal website.

The President of the SHOA offers on her website information to recycle and donate unwanted items. If you are cleaning out your home or garage and are unsure what to do with unwanted items, then you can use this as a resource: eco-officiency Recycling and Donation Resources

Lawn Care and Weeding

Please keep lawns well maintained and weeds to a minimum. We are an eco-friendly neighborhood and we appreciate if homeowners use non-toxic pesticides and fertilizers. OrganoLawn has some good natural and organic lawn care tips.

Outside Security Lighting

Please be sure to check your auto sensor outside lights on your garage. Our neighborhood does not have streetlights therefore these garage lights are essential to keep our neighborhood well-lit at night for security and safety reasons. Porch lights deter thefts by up to 80%.

Snow Removal

The SHOA contracts to have our common area sidewalks and driveways shoveled if there is 2 inches of snow or more. The SHOA does not shovel property owner sidewalks nor the streets. Boulder law states that homeowners must shovel your sidewalk within 24 hours after it stops snowing. Please see Boulder Sidewalk Snow Removal guidelines on their website.

You may also contact our snow removal vendor, GreenSpaces to contract with them separately to shovel your driveway or sidewalk.

Driving/Speeding

We appreciate everyone driving 15mph in our neighborhood and not texting/ talking on cell phones. We consider the safety of our children and pets a high priority.

Boulder has a program on safe routes to school that show the best streets and pathways for kids to commute.

Annual Members Meeting

Our annual homeowners meetings are held annually in October at the New Day Church on the corner of Jay and 28th Streets. The property manager sends out an announcement for this meeting 30 days prior to the date.  Topics covered at the meeting include review of financial statements and next year’s budget, board of director elections and homeowner concerns.

Dog Care

Please be mindful to pick up your dog waste and keep dogs on leash within the Sundance Community Common Areas. Also be mindful of habitual barking dogs in our neighborhood. If you have any dog homeowner issues to report, please contact the City of Boulder Animal Control.
