For our furry friends who like to romp and play, the Pikes Peak Region offers a variety of off-leash areas where they can play to their heart’s content.
Please help keep our neighborhood roadways safe for everyone by signaling as you enter and exit Pine Creek traffic circles (roundabouts) to ensure road safety within our neighborhoods.
Per the Colorado Driver Handbook:
- p. 20 - Rotary Island/Roundabout Lane: Yield to traffic already within the rotary island. Drive to the right and watch for directional signs and signals.
- p. 22 - Signaling: Before making any turn, whether the turn is into another roadway, a parking lot, another traffic lane, or leaving a parked position, it is extremely important that you signal. Your signal lets other drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians know your intentions. In urban or metropolitan areas, you must signal continuously for 100 ft. before making a turn or lane change. On four-lane highways where the posted speed limit is more than 40 m.p.h. you must signal for 200 ft.Failing to signal is a traffic violation.

Please remove your yard's marking flags (often placed for sprinkler maintainance, fertilizer warnings, and digging preparation) when your project is done.
While wildlife is common in the Pine Creek area, please do not encourage human/animal encounters by feeding the wildlife. Mice, rabbits, squirrels, skunks, raccoons, and other rodents can carry and spread disease via fleas, droppings, urine, nesting materials, and bites which can lead to problems with Hantavirus and Plague, Rabies, and Tularemia. Please do not leave garbage, pet food, or leftovers outside, and do not set out food for rabbits or squirrels. This both attracts wild animal and increases the chance of a harmful encounter, both for your home and those nearby.
Most dangerous and potentially harmful encounters with wildlife occur because people fail to leave the animals alone.
It is illegal in Colorado to feed deer. Violators may be fined.

Part of the Association's responsibilities is the maintenance of the stucco walls that "surround" Pine Creek. As I'm sure you can imagine, the cost of that maintenance -- repairing the stucco as it flakes off, painting it, conserving the look-and-feel -- is a big part of our annual budget. One of the issues is a number of people (old and young) taking a shortcut by climbing over the wall near their home. Please ask your residents and visitors not to do so and help us preserve the walls in as good a condition as we can.
