Repaired Fence Sections Need Paint
Please do not forget to paint fence repairs to keep the neighborhood looking good.
There are two types of fencing in Pine Creek - the dark green metal "view" fence, and the brown wood plank fence. To paint your own fence - the correct paint / stain colors are:
Green View Fence: To purchase the correct green paint (Olympic Pine; Pine Creek Green) homeowners must go to the Sherwin Williams store near Powers and Dublin (6345 Source Center Point, Colorado Springs, CO 80923, (719) 260-1767). The paint is an oil based Alkyd Enamel, #N8-809. Use the number, and if they cannot find the formula, tell them it is under the Rainbow Paint company mixtures. (Updated December 12, 2019)
Brown Wood Plank Fence: Homeowners now can purchase the PCVA approved wood fence color at either Lowe's or Home Depot. Ask for Lowe's "Pine Creek Picket" Valspar exterior solid stain OR Home Depot's "Pine Creek Brown Fence" Behr solid wood stain.
Replace Dead Trees
As a reminder, it is the homeowner's responsibility to remove any dead trees on their property and replace them with trees on the PCVA approved tree list.
