High Wind Debris Clean Up: Due to the recent high winds throughout the Front Range, we are working with our contractors for clean up the debris in our public open space areas and fence lines.
Crews will be out picking up debris during routine service scheduled on Mondays throughout the Brighton Crossing Metropolitan District, during the winter months. We also want to take this opportunity to remind our residents to secure all outdoor furnishings thus helping us create less litter.
Enhancement Committee Update: The Brighton Crossings Operations Board approved the Enhancement Committee’s proposal to install 5 additional pet waste stations along neighborhood trails and sidewalks, and four picnic tables. As locations of these enhancements are solidified a map will be attached to this post.
Fountain Park Re-Purposing: The Brighton Crossings Operations Board determined to re-purpose the water features at Fountain Park, due to necessary splash pad water feature repairs and replacement or rebuilding and ongoing maintenance costs. The splash pad has been sealed and concrete patched. The Brighton Crossings Operations Board approved the 2020 O&M Plan which includes installation of seating and benches in this re-purposed area, which will occur in July. View the full Fountain Park Splash Pad Option Memorandum to Brighton Crossings Operations Board.
Dog Park Gates & Drainage: The dog park gates have been replaced with a lighter gate to mitigate reoccurring latch and hinge issues causing difficult to open and close gates.
The Brighton Crossings developer, Brookfield Residential, has completed a redesign of the open space drainage around the Dog Park to resolve water pooling in and around the Crossings Bark Dog Park.
