Important Reminders & Updates
We have had some questions and trouble with people parking campers on the streets along with broken down vehicles. The bylaws state:

All types of "Recreational Vehicles," including but not limited to trucks, trailers, mobile homes, detached camper units, utility and boat trailers, snowmobiles, race cars, watercraft or house trailers, are prohibited from parking anywhere within the District unless they fit entirely within an enclosed garage, except for the "temporary expedient of unloading, delivery or emergency." Three overnights (i.e., 72 hours) during a seven (7) day period for loading and unloading is allowed. Parking of a recreational vehicle for a period of time in excess of 72 hours in a 7-day period is prohibited, except
as may be approved in writing by the Committee.

Periodic movement of the vehicle for purposes of circumventing this standard shall not qualify the vehicle for exception from this standard. Any "Recreational Vehicle," including but not limited to trucks, trailers, mobile homes, detached camper units, utility and boat trailers, snowmobiles, race cars, watercraft or house trailers shall not be parked, kept, stored or maintained on or adjacent to any open space area within the District, except while temporarily engaged in loading or unloading of trucks
or RVs not to exceed more than one (1) consecutive day. Vehicles in violation hereof shall be subject to ticketing and/or towing at owner's expense, as provided herein or by applicable law.

The purpose of the 72 hours is to load and unload, not to provide storage/parking for the unit. Recreational Vehicles must stored/parked in the garage, off site, or as otherwise approved in writing by the Committee.
Vehicles shall not be parked on landscaped (i.e., rock, sod, mulch, plants, etc.) areas. Inoperable vehicles ("legally" and/or "mechanically") are not permitted to remain within the District so as to be visible.


Tree Replacement within the District
 
The District is working to replace dead trees within the community. A handful of trees were replaced this fall however we were not able to replace every single one. A tree audit will be performed again this spring, the district will plan to address the remaining trees from last fall along with any new ones that may come up. Trees at the park on Wheatlands Pkwy and Kewaunee will not be addressed due to the construction of the new park coming up.






Park Update
During the last board meeting, the residents and board members were presented with themes for the park located at Wheatlands Parkway and S. Kewaunee Way.  
The approved theme will be "Big World, Little Kid".  This theme plays on the concept of kid's being small in a larger then life world. 
This theme has many wooden and natural elements to it that will create a beautiful play space in our community. 
The park design still needs to be approved by the City of Aurora so it is subject to change and any changes will be communicated. 
We hope you find this update helpful and look forward to moving forward with the park plan.

  Swim Team at the Wheatlands Pool
 
The Wheatlands Sharks is a summer swim club which provides a positive learning experience for the kids with an emphasis on fun and to provide a positive community experience for families and children of all ages. 

We provide instruction on swim techniques and swim meet participation, and to give the children the opportunity to learn to compete positively in a casual competitive environment.  Since we are a summer  "recreational" team, we allow swimmers of all ages and abilities to be a part of the team.

You might join the Wheatlands Sharks because you are looking for a great team for your swimmer.  You are going to stay with the Wheatlands Sharks because you are going to discover the fun.  The wild ride of the 7 week season is fun and family oriented.  Activities we offer, outside of swim meets and practice are Parent Social, Movie Night, Pancake Breakfast, Dance, Spirit Practice, and an end of season Awards Banquet.

Wheatlands Residents will have a priority registration that will take place one day in April.  Stay tuned!! If you have any questions please email info@wheatlandssharks.com or visit our webpage at www.wheatlandssharks.com
