NEWS & UPDATES
Sterling Ranch Partners with Vanderbilt University
Each year, Sterling Ranch partners with Vanderbilt University to assist students in understanding residential developments. This year, one of the students is researching thoughts and feelings toward smart communities like Sterling Ranch. Below is a message from the research student. Please consider assisting in completing the research project by taking the survey. 

Message from Vanderbilt student: Please take 1 to 2 minutes to answer the following multiple choice survey questions, which will be recorded anonymously. The survey questions were written by Vanderbilt University student Kate Petosa for her senior honors project, and as part of a partnership between Vanderbilt University and Sterling Ranch. Kate’s research aims to better understand the experience and priorities of smart community residents in several key development areas.
Thank you for your participation. All responses are completely anonymous. If you have any questions, you can contact Kate at katherine.g.petosa@vanderbilt.edu.

Holiday Lights
As we start the new year and the holiday season comes to a close, please be reminded that all holiday light displays must be taken down no later than January 25.

Trash Carts
Containers for pickup may be placed on the street or alleyway the evening prior to pick up and must be returned to an appropriately screened location by the end of the pick-up day. If you have extra garbage or large items that will not fit inside the container, please contact customer service at 303-288-2100 at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled pickup day. Items or bags placed next to the container will not be picked up without prior arrangement. Additional charges may apply.

Snow Removal Reminder:
  • Douglas County is responsible for snow removal on all public streets – their policies on snow removal can be found on the County’s website.
  • Per the Douglas County Code, “Residents are responsible for clearing driveways and sidewalks within 24 hours after a snowstorm to allow safe use by pedestrians. It is required that owners place snow from their driveways and sidewalks onto their front yard and not into the street”.
  • The Sterling Ranch CAB will be removing snow in CAB maintained areas around the community as follows:             
  • Plowing of parking lots and drive lanes when snow accumulation reaches 3 inches.
  • Clearing of sidewalks and mailbox kiosks when snow accumulation reaches 2 inches. Routes will be cleared at 2-inch intervals through the duration of the storm.
  • Ice melt/sand will be applied in areas identified for the safety of the residents.
  • Please be sure to remove your vehicle from motor courts, alleyways, shared driveways, and county streets. This allows for a clear path for plows to remove snow and perform ice mitigation.
  • Elements: Do not park in the backout areas at the end of the driveways. The backout areas are designated as No parking areas.

Exterior Lighting Education Series
During the month of January, the CAB will be presenting an Exterior Lighting Education Series sponsored by the CAB Enforcement Committee. This series will be reviewing the current rules surrounding exterior lighting and the Dark Sky initiative mandated by Douglas county. All exterior lighting violations and DRC approvals have been placed on hold during the month of December and January in efforts to educate the community on this important topic. Beginning February 1st, Community Standards staff will continue the enforcement of these important rules.

Please Join us on the following dates:
  • Tuesday, January 12, 6:00pm: Presentation of Dark Sky Initiative and Sterling Ranch Exterior Lighting Rules and Regulations. Presented by the Enforcement Committee and CAB Staff.
  • Tuesday, January 19, 6:00pm: Presentation of Ideas for Illuminating the Exterior of your Home. This will be a presentation of how-to ideas and example products that align with current Exterior Lighting regulations and Dark Sky initiative. Presented by a professional Lighting Consultant.
  • Date TBD: Astronomy Night – An outdoor event celebrating the night sky.
 
It is important that as Sterling Ranch grows, we appreciate the spectacular night sky as much as we appreciate the beautiful architecture and landscaping of the neighborhood.
Water Update
Roxborough Water and Sanitation District’s (RWSD) maintenance on the water distribution system ends this week. Homeowners should see noticeable improvements in their water with less chlorine odor and taste than what has been experienced recently. RWSD will continue to perform systematic flushing of the system to remove any pockets of discoloration or odor that may be left behind. Please note that the water is safe to drink, and it tested frequently.
If you notice any further discoloration of your water after next week, please contact us at info@sterlingranchcab.com and include your name, address, and contact information.
Staying healthy at home means getting care when you need it

  • A mask requirement for all patients and visitors, and protective gear for all staff and providers.
  • Redesigned each step of your visit for more efficient and physically-distanced interactions.
  • Enhanced, rigorous cleaning during and between patient visits, plus a nightly multi-step disinfecting process.
  • Made it easy to address many common medical issues with your provider through our Virtual Visit option or Virtual Urgent Care.

Don’t put your health on hold.

Ice Safety is Simple: Stay Off
It’s a chilly winter morning and you are walking your dog, Annie, around the neighborhood. Suddenly she sees a goose on the ice of a pond, begins barking, and pulls away from you. Midway to the goose, the ice breaks, and Annie splashes into the water.

Your role, as a resident or bystander, is simple. Stay off the ice and call 911. South Metro Fire Rescue’s firefighters are trained and equipped to rescue people and pets from icy lakes and ponds.

You are not. You don’t have the training or special equipment.

If your dog runs onto the ice and falls in, stay onshore and call 911. If you see a person after they fell through the ice, call 911.
