Advantages & Amenities for residents

Located in South East Denver, Cherry Creek 3 has quick access to Interstates 25 and 225. We're just steps away from Dayton Station, the RTD line that gives you connections to Denver International Airport, Park Meadows Mail, several local colleges and downtown Denver. We're a close trip to supermarkets, restaurants and local businesses that doesn't require getting onto a highway.


Among Cherry Creek 3's amenities:  

 * Swimming pool (open Memorial Day through Labor Day). Owners who need a copy of the annual pool rules can find them in the HOA Forms and Documents page.
* Residents can sign up for their own plot in the Community Garden each year. (There is a plot fee to cover costs.)

* Kid's tot lot, including swings, slides and things for climbing!

 * Clubhouse (available for rental for groups up to 25 people).

 * Family Play Area (asphalt surface in central yard area: great for Big Wheels, small bicyclists, training wheel bikes)

 * Walking and biking trails, a mountain bike course and disc golf area are adjoining our Dayton Light Rail station (you can take the trails to Cherry Creek State Park or to the bike path along Cherry Creek to downtown Denver.)

 * Several Denver Parks are only a few blocks away by foot or car. That includes a city dog park (next to Kennedy Golf Course and Wal-Mart on Hampden Avenue).

 * In addition to Light Rail service, there is a public bus stop adjoining the west side of the neighborhood on Yosemite Street at Nassau, too.

 * On the final Saturday of July, you can bring a lawn chair to many places in the neighborhood and view the super fireworks display that is launched just across I-225 at the Greenwood Village Days festival.

General unit information:

* Our 251 condos are townhouse-style models and about 65% are owner-occupied. Each owner has their own separate front and back entrances and a private patio. There are no common hallways or entrances and no one lives above or below you. The units are side by side, meaning there are no upstairs or downstairs neighbors.

* Each unit has its own private patio space (covered by a translucent cover that allows sunshine in but keeps snow and rain out) and exclusive private, covered carport spaces at most homes.  ALL parking spaces adjoining perimeter back fences are assigned - the lack of an overheard cover DOES NOT make it a "free" or open spaces.

*NOTE: Your exclusive parking behind your home is the width of your back patio. Most people have 2 exclusive spaces. (A few homes have 3 due to the width of their back patio.) In most cases, people have slightly more than 2 spaces. It is likely that partial space adjoins the partial space owned by the next-door neighbor to create a third space. If you and your neighbor's spaces create a third space, neither home has exclusive rights to own or use that space. It is suggested that both neighbors work out some agreeable arrangement for using that parking space.

*  There are common guest lots throughout the plan for company, in addition to on-street public parking on East Nassau and E. Oxford Drives. However, owners are not permitted to park in designated guest-parking spaces. If a resident has more vehicles than exclusive reserved spaces (for example, 3 cars but only 2 exclusive parking spots), they must park on the public streets and cannot park in guest-only sections. Those who violate this rule may be fined or have their vehicle towed without warning and at the owner's expense). 

* Double-parking (parking a vehicle in the driveway behind those parked in the carport areas, are prohibited by law.

* The walking area behind each back patio fence must be kept clear at all times. Do not put bicycles, planting pots or other items in the space between your back fence and the carport-parking areas.

*Each resident is responsible for keeping their parking spaces clean and free of litter, leaves, cigarette butts, toys, dirt, grease, etc.
 * The planting area in front of each home is owned by the Association. Changes to this area - regardless of whether it involves plants or manufactured materials (bird baths, stepping stones, etc.) must be approved IN ADVANCE by the HOA. 

(Please consult the homeowner's guide given to all owners for detailed parking and vehicle regulations.)


Snow reminders:

  * Cherry Creek III sidewalks will cleared after 2” of snow has fallen while driveways will be plowed and cleared after 4” of snow. The snow-clearing crew typically begins working after snowfall has stopped, not while it continues to snow.

  * Residents are reminded that they cannot park in fire lanes or designated guest spaces during snowy weather. Plowed snow is piled in the guest spaces since it cannot be pushed out onto public streets. Parking violators will be towed at the vehicle owner's expense.

   * Several black containers of ice melt have been placed next to outdoor stairs, along north-facing building fronts and in carport areas. These ice melt containers are used by snow-shoveling crews and can be used by adult residents to help melt ice and snow.


Having problem with a neighbor?

      "Please treat your neighbors the way you'd like to be treated."

         Most people follow that simple saying but - unfortunately - others do not. Whenever possible, please try to speak to your neighbor first to see if you can resolve the situation. If you cannot, and have a neighbor who is causing a disturbance or violating Association rules, please call Realty One Property Management or use one of the e-mail links on the home page to report the problem. You do not have to give your name when filing a complaint.


Pet owners:

NOTE: A copy of our Pet Policy is available on the HOA Forms and Documents page.

     You are responsible for cleaning up after your pet outdoors immediately after it does its business. Pet-waste bags and disposal containers are located throughout the community. Pets should be leashed and under their owner's control at all times and not allowed to run loose. Violators will be cited and fined. If you see someone not following these rules, please call (303) 834-0311.

   If you are reporting an off-leash or pet-poop situation, please give a description of the pet and its owner. You can also give the house number where that person lives (if you know it). Camera photos are also welcome.


Sewer line back-up:

   For sewer clogs or back-ups, the Association suggests using vendors on this list.
   If you have a sewer back-up, call this company for service. You will be required to pay $125 for the sewer-cleaning service at the time of the call. There will not be an additional charge for removal of a basement toilet for clean-out purposes. If there are reasons the Association may be responsible for the sewer back-up, please submit a copy of your paid invoice for possible reimbursement. If you do not call a suggested vendor from this list, you will not be considered for potential reimbursement. (Note: Some companies charge $300-500 for the same work as the firms suggested by the HOA.)
 Here is the information on calling to have your sewer cleaned (please tell them you are calling from Cherry Creek 3 to insure you get the $125 rate):
 

            *  Joe McLeod at Diamondback Drains: 303-650-2903 or 303-601-2714.
         The Association, at its discretion and at no additional charge to residents, also may have a camera inspection of your sewer line conducted after your have your sewer unclogged by one of the two above firms. 
           * For $135, Main-Line Services will conduct a video inspection of your basement sewer system. This is recommended for all owners every 2-3 years to help prevent a back-up. Main-Line can be reached at (303) 596-5803.

     Also, please note that - in most recent years - the Association has declined to reimburse residents for sewage back-ups because the unit owner didn't make an effort to maintain their line properly prior to the back-up. Owners should keep copies of invoices from plumbers or sewer cleaners to show they have properly maintained their lines every 2-3 years.

      Owners of units in Cherry Creek 3 have a private 4” sewer line that exits their home and flows into a bigger, main line (owned by the Association) about 10 to 35 feet from the front of their unit. Each year, the Association pays to have the main lines cleaned to help sewage move from those lines to the main Denver connection down the hill.

        The primary responsibility of the private lines from individual units to the HOA main line belongs to individual Cherry Creek 3 owners. If your private line clogs or becomes blocked, it is your responsibility – not the Association’s – to get it unclogged from your unit to the main line.


 Prevention can help prevent problems: There are some things owners and residents should do to help prevent sewer back-ups.


       Things you should never put down your sink to prevent sewer clogs: Grease, fibrous fruits and vegetables (example: celery), potato peels, rice or pasta, baby wipes, cloth or fabric items, coffee grounds and egg shells.

 Things you should never flush in a toilet: feminine products of any kind, paper towels, wet wipes or diapers. Over the years, we have learned that manufacturers who claim their products are "Flushable" really aren't - and tend to clog private sewer lines.


If ou wish to replace doors or windows, alter landscaping… get permission FIRST! A copy of the Outdoor visual asthetics policy if available on the HOA Forms and Documents page.


      The outside walls on homes and the small landscaping plots in front of each home are owned by the Association, not the individual home owner. Therefore:

  *Third Cherry Creek Townhouse Corp. requires owners to get approval before conducting any changes to the outside of their units. This may include, but is not limited to, installing new doors and windows, changing landscaping or mailboxes, installing a satellite dish, adding external furnace or dryer ducts, etc. Saying "I didn't know" or "no one told me" are not valid excuses for avoiding the rules. Such actions could lead to warnings, fines and lawsuits. The HOA may have unauthorized landscaping removed from in front of a home and the owner may be charged for the clean-up expenses.

        * The Association requires that an Architectural/Landscape Review Request must be submitted and approved by the Board of Directors before any work begins. All requests must be in writing and verbal approvals are not given. See the Page, HOA Forms and Documents, for more information.

         * Please call Realty One Property Management before you hire a contractor or start work. Violations to this regulation could result in fines for the property owner.


Parking in fire lanes is illegal! NEVER do it!

      If your vehicle is parked in a fire line, it will be towed without warning. It's against the law to park in a fire line. When your vehicle is towed, it will cost more than $230 to get it back. So, if you choose to ignore the fire lane signs, you are choosing to have your vehicle towed. The Association will NOT reimburse anyone if their vehicle is towed.

          If you see a vehicle parked in a fire lane, you can call Maxx Towing at 303-295-6353 and they will come tow the improperly-parked vehicle. (You may have to sign a copy of the towing form if you call the towing company.) We also ask that you e-mail or call Realty One to report any fire lane violations. Please include the make, color and license plate number of the vehicle in violation. You can also take a picture with your camera or phone and send it to Realty One.


A note or two for parents:

    Over the years, parents and guardians have raised countless hundreds of children in Cherry Creek 3. We need your help in instructing children of some basic rules:

         * Do not climb on fences or throw things over fences.

         * Swimming pool and play area rules must be observed. There are established hours for these areas. A copy of the current pool rules is available in the Forms and Documents page.

         * Children cannot play or ride bicycles, skateboards, etc. in the driveways. They must ride or play in the designated play areas.
          * Children should be instructed that they should not play or walk in the landscape areas in front of each home because such activity can damage or destroy plants. The same is true about trees: climbing a tree could harm the tree and/or also result in harm to someone climbing the tree.

         * Teach your children that littering is unacceptable, vandalism is a crime and conservation (saving water and electricity) is a good practice.

         * A parent is responsible for their child's behavior. If any child is caught littering, vandalizing or violating community rules, the parent faces potential citations and fines from the Association, plus potential legal action.


Warning to parents about potential dangerous actions by children:

     Please tell your children that they could be putting their health and lives in danger if they try to climb up onto the club house roof. Any children caught on the roof will be subject to police arrest for trespassing and their parents could be fined. Parents also are responsible for their children at the swimming pool, which is off limits to any child 14 and under if not escorted by an adult. If you see children trying to climb onto the roof of any building or over the pool fence, please call the police non-emergency number immediately, (720) 913-2000, to report the situation.


What everyone should know about water and conservation:

    If you pay any attention to the media, you know this part of the country has limited water resources and at times (example; 2002 and 2012) those of us who live in the Front Range and Denver face droughts and drought restrictions. Cherry Creek 3 residents and owners also should be conservation-oriented for several reasons:

      1. Your monthly HOA maintenance fee includes payment for your water and sewage bills. When you use more water, the Association gets a higher water bill. A higher water bill also translates into a higher sewage bill.

      2. The more water and sewage bills increase, the greater the likelihood the HOA will have to increase the monthy maintenance fee to keep up with those higher costs.

      What can we do, individually and as an Association, to help keep water (and sewage bills) under control? Visit our Water - Conservation page on this web site.

      There are many ways. First, and to quote Denver Water, "Use Only What You Need." Don't let faucets run excessively. Install water-conserving toilets, washers and appliances. (Denver Water offers you a rebate for replacing some water devices. See www.denverwater.org for details.)

      Always get a leaking toilet, faucet or pipe fixed immediately! (A leaking toilet can lose 400 gallons a month... or more!)

    Tips  for saving water (and money) are on the Water & Conservation page.
