Crime Prevention Tips from the Denver Police Department.
Beginning September 15, 2016, a cleaning service will be on site weekly, typically on Friday. Enclosed foyers at buildings 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 16, 17, 18, 20, & 22 will be cleaned on a rotating weekly basis. In other words, the enclosed foyer at your building will be cleaned approximately once every four weeks. Due to Denver Fire Department regulations and in consideration of cleaning crews, please refrain from leaving personal items in the foyer area or on landings. The clubhouse and the laundry facilities in buildings 4 and 16 will also be cleaned on a weekly basis.
Please read the Home Fire Safety bulletin from the Denver Fire Department. Annually, in September, the City and County of Denver requires the HOA to obtain a report from each unit owner. The City requires the HOA to maintain a log of completed reports. Owners who fail to deliver a completed report annually by September 20th will be reported to the City. The HOA plans to mail or email the required report annually to unit owners, on or about August 1st each year. — 2016 Report & Letter to Unit Owners
Pets are NOT permitted to run free on PEBBLE CREEK property. Dogs are required to be on a leash and under control of their owner, at all times. Pet owners may NOT leave a pet unattended on a patio, balcony, or chained to trees.
You are REQUIRED to pick up after your pet. Any persons observed allowing their pet to defecate on the lawns and not immediately cleaning it up, may be assessed a fine (fines will be assessed to the homeowner, whether the unit is rented or occupied by the owner and could cause a lease to be terminated).
Dogs and cats must be licensed in Denver. It shall be unlawful for the owner, possessor or keeper of any domestic dog over the age of six (6) months or domestic cat over the age of six (6) months to keep, maintain, house or have in possession within the city a dog or cat without first having obtained a license for such dog or cat. Dogs or cats over the age of six (6) months purchased, obtained or otherwise acquired shall be licensed within thirty (30) days after such acquisition or, if under, within thirty (30) days after reaching six (6) months of age.
Licenses may be applied for in person, by telephone, by mail, or online by the owner of a dog or cat or an owner's representative. Upon filing of the completed application, and payment of the license fee, Denver shall issue to the applicant a one-year license for the current year, a three-year license for the current and two (2) subsequent years or a permanent license for the lifetime of the dog or cat.
Pit bulls prohibited. It shall be unlawful for any person to own, possess, keep, exercise control over, maintain, harbor, transport, or sell within the city any pit bull.
Rabies vaccination required. Given the wildlife present on the grounds (raccoons, squirrels, and the occasional coyote) it is very possible that your pet could be exposed to a rabid wild animal.
Any person who acquires within the city a dog or cat has a duty to have it vaccinated within thirty (30) days of such acquisition unless the dog or cat has not yet reached an age at which it is safe to vaccinate the animal; provided, however, that in any case the dog or cat must be vaccinated before reaching the age of six (6) months.
Spay/neuter is required for dogs and cats living in the City and County of Denver.

There are a number of high voltage transformers on site. Tampering with a transformer can result in electrocution. Xcel Energy has a 10-foot easement around the transformers. If Xcel Energy or their subcontractors need access to a transformer, they have the legal right to immediately remove any fence or obstruction or tow a vehicle.
Over time, the concrete bases on which the transformers sit have settled, and some have tipped. The concrete bases cannot be made level again, given the risk of affecting high voltage lines underneath the concrete base. Do not attempt to paint transformers. Do not attempt to remove graffiti from transformers (contact Xcel Energy).
Residents of Building 2 (east of the clubhouse) have a good view of the forested area east of the clubhouse. A couple years ago, coyotes were seen almost daily in winter months, wandering along the north fence of the tennis courts. Several residents had their small dogs unexpectedly killed by the coyotes.
Discarding large items by the dumpster will result in fines being assessed by the HOA and charged directly to the owner of the offending unit. Landlords are encouraged to withhold damage deposit refunds until it can be verified that no large items were left behind.
Contact the office if you plan to discard large items near a dumpster, or if trash from your remodeling or recarpeting fills a dumpster. The HOA is automatically billed additional amounts each month by the trash company when large items are picked up. Contact the office and remit an appropriate payment in advance of large item pickup.
