District Fence Guidelines

Read the rules pertaining to the area directly behind the District Fence: District Fence and Common Area Rules

District-Owned Common Area Fence

The District maintains fencing adjacent to common areas and open space. Fence staining is performed on a regular basis for the exterior and top of the fence. Homeowners are responsible for staining (and re-staining) the inside portion of District-owned common area fencing, and are responsible for the entire upkeep and re-staining of fence that does not border common area. Homeowners are allowed to re-stain common area fencing on the outside and top if they do not want to wait for the District’s vendor to complete a specific area.

Do Not Attach Items to the Fence

The only exception for attaching things to the District-owned fence is for temporary holiday lighting, which must be attached using temporary means such as wreath hangers. No nails, hooks, screws or other hardware may be attached to the District fence. Homeowners are not permitted to insert gates or otherwise modify the fence.

Fence Stain Color

Approved fence stain color can be obtained at the Sherwin Williams paint store on East Smoky Hill Road by requesting the Inspiration fence stain, or at any paint store by using the Approved Fence Stain paint code. The District’s vendor can perform the work for you, call Jake Simcoe for pricing at 720-442-0563.

Installing a New Fence

The Residential Improvement Guidelines can be found on the Design Review page, along with the application form for a new project. Fence specifications are found in the guidelines document.

Fence Staining Update – April 2024

Staining work will begin soon on designated sections of District-owned fencing. You may see crews doing initial preparation and power washing prior to staining work.

Each year the Board allocates funding to rotate through the large amount of District-owned fence to be re-stained. This year, 9,396 linear feet of fence will be stained, this is the same amount as in 2023. Simcoe (the same vendor as in prior years) will be performing the work. The District paints the outside and top rail of the fence. Homeowners are responsible for staining the inside portion.

See the map below for the areas of fence staining that will be completed in 2024 (marked in dark blue).
