Relevance of the covenants to recent problems in the Burland community

Most of these covenants were written at a time when many property owners were summer residents. However, in recent years we have experienced problems with:

  • junk cars;

  • trash left outside homes; and

  • businesses being conducted on residential property, including unlicensed Short Term Rentals (STR)

While these matters are not specifically mentioned in the covenants, the Burland Homeowners Association takes the position that they are covered in the covenant provision which states: "No activity of a noxious nature nor any business may be conducted upon any site, nor shall any activity be permitted which may become a nuisance or annoyance to the neighborhood." When we receive complaints about such activities in the Burland community, it is our policy to notify the property owner by mail to make them aware of the possible violation and ask them to correct it. If the problem persists, we send a second letter advising the property owner that we will ask Park County officials to address the problem through enforcement of its Land Use Regulations (see below).


Park County Land Use Regulations (LURs) 
In addition to the above covenants, all Park County residents should be aware that their property is subject to Park County Land Use Regulations. These regulations, which are enforced by the County, cover zoning, sanitary systems, minimum standards for maintaining horses, etc. The Burland Homeowners Association and its attorney frequently work with county officials who have responsibility for enforcement of these Land Use Regulations. 

Who to Contact about Covenants or Covenant Violations

If you have a question about Park County's Land Use Regulations or wish to file a complaint related to the LURs, please send a message to Tom Eisenman  ( or call him at 719-836-4271.
