What can we do about speeders on Burland roads? Our Association has worked with the Park County Sheriff's Department to increase patrols in our subdivision. Road and Bridge has installed additional speed limit signs in some areas. It is important for all residents to drive safely and obey traffic laws.  If you observe speeders, report them to the Sheriff’s Department. The non-emergency number is: 719-836-4121.

 

How can residents work together to achieve common goals? If you haven't already done so, join the the Association and come to meetings to share your concerns and help make decisions. Join a committee that fits your interests and help with the effort to bring Burland together. We also encourage all Burland residents to come to our annual Burland picnic held in July at Weakland-Fawks Park.

How should residents deal with barking dogs?
Short periods of barking or barking at wildlife are understandable; they also could be in danger of predators, or have been abandoned by their owner, so we would suggest that all these things be taken into consideration.  We also believe that after 20 minutes it does become a nuisance to others and should be reported and/or investigated for whatever reason. See these steps for suggestions on how to respond. 

Do you rent out your home?

Regarding your tenants (long-term renters, VRBO & Airbnb, etc.):

 

Park County regulations govern you and your renters. You are ultimately responsible if your renter breaks the law. The mountains have rules that renters may not be aware of if they are from away. Inform them of these rules when you rent to them for your safety and for the safety of your neighbors.

Does the Burland Homeowners Association assist with installation of Security Mailboxes?

Yes. Mail theft has become common everywhere. We want to help Burland Ranchettes convert to locking mailboxes. Complete instructions and reimbursement guidelines are available here. It’s a great neighborhood project!
