(Note that this policy has been in effect since 2012, but was modified June 20, 2019 just to increase the monthly assessment to $80)

Weekly Dog Poop Pickup Service

Our policy is and always has been that every dog owner is responsible for keeping all waste cleaned up at all times, dogs are never to run free, and property owners are responsible for keeping their own properties cleaned up.


We have hired K9 Scooper Pros to do a bi-weekly dog poop pickup and funding this by identifying the property owners that need the pickup.


What are we doing?

  1. Keep our grounds free of dog poop.
  2. Make it easy for dog owners who may slip to get their property cleaned up.
  3. Make dog owners who do not clean up successfully (or the property owner) pay for the cleanup.


This simple initiative has resulted in a cleaner neighborhood with much less pestering and whining about the problem.

Questions and Answers about the Dog Poop Pickup


Who cleans up?  K9 Scooper Pros, 970-200-5372,

When do they clean up? Every second week

Who pays for this? Any property that has a pickup in a given month will have $80 added to their next HOA dues bill.  The property owner, of course, pays the HOA dues, but may make any arrangement necessary with a renter if there is one.

What if somebody else's dog poops on my property? We'll do our level best to communicate with you and figure out which dog and which owner is the problem.  We'll ask you. If you don't have a dog and there's poop on your lawn... well, that's pretty easy.

How will I know if dog poop was found on my property? Ooopsie Poopsie will leave a little "You've been scooped" note on your front door.

Can I just get Oopsie Poopsie to do this for me all the time? Sure, easy. We'll just set you up with them and they will do your yard every week and will charge you $8/week.  It goes without saying you still have to keep control of your dog and pick up after them yourself any time they might be somewhere else on the block.

How much will this cost me? The most it could ever cost you is $80/month. If you don't have a dog it will never cost you anything.

What if I have other questions? Call or email Nancy Lewis, 970-462-7450.
