Here is the agenda as a docx document.
Family Center temporarily closed due to Covid-19
As we are sure you are aware, we as a community are dealing with the possible spread of COVID-19. We understand that in times like these it is important to share information as quickly as possible and to make decisions that are based in fact. With the safety of our community in mind, we have come to the difficult decision to follow the lead of Belle Creek Charter School and Commerce City and close the Belle Creek Family Center, effective immediately. This includes all events and programs, including child care programs (i.e. Little Feats and before- and after-school care), until further notice. We will discuss when we will reopen at the next board meeting. We will be sure to post updates on this site, Twitter, and Facebook as soon as information becomes available.
We realize that this will inconvenience many of you and we greatly appreciate your understanding while we navigate this complicated situation.
Thank you, The Belle Creek Family Center
YMCA Contract to End
Please be advised that the Board of Directors of the Belle Creek Metropolitan District No. 1 has decided not to renew the YMCA contract for Family Center Operations. The District will transition to a self-managed facility with District employees over the next 60 to 90 days. It is the District’s intent to provide the same and/or better services and programming to the community.
We know how important the School Age Child Care is to the families using these services and are looking to finalize a suitable and affordable replacement. The YMCA has agreed to provide Before and After Care until 3/31/2020. We will continue to update the Community as our search for the Before and After Care replacement moves forward.
Belle Creek residents value our neighborhood. We care about the happiness of our neighbors, the stability of the community, and the value of our homes. These values are the purpose for the Covenant Enforcement Committee.
Belle Creek is one of many newer neighborhoods that has a Metropolitan District (also known as a Metro District), instead of a Homeowners Association. The most notable difference, for homeowners, is that payments for common area maintenance, covenant enforcement, and the Family Center are made as a part of your annual property tax payment.
The Belle Creek Metro District has one five-person board (MDB), which manages the Metro District and empowers the Covenant Enforcement Committee (CEC). The MDB is responsible for the annual Belle Creek budget and generally fulfilling the requirements of a Metropolitan District, and is home owner controlled with all board members being residents of Belle Creek. In contrast, the CEC is a group of volunteer Belle Creek homeowners whose sole purpose is to work with the Covenant Enforcement Manager (Wolfersberger LLC) and the District Manager (Mulhern MRE) to ensure fair and consistent covenants are in place and people are held to the appropriate standards. The CEC does this by assessing community concerns, handling violation disputes, and approving/rejecting architectural review requests. All of the decisions of the CEC are upheld by the powers given to the MDB by the Master Declaration of Covenants and by-laws.
