Frequently Asked Questions
I just bought property in the Silverheels Ranch community. Where can I get a copy of the covenants & bylaws? I did not receive one from my real estate agent.
You should have received them at closing. However you can obtain copies of our governing documents on our “Governing Documents” page. The SROA Board of Directors provides these documents alongside the official recorded documents.
I am planning on repainting my home/cabin. Do I need permission even if I am planning on using the same color?
No. Please make sure the colors you choose are compatible with the natural environment of the subdivision. Predominant colors in natural or earth tones, with accent colors complementary to the predominant colors are acceptable. (Section 6.3.b of the Amended and Restated Covenants)
I have recently purchased property and am planning to build next spring. What do I need to do to conform to the covenants?
Complete an ARC Application once you have obtained your building permit. This way the ARC can help to ensure that your building meets the covenant requirements of setbacks and color.
You can download the ARC application on the ARC page. Email the completed application to ARC@silverheelsranch.org, or mail it to:
PO Box 429
Fairplay, CO 80440-0429
What building projects require ARC approval?
Any exterior building project that requires a building permit. Interior projects i.e. bathroom, kitchen, basement remodel, etc. do not require ARC approval but may require a building permit. Fences under 6 feet tall do not require ARC approval. All building projects should have colors that are natural or earth tones that are compatible with the natural environment of the subdivision.
Someone’s cattle are on my property; they have caused some property damage. What's the deal?
Colorado is a fence-out state. If you have a lot bordering the BLM or National Forest, you are responsible for maintaining a lawful fence.
According to SROA Covenant 7.6.4:
“Fencing along BLM land or National Forest land must be in accordance with applicable regulations. Existing boundary fences may not be removed, but may be reset to conform to staked property lines and/or be rebuilt as necessary. Owners of Lots on the outside perimeter of the Community shall be responsible for jointly maintaining fences with adjacent owners of private property as and if necessary. Any Owner of a Lot on the west boundary of the Community who keeps livestock or horses shall fence the Lot and keep the fence in good condition and repair.”
How much are Annual Dues, and when are they due?
SROA Dues are $80 per year, per lot. Due and payable on January 15th each year, if your dues are not paid within 30 days after the due date, the assessment shall bear interest from the date of delinquency at the rate of 12% per year.
Are horse allowed in Silverheels Ranch Subdivision?
Yes, horses are allowed. Section 7.6.7 of the Covenants states:
“No more than two horses are permitted on a five-acre Lot. For Lots larger than five acres, prior written approval of the Board is required to keep more than two horses, but no Lot may contain more than four horses.”
If you owned your property on August 28, 2023, you are permitted to have up to 4 horses on your 5 acre parcel as long as they are permitted by the Park County Land Use Regulations. Our water decree permits the watering of 2 horses (SROA Covenants 7.6.3). Water must be brought in for any number of horses over 2.
Is there fishing in the Silverheels pond?
Yes, the SROA stocks both the smaller augmentation pond and the larger pond near the highway. Fishing is for SROA members, long term renters, and guests only. All SROA Members or guests must carry an official SROA Fishing Pass at all times. For more information, read our Fishing Policy.
Are off-highway vehicles, including ATVs and dirt bikes, permitted?
Yes, but only on your private property. Park County Regulations do not allow operation of off-highway vehicles on county maintained roads. Violators may be ticketed.
When is the annual Silverheels Ranch Owners Association meeting held?
Article III Section 3.4 of the Silverheels Ranch Owners Association Bylaws states: “An annual meeting of the members for the purpose of electing directors and transaction of such other matters as may properly come before the meeting shall be held on the second Saturday of September each year in a location and at a time specified by the board of directors. The date of the annual meeting may be changed by a vote of the members at the annual meeting.”
