Important Issues & Policies in TrailMark
Stop is required to turn right onto TrailMark Parkway at a Red Light
Concern has been voiced whether a southbound vehicle must stop, at a red light, when turning right off of Wadsworth Boulevard, onto TrailMark Parkway, heading west. Per CDOT: YES, if the light is red, regardless of which direction you wish to go, a stop is required prior to turning right onto TrailMark Parkway or moving forward.
Specifically, per CRS 42-4-604(1)(c)(I)(A):
Bottom Line: If the light is RED at the intersection of Wadsworth Boulevard and TrailMark Parkway, regardless of what direction you wish to go, you must come to a stop before moving on. If you have further questions please contact CDOT at 303-759-2368.

Santa makes surprise visit to TrailMark
Santa and his helpers showed up on the corner of TrailMark Parkway and Everett the weekend before Christmas to get the last wishes of believers. He was full of Ho Ho Ho’s and was very engaging with the kiddos and pets as Christmas music played in the background. Santa was sitting in his Santa chair waving at people as they drove by. Some stopped to see him and kids sat on his lap. Others jumped out of their cars and took a quick picture with him. Families enjoyed his visit, saying it was very fun.
Santa said it was good for his heart to spend some special time with the residents of TrailMark and to see the love and holiday spirit in their hearts. He said he is going to try and make this an annual event, as long as he and the elves can keep up.

From our property management company (CRS)
Please note: Invoices were sent for the quarterly HOA dues. Dues remain the same for 2020 at $110 per quarter. If you have any questions, please contact the management company.
As has been noted in previous newsletters, if you are doing any exterior work to your home, it is important to obtain DRC approval first. No work shall be performed prior to approval.

Jefferson County Notifications and Alerts
As we are aware, development in the local TrailMark area is a constant occurrence and the HOA receives many homeowner inquiries about various projects whether building and/or road construction/maintenance projects. Homeowners who want to stay informed about these projects can access project information via the Jefferson County notification system which will email residents about upcoming projects. To register for this and/or a variety of other alerts and notifications, use the link: https://www.jeffco.us/list.aspx. You will provide your email and/or phone number to register for the service, and then may select any number of notifications/alerts to your email, or texts to your cell phone.
Improvements Made to Jeffco Treasurer's Property Search Website
Jefferson County made some improvements to its Treasurer Property Tax Search, which allow residents to view their tax statement and pay their property taxes. These improvements made the application easier and accessible on any device.
The improvements include additional property search capabilities, enhanced historical data and tax bill availability, an estimate of property taxes for the next year and the ability to process multiple property tax payments within the same transaction. The new application is also mobile friendly and features enhanced security and user help.
Jeffco Clerk & Recorder: Renew Vehicle Tags Without a Hassle
No one enjoys waiting in line at the DMV. Fortunately, it's easier than ever for Jeffco residents who need to renew their vehicle registration to skip the trip altogether. In addition to being able to renew online, there are now five self -service kiosks located at King Soopers stores throughout the county.
To use one of the kiosks, drivers need two things: their renewal notice (or the information on it) and a form of payment. The machines immediately print a copy of the updated registration along with tag stickers. The kiosks are open when King Soopers is - 5 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. For more information and to find the nearest kiosk to you, visit the Jeffco Clerk and Recorder Motor Vehicle website.
Save These Important Dates for 2020 Elections
Jeffco voters, mark your calendars! On March 3, Colorado is one of 14 "Super Tuesday" states that vote in the presidential primary. The next big date is June 30, when voters cast ballots in state primary elections. Finally, the general election falls on Nov. 3.
As always, Jeffco voters will receive their ballots via mail three weeks before each election day. For more information, or to check or update your voter registration, visit the Jeffco Clerk and Recorder Elections website.

Business sponsors needed for 2020 events
The Social Committee is looking for business sponsors for some of our 2020 events! In order to keep from raising dues or event entrance fees we are looking for sponsors for various portions of events. This could include paying for the bounce houses or face painters at the summer concerts, 4th of July or TM5K; paying for coffee and donuts at the Easter Egg Hunt or 4th of July; or even sponsoring the tractor and barrel rides at the Corn Maze or carriage rides at Night at the Lights.
If you or your business is interested in helping to sponsor one or more of these events please email email@example.com.
We love putting on these amazing events for our neighbors, but with rising event costs we need your help!
Thanks so much!

Reminder: TrailMark ponds are unsafe
On December 21 some kids were spotted playing on the ice on Fairview Reservoir. There are rule signs around the water warning to stay off the ice. The danger is real and it would be a tragedy to have someone or a pet harmed.
