Dark Sky and Holiday Lighting
In Cordillera, white holiday lights are permitted from November 15 through March 15, and colored lights are permitted from December 15 through January 15.
To preserve the quality of the nightly star display we all can enjoy, our dark sky policy asks that all outside lights should be turned off at 10 p.m. or earlier, all year round.
Homeowners are asked to respect Cordillera’s quiet hours, and minimize noise between 10pm and 8am.
Cordillera has established parking guidelines to ensure safe roadways for drivers and pedestrians. Park only on one side of the road and never park in front of a fire hydrant on side streets.
Parking is prohibited on Cordillera’s main roads:
- Cordillera Way
- Fenno Drive
- Settler’s Loop
- The Summit Trail (from Settler’s Loop to the Intersection with Gore Trail)
Overnight parking is prohibited on all Cordillera roads. Property owners can contact Public Safety at the Divide Gate at 970-926-2335 to request an exception for permission to park vehicles overnight. It is the vehicle owner’s responsibility to move the vehicle, regardless of time, if snowplowing becomes necessary.
Events– Property owners are encouraged to contact Public Safety to register events that involve a large number of vehicles or if the house is located on a section of road with limited parking.
Construction– Sites are limited to 10 vehicles/pieces of equipment parked on the road at one time. Construction sites that require additional parking should contact Public Safety at 970-926-2335.
Violations– Public Safety makes every effort to resolve parking problems amiably. Repeat violations are subject to fines. Parking violators that block roads and access are subject to towing at the vehicle owner’s expense.
Motor Vehicle Assistance-Public Safety will assist property owners and their guests with minor motor vehicle issues such as dead batteries and flat tires. However, property owners should contact a private towing company to arrange for tows. Public Safety reserves the right to refuse service if the situation is beyond their resources/capabilities and if a person’s failure to remedy a situation is causing a nuisance. Contact the Divide Gatehouse at 970-926-2335 for assistance.
Short and Long Term Rentals
Currently, Cordillera’s governing documents permit rentals. This includes short and long term rentals. However, those living in one of the eight enclaves such as Alcazar, Greyhawk, Bentgrass etc., should check with those governing documents since some prohibit short term rentals and have other rental requirements for homeowners wishing to list and rent their homes. See Buying and Selling in Cordillera for enclave contact information.
Cordillera dog owners are asked to comply with the following rules regarding their furry family members:
- No more than two dogs are permitted on any lot in Cordillera. Offspring less than three months in age are an exception to this rule.
- Dogs are not permitted to roam unattended or uncontrolled beyond their owner’s property line.
- All lots where dogs reside must have a fenced or enclosed area, which limits the dogs’ movement from the site. The fence or enclosure is subject to DRB approval. See Design Review Board
- When a dog is not on an owner’s property, it must be secured on a leash of 12 feet or less and must be under the direct control of the owner/authorized representative.
- Homeowners shall not feed their dogs and other pets outside, including on decks due to the risk of attracting bears and other wildlife.
- Dog owners must clean up after their dogs. Homeowners will find many conveniently located dog waste bag stations throughout Cordillera.
- Contractors, subcontractors, guests (other than those of a homeowner), delivery people, etc., are prohibited by the Covenants and Wildlife Agreements from bringing dogs into Cordillera, even if the dog(s) would be kept inside a vehicle.
- Property owner’s guests may bring dogs into Cordillera and are asked to comply with all Cordillera pet policies.
