Maintenance vehicles are ripping up the Landscape

The Landscape is so bad that someone gave the HOA $5,000 dollars to do something, did they? Nope


When given the oppurtunity to get a $10,000 dollar grant from the City of Centennial they Choose Lighting and Fences instead of fixing this Crappy Landscape.


They dont know what to do because there too busy doing nothing.


Can you tell me why the maintenance man do not drive on the grass or close to the building at building 280 and 230

It looks good for a reason because they don’t drive on it with their big knobby tires

Could it be that one of the maintenance man lives there?

And the next question is why do they always drive up to the doorways of all the other buildings causing the ground to be dirt?

I believe they need to respect the grounds a little more instead of driving all over it and then not driving on it where they live 

I believe the reason the maintenance people drive all over the grounds it is because it looks like crap and they don’t give a damn!

They drive to the doorways so they don’t have to walk another 10 feet

Not the case of building 280 they respect it-Its is very well maintained and not damaged by your carts and 4 wheelers

***This is a double standard***

The front of these condo buildings look like a Third World country dirt mud and no vegetation a perfect candidate for zeroscape 

My definition of zero scape is nothing more than gravel colored gravel There could be designs but it’s not really necessary

Also did you know that the cart and four wheeler are wider than the sidewalk

So borders need to be added to the sidewalk gravel border 

It’s ridiculous to think that the cart or 4 wheeler is going to be in the same spot all the time and not driving all over the landscape

Therefore trails.... definite trails for the carts need to be made, otherwise they’re always driving over different parts of the landscape and nothing in the end will grow

Example would be the backside of 209 and traveling from building 190 down to the Clubhouse

I know you’re only interested in lighting and security because you have peaceful Valley I.E,  beautiful landscaping in front of your building

 At some point somebody should try to spiff up these areas over here at the condo buildings

I’m really surprised nobody’s doing anything about the crap conditions in between the condo buildings


When people from out of the community come into our complex that’s one of the first things they notice is how crappy the entrances look with Dirt and Mud being tracked into the building



The HOA  Board Of Directors has now started sending out Violation Notices to entire buildings not knowing who really is to blame. A form of Collective Punishment,  the letters are about Dog Poop and littering but do not provide specific details


Please see PDF scroll down to "Pages"-Highline Meadows Violation Letter Witch Hunt"


This is the new reality of living in this Highline Meadows HOA. This puts neighbors against neighbors when 99% are innocent and are being sent Violation Letters.


Some members dont even own a dog ,but they receive Violation notices about Dog Poop.


Its is not only a waste of money and time but it is making the members of this HOA Mad.



 Guess  you could dream, but you know they are not doing a damm thing.........................


A liitle gravel and borders could make the muddy entrances of the condos look a lot nicer. The towhomes all look great,  much of the manintenace for landscaping has been done in this area. the condo building landscapeing looks like crap.


The typical senario is that each year we dump thousands of dollars into the 50 year old irrigation system which uses the smelly pond water, by the end of July the grass is dead.


It is not really grass it is mostly weeds in the condo areas since there has never been any grass seed planted or sod layed down.


Making matters worst the Maintenance men drive there cart all over it causing dead areas and dirt..With the exception of Building 280 where the Maintenance Man lives, he makes sure he does not drive on the grass. But at other buildings he does not care.


See letter to HLM BOD about it below in Pages


See the picture above of the Maintenance Golf Cart with Aggresive tread ripping up our landscape.This is at building 130/190. What a disaster area! NO ONE CARES



We could have very well groomed areas in front of the condo building entrances with very liitle labor and cost.


Colored gravel with borders could fill up all these dirt mud areas that are just tracked into the buildings. But like always nothing is getting done!


So as usual, the entrances to the condo building look like shit, And like the last 15 years there has been not attempt to Zero Scap the landscape since it was brought to the attention of the HOA.


Case Update:

As the court always rules in favor of the HOA so has this Latest Money case. So again the Court rules in favor of the HOA with there powerful lawyers.


Full disclosure of HOA was not visible on there Website until it was brought to there attention. The information on meeting and finacials was not being updated in a timely fashion.


Case #2020CV032038 states that they only received 107 Votes but the email sent out said they received 184 who do you trust?


They are petioning the court with the real votes, buit they lied to the members of the association.


See below pages




We are located in the 100 year flood plain, see document below on Pages.


The Highline canal suppies water to Highline Meadows when it flows, what happens when it does not flow? "see page below"


 Please review the attached 1957 Topgraphic map showing that the Highline Canal had water seepage at our current Highline Meadows location that created the creek right where our upper pond is located. see page below



Why is Highline Meadows Board of Directors changing our Declaration?


-Accounting error-They have been charging the Condo owners 9% more than they should have according to the declaration-Now they want to rewrite the Declaration so that they would not need to refund the Condo owners and increase the town homes dues correctly based on Square footage established in the original Declaration



Why is Highline Meadows Board of Directors changing our By laws?


-They want to change the voting quorum to 20% of the owners from 50% (changed by petition of court in 2016 from 75% to 50%) majority which puts the 70 Town-homes in full control of our voting rights


They did not get the 75% majority votes and now they want to petition the court for approval based on voter turnout


Why is Highline Meadows Board of Directors changing our Articles of incorporation? Change name to reflect “Highline Meadows” in Name of corporation

Dont let them get away with no disclosing the asbestos in this communiy
Per the Colorado Department of Heatlh
"All that the Regulation states is that prior to renovation or demolition, any owner, contractor, or HOA MUST test for the presence of asbestos, otherwise, the material is assumed asbestos and MUST be handled accordingly"
See pages at bottom

Dear Board of directors,


We have received and reviewed you provided information pertaining to changes to documents and dues.


It is clear that you have not really told us what is going on and the following are examples of why;


1) Your letter only talks about how much the town homes will have to pay, but you do not mention the condo increase in "dollars" if we authorized your documents. You are admitting that the condos have been overpaying on there dues and possibly that a refund is in order.


2) You are changing the quorum voting to 20% owners and not telling us this upfront.


3) You are not disclosing all the changes either by red line or punch list and leaving it up to the owners to interrupt the old documents versus the new documents


4) Your Amended Declaration did not include " Asbestos"  or even mention that it "exists" in each unit and how the association will deal with abatement, disclosure of common area abatement or unit owner responsibility and health impact.




5) You are providing Cost specific expenditures to support your due increases to the condos that are not relatable to the normally distributed Annual budget and have changed or modified the descriptions of the areas which don't conform to our current budget.


You are not showing the Gasline Replacement in the Budget for $47,140 dollars were did this come from?


You are showing cost of  Water Remediation of $76K-where did this happen and why did the insurance not pay for it?




6) You are hoping that this community will understand these documents and not providing any additional education about them through videos or meetings. You have not provided a full list of "was" and "is" on the changes to the documents and therefore not really telling us all the changes.


There is no way this is going to happen!



Snow water should go into the pond not on th road see page below:
Acm appears to be doing a great job here at Highline Meadows
After 1 year Its great to have people who are not taking us to the cleaners as sheep in the field
It would appear that Densie (5150) may get away with all the stuff she did in the past reported here as facts. Good Riddens to Denise and 5150!
Although the statute of limitations has not run out and the community can come together in a class action suite against her and her company (for fraud )5150 based on the facts!
These facts can be found by going down to the bottom and looking at Pages
The fact we are now strong enough to be without Denise and her posie will make us stronger as we try to fix her mess over the last 15 years
The numbers dont make sense! Where's the money?
Current issues: Roof mansurds appear to be on track
Pot holes and street are in poor condition
Our maintenance person will be leaving soon- Thanks Troy for all your great work.
Now the parking rules are in effect and it appears that towing will occur soon if people dont obey the new rules
The roofing operation next door at the ramparts has been going on for 4 months now with no completion in site. They are not be very considerate in making nosie and disturbing Highline Meadows residents.
Fact: did you know that Braodway Ramparts uses our lift station? Yes they are responsible for all 20% of yearly costs. Somthing they have not been paying over the years.
Still in disbelief? Look at the records below in Pages
Fact: did you know that Highline Meadows used to be a farm and used the water from the highline canal and that 7 Manholes in the ground around the complex were constructed to monitor the ground water which fills the ponds
Denise is gone and she finally got 130 new carpet and paint before her quiting Highline Meadows
WELCOME TO ACM- The new management company
Let this website be a refleftion of the past and hold valuable information
If the new board is smart they would go after Denise and 5150 for fraud
What they still have not painted 130 East Highline... As usual wasting our time and money! As of 6/18 they completed the paintnig but we are still waiting on carpet Today is 7/22/2018
8 months now and going on forevere, now thay want another 1/3 of a million dollars to finish the job







Update Jan2017 ANNUAL REPORT



ASK WHAT ASK WHEN SHOW ME THE PROOF-SEE spending out of control at bottom of this page PDF





Some upset residents could be heard outside the doors of the  meeting as some residents voice their concerns!




Instead of worrying about where the money was actually going, most had petty concerns according to one insider.




We signed up for this mess...... and we put Denise along with 5150 in charge since the days of TMMC and BRC. She is the “King Pin” She will always control us and our MONEY!




If folks would actually look at “where the money was going” and the deceptive practices of the management company. maybe a class action suit could be brought against them.




No one is motivated..... so sit back and prepare to have your money wasted along with potential Fraud.




Look at the budget, do you understand it? Why do they stop at October for the year published for the residents.... when its not “October 2016” it's “January 17, 2017”!




They had plenty of time to actually show the whole year and publish it to the residents. Why do they do it? Come next year you will see as they will have plenty of time to most likely fudge the numbers to their liking.




Just like the spending around this place...Out of Control and follows the themes of the past meaning...What ever you spent last year you will spend more this year. With so many categories and lack of simplicity how can anyone make heads or tails out of the where the money is going and WHY?




Ask where the 1.5 Million dollars Special assessment went? line by line item, and how much was “actually received”. They cant tell you because “they never tracked it” and it all went into one account.




If you think the fellows are wrong just look at the documents attached analyzing the budget for many years now....Not much has changed other than your monthly dues have increased and Denise is still commander in Chief of all of us.




You are paying some of the highest HOA Dues in the City for the value of your property. Have you ever wondered why the Town-home maintenance has such a low cost versus the Condos? But you pay the most money!




You must understand by now how easy it is for the management company to hide and pad expenses in ten Buildings. You folks don't have a clue what is going on.




Until something changes........ like getting Rid of Denise...... you will keep getting taken to the cleaners.




"So suck it Up fools!"










Update November 2016

Finally the HOA tackeld this big safety issue by replacing the broken transformer on the light on Building 130 looking over street

It tooks almost three years as serveral attempts were made no one could fix it!

Stil;l no carpet and paint in building 130 after a full year of Denise Haas personally claiming that this building would get Carpet and Paint within the next month. (nov 2015)

Meeting cancelled at last minute as Sharon has flown the "Denise" 5150 coop and steped down as president.


Told the gutters would be cleaned, as usual gutters not cleaned


Dont exepct anything "but lies" when they tell you three years before that your building will get new carpet and paint--SUE with 5150 has Lied again............... Our building still did not get new paint and carpet.  Why would Sue tell such lies about that when you and your neighbors have suffered with nasty carpet and not been painted in over 20 years?


Walk into Building 130 and see and smell the carpet for yourselve

You cant give away your home due to the squander


Who wants to come to this everyday???  And why are we paying them SO MUCH?


How can we trust SUE?


How can they just write off 1/4 million dollars and claim---"oh well I guess some people would not pay the special assessment"


Why do you still belive that Denise is running our account correctly when it is clear tha the books are crooked and dont make any sense at the end of the year.


You need to learn the history here at highline meadows, you need to look at the facts.





Will a wealth of information on this HOA make them Honest?


How will the Board play there cards now that the facts have been published for the world to see? Will this HOA have justice? Will the people be heard? Will Change occur......Now that the facts have been presented!


Wow, they finally are painting this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One bright spot for Highline Meadows. Are they to walk the straight and narrow from now on? Time will tell.....



 Check your own web page to see that the Board of Directors is withholding important information from this community by not updating this web page and omitting key documents such as Financials from last year and this year.


What Happened now ?  Denise has started her own Management Company Called 5150 Community Management.  We have now a new community manager Sue Daigle who works for Denise.  Denise Haas is Still in charge of our screwed up Finances!!


ASK THIS: What is the extra 75K in OTHER (year End 2013) stated in the Reserves? How do they Track the Special Assessments Monies each year? Are any Special Assessment monies being used for anything but the Fire Systems in the condos and the roofs? Why did no money be put in the roofs last year? Why do they always provide (mail out in Jan)  a 9 or 10 month budget and expenes WHEN WE LIVE IN A  WORLD THAT HAS A 12 MONTH YEAR. What are they hiding?


And Why do they make sure that no all the Documents are posted on the website for such things as Year End Minutes and expenses....I know why.. They dont want you to know...




The time has come for change and transparency by this Board.  We need to cut cost and analyze our spending in the past and current spending habits in order to assure a stable future for this community.


Do you really belive they are spending the money correctly. Just look at this place, why dont they paint now for over 12 years. Do they want it to fall apart? Do they want Condemnation? The answer may be YES.


So when Rory does work he gets a salary but have you ever realized that we might be paying twice for the same work? When a vender does work have you ever realized that the bill could be padded?


The lawyer bill is so big they have to lie about it and keep this community in the dark like always!



Why would they finally sent out the special assessment statements and forget the interest payments that we are paying. They like to hide these monies and never report them.


This INTREST money is unaccounted and could be over 300K, ............how could an HOA get away with this? Why are they still charging interest as if they are a bank. They are not a Bank and are asking the people of this community to charge themselves Interest on there own money. And guess what? They are getting away with it!!!!





INTEREST MONIES??????????????????????????????????



Ask what to these; THEY WONT ANSWER ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


2012 Budget

*Easement Monies- How and Why

*Condo Sale 27K- wheres the Income

*Special Assessment Interest over two years- Wheres the money and Income

*Loss of condo sale 47K or a Lawyer bill- Your right to know

*How can the Utility Audit be over 100K in October then almost nothing in December?

*Why are the numbers so far out in left field in the Budget

*How can you spend over 5K on Clubhouse Electric year after year then spend almost nothing

*Where is the 20% share of cost of the Lift Station from Broad ridge ramparts- how and when do they pay?

*Many and many other errors tracked and documented six years

*Who the hell is writing this budget are why are they so Ignorant to it's members


It is obvious that the Board of Directors belives that no one will ever look at it and has made a number of mistakes.

Did anyone see the budget released at the begining of 2013.  As usual, they only show til Oct 2012, even though it's 2013. That's only 10 months of information at the annual. What are they trying to hide?


Yes its quite the mess this year as Denise has surely failed to review this budget as well as the board before being released.  Only an ape in a cave who cant add would pass it to be the real thing.


Do numbers lie? see below





We dont need to paint the buildings ?????? we should let them fall apart and really have a big mess on our hands!  Ever wonder why they ignore the outside of the buildings and spend all the money on landscaping, irrigation, pond,parking lot etc. Do they know the wood is falling apart from no paint in 12 years??????????????????


Take some time out to check out all the documents on this website and learn about this HOA. You will find that this Website is chock full on issues going back to 1995. Just click on Pages and Documents to get started. Highline Fellows has always held to "Truth" and has presented the facts during the last 6 years. Now it's 2013!!!



 Do numbers lie? see below


We have a dysfunctional Board ;See below the "Dark Side of HOA's"


Do your part and report this activity to DORA by filling out the complaint form below








Why does BRC not post that they manage Highline Meadows??????????



March 2012- Now that the Board has selected BRC as the new Management company with Denise Haas, it would appear that we are still going in the wrong direction with Denise at the wheel leading the sheep into the field just with a new company behind her.


Denise is very wise to the board and the board will follow her wherever she goes since this community has no say in the matter. Its just business and there is nothing we can do about it. No one cares.....................................................about Highline Meadows. We are nothing more than sheep in a field. I  wish it were different..

 As of July 4th 2012 they still have not provided new HOA dues bills as people have to use the old TMMC tickets.  This is a great indication of a poorly ran organization at BRC. To make matter worst some how our property values are being taken down by our HOA.  They sold 130 East highline circle #308 (two Bedroom) for 27K to KRAMER, CALVIN J and did not offer the unit for sale or the best market price.  Sounds like a good buddy deal. Why did our HOA allow this?

Wow, and now they say they lost $47,702 on a lost of condo sale...What is going on?

 YOU CAN FILE A COMPLAINT- BRC is a licensed Real Estate Broker in Colorado


HOA Information and Resource Inquiry and Complaint Form




It would appear that all the efforts by the community to get this process moving have resulted in a grassroots effort to get away from the past and step ourselves into the future.


We still need Justice.  We still have no Vote.  We did not select the management company TMMC or BRC or the Board of Directors.  The Board will not answer where the money has been used in the past! They hide the financial s for 11 months on our Highline Meadows secured Website and don't let anyone see them. Shame on You!


Don't ask where the money has been used! And dont expect ant correspondence with the board of directors since they ignore all our emails requests or never answer the questions fully.


Dont Ask where the Interest "extra monies" are from the special assessment payment system since this is extra money above above and beyond the special assesment 1.5 million dollars........gee where did it go?


We understand that the current owners are not interested in any attempt to overthrow this board and there positions are cemented along with BRC and Denise.   Some People have not given up.   Right now, The community does have a say in what happens to our future. 


* As of Feb 2012 the Highline Meadows Website is 7 Months out of date on the Minutes and Financial.



*Now the website contains some but not all of the information and is 3 months behind as of November 1, 2012.


Despite Our property values falling over 65% and Highline Meadows starting to get fixed we are still falling apart as we continue to pay special assessments and high HOA dues.


The paint and porches are cracking and chipping as the Board of Directors ignore the paint for over 10 years and spend all the money on Landscaping, pool and clubhouse.


We are the poster children for HOA's gone "A Muck" as we are being taken to the cleaners with wool over our eyes and we cant do anything about it.


Some People still care about our money, future and homes at Highline Meadows- Join Them Today

We need the Board of Directors to provide “ Full Disclosure” of the Actual HOA Monies being used in each category. Details of this “Full Disclosure” would include where, when and how the monies were used for such things as;


Common Area Maintenance, Drywall, Plumbing, HVAC, Paint, Misc Maintenance, Electric at Clubhouse, Pump Lift Station, Pool, Clubhouse expenses, Laundry Room expenses, Cell Phone, gas, Snow removal, Exterminator, Carpet and floor, Lights, Security and Exit, Parking lot, Balconies, Landscaping, Pond, Tree trim, Fence, Lawyer cost, Maintenance Man hourly wage and management BRC company Cost and Profit.


It is up to the Board of Directors to provide us with the Insurance details and information regarding coverage, for such things as, water main back-ups, lift station pump failures, Roof Leaks, Drywall (Asbestos) and HVAC Boiler replacements in the Condo buildings.



Even our maintenance person can Do most of the plumbing work and rent a snake from a local facility and do it. But we would rather spend it on third party contractors. :Like  a huge Business!!  And when the buildings need paint..........Like everything around here ....they don't have the money because they already spent it, therefore nothing will be done "like always". 


At what point do you ask how long can the building survive without paint as they chip away?? Then ask yourself why anyone would allow this to happen.


Only this "special assessment" brought in the monies  for the roofs otherwise it would affect there "set budget" which is on "auto pilot" to deduct the cash from our accounts and assure that we have "nothing left" at the end of the year "just like the last 12 Years".


Have you ever asked why they would do the roof but ignore the mansards. And now Are the going to have to remove the edging of the new roof to put on the mansard?


We should still consider a "Class Action Lawsuit". for all the years of not spending the money correctly.

  • Breach of Contract
  • Tort - Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Injunction, Declaratory Action, or Damages


We have presented the questions and have no answers. "How can you bring in 1.5 Million Dollars at the beginning of Jan 2011 and put it all in the 2011  budget.  Then show an accounts receivable of 1.2 million. Why was none of these monies ever shown used in the month of Jan 2011. Where did the money go? Over $$$$$$$$$200K????????????????????????????????


This is why we cant trust these people with our money and need serious help. To make matters worse this is just one small example of how the "books don't make sense" and the "monies are floating all over with no control or accountability".


Most Prior years You cant make "heads or tails" out of the Budget and the Monies.



So, are we really "suing ourselves" with a class action lawsuit.  The answer is "NO" because we "don't have any vote" or say in "way our monies are currently being used", or "how  the budget  is written" or special assessments imposed.


Therefore, in order for this community to gain control of this total neglect of responsibility, and to assure property values are maintained.  The complex needs to run more efficiently, cost effective and in a 1st class order.


One possible answer is to "take the Board of Directors and  prior management company TMMC to court and let the Judge decide".  If we do not do this we will remain on the same path with "no say" in our property as we will continue paying outrageous dues and special assessments which would only show small change (Capitol Repair) over a long period of time (5 years).


Attending the meetings will not stop this board because we cant reach "Quorum" as a community. To make matters worse, they will not answer the questions and have "lied to this community" and have a "hidden agenda" that they are not sharing.


We are being "held by this dictatorship" who we did not vote for and they are taking advantage of us as "Poor Sheep in a Field" ......all the way to the bank. It's business as usual and "you cant change it".


The accounts Receivables has been as high as 325K after the 2008 special Assessment, we have always had very high A/R over 200K since special assessments of 2007. As a matter of fact look at the graph below and see that it barely moved in 2010 while our cash on hand was in the negative!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Say What?????????


As far as the budget, there is always a run on the monies at the end of the year as we seem to be left with nothing for the new year.


Your absolutely right there is something wrong!


I wish more people would question their outrageous spending and inflated budget.


Until these board of directors pick up a calculator and learn to add and subtract and really see where the money was going, we could be in for more of the same with BRC at the wheel.


A huge business and money squandering operation here at Highline Meadows.


BRC writes the budget and the Board signs off on it. No questions asked........ No community Vote is taken on spending or Budget. Leave it up to them and we will always be broke with nothing but buildings that are unpainted with spliting wood and ruined mansurds. On the bright side at least the landscaping will look good.




Even a small group of owners can issue a class action lawsuit.


If this is not done we may not have a chance or any hope left.
