Peregrine Board of Directors
Appreciation of service

Following the Nov. 17, 2021 annual meeting, Peregrine Master Association Board President Andrew Bird resigned from the board and is no longer a member. The community and the current Board thank Mr. Bird for his five years of service. During his tenure, the community made substantial investments in landscaping, website development, branding, and contract negotiation for the neighborhood. He has worked with countless vendors and handled several key issues pertaining to the greater needs of Peregrine. The community is grateful for Mr. Bird’s service.

Please join us in thanking Andrew Bird for his time and commitment in maintaining Peregrine as a Premiere Mountainside Community.

Landscaping & Infrastructure Committee
2022 Projects Approved
At the October board meeting, several landscaping projects were reviewed and approved for completion in 2022. Specifically, the projects will address some much needed rejuvenation at the corners of Ruststone Court, Heartland Way and Needlegrass Lane. 

Ruststone Court – Install rock between curb and sidewalk from utility box west of Ruststone Court down to the intersection of Ruststone and W. Woodmen, to include the corner triangle. Rock will match the existing rock on the southeast corner.

Heartland Way – Install rock between curb and sidewalk from utility box west of Heartland Way to the corner, to include the corner triangle. Rock will match the existing rock on the southeast corner. Additionally, we will renovate the existing landscaping on the southwest corner and install 40 feet of retaining stone to preclude erosion at the corner of Heartland Way and W. Woodmen.

Needlegrass Lane – Install rock between the curb and sidewalk approximately 20 feet west of Needlegrass Lane to include the corner triangle. Also install 60 feet of rock retaining wall around the upper west corner of Needlegrass, refurbish the east corner and install rock from the corner to the east approximately 20 feet.

These updates will provide a much-needed revival to these landscaped corners along W. Woodmen Road and continue to make Peregrine beautiful throughout.

Safety & Security Update
Securing your garbage totes

As you all know well, we have days with extreme wind in Peregrine. And as luck would have it, they always seem to occur on Mondays…garbage day!

You may think your garbage is fine when you leave for work in the morning. But, it doesn’t take much wind to blow off the top of your tote and spread your garbage all over the street and neighborhood for everyone to see. Thankfully we have great neighbors and wonderful garbage service workers that will clean up after small issues. But, please don’t place that burden on your neighbors.

We kindly ask (and require in our covenants) that you always secure the tops of your totes with a bungee cord. These can easily be purchased at any home improvement store for less than $1. We have negotiated with GFL that they will take the time to unlatch the cords to remove our trash so that we can secure our lids on harsh weather days.

If you need any assistance on how to install these, please reach out to any board member as we are happy to help. Please do your part in keeping Peregrine clean and free of trash.
