Neighborhood Chipping Program
Additional date for 2021!
Through the great effort of Property Manager, Derek Patterson, the Colorado Springs Fire Department’s Wildfire Mitigation Program has added an additional chipping event to Peregrine for 2021!
Our TWO dates are May 17, 2021 and September 20, 2021
*All chipping dates are the “week of”, meaning that material must be stacked curbside by 8:00am Monday morning and will be picked up by the end of the week.
More details will be provided as you must register for these events. You can also visit Colorado Springs Wildfire Mitigation page for the most up-to-date information.
Snow Removal in Peregrine
As we enter the snowiest months in Colorado, it’s time to gear up and enjoy the outdoors! Our neighborhood offers excellent sledding opportunities at Woodmen Valley Park or snowshoeing through the hoodoos. But before you build your first snowman, remember to break out your snow shovel and clear the walkways around your house.
Within Peregrine, we kindly ask that all residents remove snow from personal walkways within 24 hours after the end of the falling snow. This includes all sidewalks on your lot that border a street. This allows all residents to walk comfortably and safely on the sidewalks throughout the neighborhood.
Check out our Snow Removal in Peregrine blog post here, which provides more details regarding snow removal within Peregrine and Colorado Springs.
– March 10 – Board Meeting – 6pm – via Zoom
– March 27 – Peregrine Community Egg Hunt
We have planned social activities for 2021 but all events will be monitored closely given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. First and foremost, our priority is to keep our community safe. We will monitor El Paso County Health Department protocols and make decisions accordingly. If you have suggestions or want to help, please email Michelle McArthur, our Social Events Committee Chair.
