Peregrine Board of Directors

Serving Your Community

The Peregrine Board of Directors Election is scheduled for Nov. 17th at the Annual Membership Meeting. Applications for Candidates are being accepted now and must be received before Oct. 1st to include the candidate’s name on the ballot.

The Peregrine Master Association will have one Board seat open during this election.

Please consider this opportunity to serve the greater Peregrine community. It’s a rewarding role that ensures Peregrine remains a Premier Mountainside Community, protects everyone’s property investment and ensures that homeowner feedback is incorporated in the evolution of Peregrine.

If you would like to know more, please contact any current board member through our Contact Us page. We also encourage you to attend our next board meeting on Oct. 13, prior to the Nov. 17 annual meeting.


Peregrine Aware
City’s Sidewalk Program

Peregrine residents enjoy walking, jogging and visiting on our sidewalks. But who is responsible when they fall into disrepair? While the HOA and City own miles of sidewalks on main streets or common areas, homeowners are responsible for the sidewalks adjacent to their property. As sidewalks begin to deteriorate from weather, age, tree roots, and wear, it’s important that residents know their options for sidewalk replacement.

The City of Colorado Springs offers two options for the City to replace the sidewalk in front of a home. Both options can be viewed on their website Concrete Maintenance | Colorado Springs. A request can be made on this site for the City to inspect the sidewalk. They will give it a rating, from high importance severity to low severity. Based on the rating, the sidewalk can either be placed on one of the City’s concrete repair lists or the property owner may enter into the Concrete Cost Share Program.

To read more about the options, check out our recent blog City Sidewalk Maintenance Information.


Peregrine Tree Celebration
54 New Peregrine Trees

Thank you for joining us during our Peregrine Tree Celebration events this summer!
  • We planted a new community tree at the corner of W. Woodmen Road and Kittridge Avenue for our Peregrine Tree Celebration kickoff event.
  • We hosted Dr. Christine Biermann, UCCS Geography and Environmental Studies professor, to learn about the native trees and forest ecosystems of Colorado Springs in her presentation titled, “Exploring Our Urban Forest”.
  • Our Landscaping and Infrastructure Committee led two neighborhood walks/hikes that explored the various trees and trails within Peregrine.
  • And finally, our community has planted 54 new neighborhood trees through the use of our Expedited Tree Planting form. If you would like to add a new tree to your yard, there is still time to be included in the COS150 Tree Challenge! Once you submit your form with Peregrine’s ARC, we will share the information with the City to be included in their tally.
Peregrine’s Tree Celebration coincides with the 150th anniversary of the City of Colorado Springs. Thank you for participating in our events and making Peregrine greener!

Peregrine Community Events
An Eventful Summer 

We hope you have enjoyed the return of Peregrine’s social events this summer. Cinema in the Park and Music in the Park were great successes! It is so wonderful to see residents socializing in the park and enjoying the company of neighbors.

Check out our Music in the Park Photo Gallery!

Our next event is the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot! Mark your calendars for Thursday, Nov. 25 at 8:30 a.m.!

If you have suggestions or want to help with our future events, please email Michelle McArthur, our Community Projects/Events Committee Chair.

 


Fire Mitigation / Neighborhood Chipping Event

Register NOW for the September 20 Chipping Event

Peregrine’s recent grass fire was a scary reminder of the importance of fire mitigation in our community. We all need to work together to keep Peregrine safe.

The Colorado Springs Fire Department is offering Peregrine a second chipping event this year. The second and final event of this year will be the week of Sept. 20. You must register for this event by Friday, Sept. 17. 

To participate, you must meet certain requirements and follow the guidelines set forth by CSFD. To learn about these requirements and to register your address, go to Neighborhood Chipping Program.

If you are unsure of what wildfire issues to look for or how to participate in the chipping program, please call Adam Wisely with the Colorado Springs Fire Department at 719-385-7368. They are willing to set an appointment for a free onsite consultation. This is a great service to ensure you are following the guidelines and they are able to collect your chipping piles.

Check out our recent blog post on Spring Fire Mitigation and Tips.
