One of the biggest perks residents of Sterling Ranch enjoy is close proximity to two of Colorado’s beautiful state parks: Chatfield State Park and Roxborough State Park. With its large reservoir, Chatfield especially conjures images of summer activities such as boating, paddle boarding, and jet skiing. But you can enjoy the parks all year round without waiting for summer! Both offer activities throughout the year for a variety of ages and interests.
Best of all, many of the classes and events offered by Colorado State Parks are free with a parks pass—something every Sterling Ranch resident receives annually at no extra cost. And while Chatfield and Roxborough are the nearest parks, your state parks pass is good for all 41 of Colorado’s State Parks, so you’re free to venture further from home and take full advantage of Colorado’s natural beauty.
Water is a precious resource—especially in a semi-arid climate like ours in Colorado. With an increasing population and decreasing amounts of annual precipitation, it’s more important now than ever to take action to steward our water supply and thoughtfully prepare for the future.
A recent article in ColoradoBiz Magazine, South Platte River Heroes, highlights the efforts being made in the community to address the water shortage issue head-on. Investments made by partners including The Greenway Foundation, Denver Water, The Colorado Water Conservation Board, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife have been critical in expanding storage space in Chatfield Reservoir.
As a master-planned community in close proximity to Chatfield Reservoir, Sterling Ranch has made water conservation one of its ten guiding principles. We are pioneering the way towards smart and sustainable water usage, and applaud all of the efforts made in our great state to ensure that it remains a wonderful and vibrant place to live.
This Winter, the growing community of Sterling Ranch has named Heather Calme to serve as its Architectural & Community Standards Director.
After working for years on the initial visioning and land plan designs for Sterling Ranch, as the Project Manager with architectural firm B+Y Architects, Heather went on to serve the community since as a consultant helping with design standards management. Her move now, into this critical full-time position, comes just in time for Sterling Ranch to begin construction on two new villages in 2019.
In this role, Calme will help with the oversight of the community’s day-to-day building standards, maintaining relationships with the individual homebuilders, vendors and residents. Specifically, as both new and existing residents choose to enhance their properties, she will provide education on Sterling Ranch’s design principles and will help them finesse their plans in pursuit of community approval. She is part of the CCMC team, the community’s management firm hired in 2017 to maintain the operations of Sterling Ranch.
