Grass Close Up



Cherry Creek Vista Park and Recreation District owns and maintains seven tennis courts, a swimming pool, six parks, and six playgrounds. The District also maintains 2.6 miles of county rights-of-way along

Havana Street, Orchard Road, and portions of Cherry Creek Drive. The District also maintains the adjacent brick privacy fence along those same rights-of-way.



Given the delay in opening this season, the Board is scheduling a Special meeting to discuss membership policies, within the next few days. Meeting information will be posted soon. At the District’s last Board meeting, a timeline update for construction completion was provided. The anticipated Grand Opening date for the last week of June is later than our typical date of a Memorial Weekend opening, but weather permitting, we are planning to keep the pool open past Labor Day Weekend.

A mail ballot election was held on the 3rd day of May 2022.

Lakeview Cell Tower Update

Update: Crown Castle is holding a neighborhood outreach meeting on June 1. Details for this meeting are provided below and a link to the mailer distributed by Crown Castle per Arapahoe County's process, is below.

Meeting Date:  Wednesday June 1, 2022, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Location: Koelbel Library, 5955 S Holly St, Centennial, CO 80121

Koelbel Meeting Room A

"Granting of permission by the Arapahoe Library District to use library facilities does not constitute endorsement by the Library District staff or Board of Trustees."

Outreach notice document provided by Crown Castle

The Board has confirmed that the modified design is an expansion under the original 2005 lease agreement, with the cell tower lessee, Crown Castle. Two additional providers will be added within the current leased area, which will include a larger service building and a mono-pine tower that will be located to the West of the building space, to replace the current flag pole tower. In consideration for the change in design and re-location of the tower, Crown Castle will be installing additional trees and shrubs surrounding the building.

Arapahoe County zoning, planning and official notices will be a part of this approval process, outside the purview of the district and its board.

Please note, the District was obligated to adhere to the terms of the current lease agreement, which included this lease expansion option. Verizon Wireless is planning to occupy one of the new tower locations.

Please contact the County Planning Department to get updates on the progress of the plan and approval.
