 This site is hosted by your ACC members as officially recorded with Douglas County, in compliance with the legal requirements of our original and still current 1971 Covenants

This Website will attempt to provide advice, history and clarity to the ongoing issues in our community. 

 

While our primary focus and Covenant responsibilities are related to Architectural issues, we have had to also address and inform our owners about ongoing activities that could well impact our quality of life, use of your property and property values in general.

 

Unfortunately, a lot of disruptive disinformation is being sent out by a so called Sage Port "HOA". This is just a small private group with a core of 6 or so community control activists that has dedicated the last 20 years attempting (and failing) at establishing their group with total legal regulatory and enforcement powers over our community.

 

Our community is governed by a legal civil contract which is part of your deed and binding on all owners, our Protective Covenants . This document, just extended to 2026, clearly spells out the rights, restrictions and obligation of our home owners.   We feel that by presenting the facts and easy access to all the legal documents surrounding our Protective Covenants we can help cut through all the misdirection, confusion and ongoing disruption being created. 

 

As your Covenants ACC Members we are 100% committed to protecting the property values and rights of our owners.

 

Latest News - Items - Issues

County’s slash-mulch site opens for the season April 4

Douglas County slash-mulch site

Have you been spending your stay-at-home time doing yard clean-up? Great news – removing tree limbs, shrubs and brush (slash) from your property is essential for wildfire risk reduction. Now there are two Douglas County locations to dispose of this unwanted slash.

Douglas County’s slash-mulch site, at 1400 Caprice Drive in Castle Rock, opens April 4 and will remain open on Saturdays only from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. through October 31. The perfect place to dispose of limbs, shrubs and brush, the site also gives residents the opportunity to go home with fresh mulch.

The County also maintains a slash-mulch site, open year-round on Saturdays from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. at 7828 S. Colo. 67 (2.5 miles north of Deckers).

Due to the current COVID-19 public health crisis, please follow any instructions from on-site staff, stay in your vehicle until you are ready to unload and observe the social distancing mandate of at least 6 feet from others unloading their vehicles.  

Acceptable items at both sites include tree limbs, loose pine needles, shrubs, brush with a maximum length of 6 feet and a maximum diameter of 12 inches. Please note all loads must be covered upon arrival to the slash-mulch site.

Items that will not be accepted at either site include appliances, dirt, grass, household trash, lumber, railroad ties, roots, stumps and weeds.

During open season a County operated loader will be available to load free wood chips for homeowners to use as mulch. Material can be picked up anytime during the season the site is open to accept slash.

In the event of inclement weather, please call 303.663.6274 to ensure that the site will be open as scheduled. 

Summer 2018

 

We are pleased to announce an addition to our Sage Port #2 ACC, George Parsons, a new member of our community has accepted our offer to fill our last opening on the Committee.

Our Covenants ACC is allowed to have up to 3 members, these positions can be held for life, which provides stability to the community.  While there has been little building over the last few year, we are now seeing an increase in new homes and we felt we needed a final member who could provide us with expert advice on the more complex issues around new construction.

We are extremely fortunate that George was willing to accept our open position. His building background goes back decades, currently he is the principle of Park Vista Builders in Colorado Springs which specializes in custom Commercial and Residential homes.  As builder who has seen and worked in communities all across the Front Range he and his wife specifically selected Sage Port #2 as the ideal location to build their retirement home! A welcome addition to our community and ACC.

 

No new Subdivisions off Tenderfoot!

We have gotten a number of calls from owners rightly concerned about the 22-acre lot East of Tenderfoot that was just sold. Owners are worried about what was going into that area. Well the good news is that the lot is part of the Sage Port #2 subdivision, so we would have total control of the usage - NO expansion of the Jellystone Camper Park or any other such development could take place. In researching the sale we were able to establish that the lot is restricted to only one home and outbuildings plus it cannot be subdivided, so not only will this provide a nice permanent buffer to the East, it will also have no impact to owners in that area.
 

Building Permits

Before starting any new projects, it is important you contact us first for a review and approval! The Building Dept will not issue a permit without our ACC approval. For simple items like deck repairs the issue can normally be covered by a phone call or email. Another positive action, while not required, should still be done. Talk to your neighbors about your project, especially if you will be having work crews over. This is just a common courtesy we should all extend to each other. 
 

Important Legal Information for New & Current Owners

All owners need to be aware of the restrictions and bindings on your property deeds as stipulated by our Protective Covenants, which is a legal contract between our owners which establishes the regulation and governance of our community.

We are fortunate and somewhat unique in that Sage Port #2 unlike most communities in CO has NO regulatory HOA under our Covenants (just extended to 2026) nor is required to have one under Colorado Law!  Our Covenants only establish an ACC which is the only regulatory authority over Sage Port #2 home owners.

Sage Port #2 has been and continues to be 100% HOA Free for nearly half a Century!

Unfortunately, we have a small private Sage Port "HOA" group that has been contacting new owners and applicants for building permits under their so called HOA Banner. If you should be contacted by a John Manka or a Mark Hesse, who have been representing themselves as ACC approver for this "HOA" group, or any other members of the so-called Sage Port HOA (actually some are not even Sage Port #2 owners), please be aware that they have absolutely NO regulatory or ACC authority under our Covenants, they are not even recognized as a community group under our Covenants! 

You have no obligation to provide them plans, information or even talk to them!

If you are being harassed by them please contact us at once!

 Our current Covenants ACC members and Building Permit approvers as recorded with Douglas County are:

Wilfred Magnan - Dennis Nuttall - George Parsons  

 

As owners we all have a stake in protecting and maintaining our property rights, home values and quality of life by being informed and aware of individuals and groups actively attempting to unilaterally grant themselves regulatory authority over Sage Port #2 owners in direct violation of our Covenants
