Copy of the Covenants

Below are links to copies of the covenants for the Pinery. If you have any questions, please contact the PHA Office at (303) 841-5305 or email

Pinery Architectural Standards

Covenants direct that the Architectural Committee develop "standards for reviewing submittals". Therefore, the Pinery Architectural Standards work in concert with covenants and can guide you through the submittal process.

Finding Your Filing Number

If you do not know your filing number, you can go to Assessor Parcel Search on the Douglas County Assessor's Office Website. Type in your last name only and/or the address number and the street name.

NOTE: Enter the street name only (without north, east, place, or way). For example, enter "Windlawn" not "East Windlawn Way". Also, if you enter the name, it is best to enter only the last name. (Enter "Smith" instead of "John Smith").

The filing number will be the number after "The Pinery". For example "LOT 2 BLK 3 THE PINERY #1" would be filing number 1.

The following documents require Adobe Reader and range from 1.5MB to 1.7MB. If you do not have a copy of Adobe Reader, you can download a free copy from the Adobe website.

Covenant Violations

In addition to reviewing submittals, the ARC assists residents in resolving covenant violations which occur in the Pinery. In a recent issue of the Pinery Homeowner, the ARC ran an updated ‘Policy Statement’ relative to Notices of Covenant Violation. You might wonder how enforcement action for a violation occurs.

Typically, the ARC is contacted by a resident who is concerned about unapproved changes or activity they have observed. An ARC committee member is assigned to review the situation. The committee member is not given the name of the complainant and it is ARC policy not to reveal the name of the person who made the inquiry.

The committee member reports the results of their inspection at the subsequent meeting of the ARC. If confirmed, a letter is sent to the residence, pointing out that the change or activity is a covenant violation and requesting appropriate correction. In many cases, this results in resolution of the problem.

If the problem persists, the Notice of Violation process is initiated. The committee member inspects the property prior to each meeting. After each confirmed inspection, a letter, for a minimum of two letters, are sent, each of which outlines the violation and invites the resident to discuss the situation at an ARC meeting. The letter(s) also outline the ARC policy relative to violations. In the vast majority of cases, the issue is resolved during the course of these letters.

At any time during this process, the resident is welcome to come to a meeting of the Architectural Review Committee to discuss the situation.

The Second Notice letter indicates that the committee will vote at the upcoming meeting (day, time, and location are given) relative to filing a Notice of Covenant Violation with the Douglas County Clerk and Recorder relative to the issue. The resident is invited to attend the meeting. The committee member inspects one final time and makes a recommendation at the meeting. If the committee acts to file the notice, the resident receives a letter which includes a copy of the notice and outlines steps needed to resolve the violation so that the ARC is able to file a Notice of Compliance to cancel the previously filed Notice of Violation.

It is always the hope of the ARC that problems can be resolved with minimal action for enforcement.
