News and Announcements!

Fossil Ridge Metro Districts 1-3 have become aware of a serious safety issue for Solterra residents.  General Shale Mine owns the property adjacent to Solterra on the west side.  It is private property, so any intrusion on to the mine area is considered trespassing.  While it is unlawful to trespass on this property, our primary concern is for the safety of our young residents.
It has been reported that residents are accessing this private property for sledding and swimming in the pond.   As illustrated below, there is a large 20-foot deep pond on the property.  The Lakewood Police indicate that, if they were to receive a call to save an individual from any form of danger, it would be extremely difficult to gain access to the area and/or reach the injured person in a timely manner because of the steep grade around the pond. 
Some residents living adjacent to the mine have installed gates leading onto General Shale Mine property.  While the gate may have been approved, use of the gate to enter the mine property is considered trespassing which is punishable under the law.
We strongly encourage residents to respect the owners of the shale mine and immediately desist from trespassing onto the private property.

The location and number of filings in our community- Click Here 

The construction of community like Solterra involves separating the effort into projects known as filings, which are registered with the city.  As the work on a filing is satisfactorily completed, the FRMD accepts the filing from the developer and assumes responsibility for it.  In community meetings, these areas are frequently only referred by their filing number.

In an effort to better familiarize community members with the location and number of each filing, the attached map provides information residents may find useful.
