The board listened to your concerns and has modified the November draft of the revised covenants. You may view the final version on our Documents page, along with a red-lined version, showing the changes we have made from the November version. Also posted is a comparison spreadsheet which is useful to analyze the differences between the current (1956) Covenants and the proposed (April 2019) Covenants.

You will be getting a hard copy of the proposed (April 2019) Covenants soon, when you receive your ballot from your block captain, anticipated, April 13, 2019.

The Board has heard your feedback & is in the process of revising the Revisions and they are coming soon! In the meantime, read the minutes of the meetings held Jan. 22 & 23 discussing the revised Covenants and see the various comments and suggestions the Board has received.

First, thank you for taking on the responsibility of running the HOA and giving things care and consideration.  I have re-read the covenants and do feel that there are some that could use slight updating or clarification, such as #1 which references no professional use of the residence, when of course, we have people who have home offices.  #2 reference to servants on the premises and # 10, which now should include bees on the premises, since that is legal in Denver. I also see a conflict in the wording of #3 and #7.   Is there a master map of the utility easements?  In regard to the Achitectural Control Committee, is the committee not legit because of no duly recorded written instrument?  Before I would vote to re-affirm the committee, I would like to see the guidelines and policies currently being used by the committee.  What are the qualifications of the committee members?  What is the appeal process?  Are the guidelines strictly the covenant items or are there other updated ones that take into consideration innovation of materials since 1956?  Thank you for the opportunity to review these items.  Unfortunately I can't attend the meeting as I have class on Wednesday nights.

"It is very clear from the 2 meetings held that there is Much more interest in these proposed HOA changes, than was anticipated.  Many of the comments were valid and well thought out, and changes to the proposal were suggested and some promised.  Clearly, the Architecture Committee has spent some real time on their initial ""Amended HOA Covanents & Building Restrictions"" Feb. [ ], 2019 Proposal, and we appreciate their effort.  However, the original rules have lasted 62 years, so we need to take the time to insure that we do this correctly.  We Do Not want to have to continually repeat this process.  I believe that it's clear that we need to slow down, listen to everyone and All the concerns, and insure we have the wording right so it can last another 50+ years.  
My comment/recommendation is this- We need to slow down!  

I do not think it's reasonable to try to cram this vote through before our April Annual Neighborhood Meeting.  We need to have the new proposal available to all neighborhood members, and to then have NEW MEETINGS to discuss the New ""Amended HOA Covanents & Building Restrictions"" proposal and any and all changes made from the original ""Amended HOA Covanents & Building Restrictions""  Feb. [ ], 2019 proposal.  I believe this is the Only fair way to proceed.  It is not too much to ask to slow down and make sure we do this correctly.  Even if this means waiting until the 2020 Annual Neighborhood Meeting to finalize a new proposal that is fully vetted and agreed upon by a true majority of all our neighborhood members, that is the best way to proceed.  Please slow this process down- our houses are often our largest assets, people need to feel included and comfortable with this process; not rushed.  "

Cherry Point HOA Meeting Notice - 1/22/19 & 1/23/19

posted Jan 9, 2019, 10:10 AM by Neal Meier   [ updated Jan 9, 2019, 10:24 AM ]

The Cherry Point HOA Board is inviting you to attend an information meeting to review and discuss the proposed revisions to the current CC&Rs (Code Covenants & Restrictions). Members of the HOA Board will be present to discuss and respond to questions. 

The meeting will be held at TJ High School from 6:00 - 8:00 PM: 
  • Tuesday January 22, 2019 
  • Wednesday January 23, 2019 
As many of you know, the CC&Rs have not been updated for more than 60 years. Times have changed since this subdivision was created and we need to update the CC&Rs as well. Members of the HOA Board (and Block Captains) have worked for months to review / discuss / improve and refine this original document to better align with current homeowner lifestyles, market conditions and general improvements to our beautiful neighborhood. Changes affected include (but are not limited to) 
  • Improving CC&R language in general, making terms clearer to follow. 
  • Better alignment of the City of Denver’s Planning Regulations. 
  • Helping to simplify Architectural Reviews 
    •  Remodels, Additions and Fences 
  • Short Term Leasing and Renting 

As noted in several past newsletters, this CC&R update will require formal vote of the Cherry Point Subdivision Homeowners. We expect the voter packets to be distributed to all residences by early February 2019. The proposed text of the CC&Rs has been posted since mid-December, 2018 on the Cherry Point website. 


Our HOA Board wants your feedback and support of this monumental effort. These two meetings will be your opportunity to provide comments and share feedback in person to members of the Board. So that we can hear from as many as possible, each homeowner will be offered 3-minutes commentary time, like that of a public meeting. You can also provide written commentary as well. Please feel free to share that with HOA Board -- cherry-point-hoa-board@googlegroups.com Some of you already have. 

Like you, the HOA Board wants what’s best for this subdivision and the Cherry Point neighborhood. Please take the time to be a part of this major event. 

Thank you in advance. 

Ken Cilia                      HOA Board President 
Neal Meier                  HOA Board Vice President 
Teresa Sparkman       HOA Treasurer 
Karen Gebhardt         HOA Board Member 
Michael McCloskey    HOA Board Member
