*FYI: This is my personal (not for profit) website, it’s not an official part of the HOA or Metro District. I’ll decide who gets to promote/post announcements on a case-by-case basis. I can’t promise everyone equal time, but I will consider any groups that promote activities for/within our community. See the policy and agreement page for additional info.

Tollgate Crossing Bulletin Boards:

Back in January of 2012, I created a set of bulletin boards for the Tollgate Crossing community. The bulletin boards are a web based place where residents, family and friends can discuss matters relevant to our community. I set up four broad categories for discussions: Classifieds, Events, Talk, and Meta. The bulletin boards are free to use, and I hope they facilitate more communication and a broader sense of community in Tollgate Crossing. Please feel free to sign up today. Tell your neighbors, family and friends. Chat it up in the new Tollgate Crossing bulletin boards. Web page: <http://www.tollgatecrossing.org/bulletinboard/index.php>

Quincy Avenue/Gun Club improvements, 2016-2017

I know that everyone in our community/area is very keen on any news regarding changes or improvements to Quincy and Gun Club. The good news: The intersection will be getting a major improvement/upgrade over the next two years. Hopefully the information below (and links referenced) will help address some of your/our questions and concerns regarding traffic in/around our community.


On the 24th of Feb, 2016, I received an email notification from Arapahoe County concerning the planned improvement/upgrade scheduled for the Quincy/Gun Club intersection.  Be sure to check out all the links mentioned below. The traffic flow animation link on YouTube is especially informative: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dsEZ8CvWZs&feature=youtu.be>.


To see all the available information (and there’s a lot of information) you’ll have to follow all the links found within this announcement and the web pages linked via this announcement. Once the construction begins, we may find our commutes to be especially challenging. See the original announcement: <http://www.arapahoegov.com/civicalerts.aspx?AID=537>























Quincy Avenue/Gun Club Road intersection improvement project in final design stage
As of Feb, 2016, Arapahoe County Public Works and Development, in conjunction with the City of Aurora, is working on a final design for improvements to the intersection of Quincy Avenue and Gun Club Road. The total project cost is estimated to be $12.7 million (broken down as): 

Federal Contribution: $4,892,000
City of Aurora Contribution: $3,904,000
Arapahoe County Contribution: $3,904,000)

The project improvements will include the construction of a ‘Partial Continuous Flow Intersection’. The benefit of a partial continuous flow intersection is that the north/south left turn movement on Gun Club Road is accommodated at the same time the north and southbound through movements are occurring on Gun Club Road. This will significantly help traffic flow through the intersection.

Public meetings will be held during the summer of 2016, and construction is estimated to begin in 2017. More information on this project can be found at <www.arapahoegov.com/index.aspx?nid=1570> The Arapahoe County Public Works and Development Department is located at: 6924 S. Lima St., Centennial 80112. For more information about this and other projects, please call 720-874-6500 or visit Public Works and Development webpage at <http://www.arapahoegov.com/index.aspx?nid=519>

Tollgate Crossing Garage Sale - Friday & Saturday, May 19/20, 2017

It’s that time of year again. Our community is having a garage sale. This year’s event begins at 8:00am on Friday the 19th, continuing through Saturday the 20th. Residents are free to change the hours at their discretion. Also, if residents would like to continue the sale on Sunday they are welcome to do so. HOA Management will set up some large banners a week prior to the garage sales, in order to announce the event. You can post additional signage to help promote your specific garage sale, but you must take down the signs afterwards.


We are once again expecting extensive homeowner participation and hope that this annual event will help provide you with an opportunity to earn a little extra cash, clean up your basement, or find that long lost ‘Backstreet Boys’ album you’ve been looking for!


In order to be ‘listed’ on a community garage sale map, please sign up by sending an email (deadline is May 11th) to: <tcgaragesale@yahoo.com>.

Xcel’s Power-line expansion project / Public Hearings - 2 & 16 May, 2017


Xcel’s Pawnee-Daniels Park power line expansion project has entered a new phase of development - They’ve (Xcel)  applied for permits to build a new power substation just north of/adjacent to Tollgate Crossing III (NE corner), and add additional power lines right through the center of Tollgate Crossing.


Public hearings (a requirement before permits can be granted) will take place in May of 2017. If you want your opinion/voice to be heard (on these topics), please plan on attending the meetings.


  1. The first public hearing will take place on the 2nd of May, 2017 in the Arapahoe Room at 6954 S. Lima St., Centennial, CO 80112, at 6:30pm. The first meeting will be held (before the County Planning Commission) to consider/discuss case numbers ASI16-004 and L16-006 - The installation/location of additional power lines that will run through Tollgate Crossing (and many other communities of SE Aurora).

  2. The second public hearing will take place on the 16th of May, 2017 in the East Hearing Room, Administration building, 5334 S. Prince St., Littleton, CO 80120, at 9:30am. The second meeting will be held (before the Board of County Commissioners) to consider/discuss case number ASI16-004 - The construction/location of a new/additional power substation directly north (adjacent) of Tollgate Crossing.


These hearings are being held as part of the state and local government’s authority in making planning decisions for matters of statewide interest. These meetings will help the local government to identify, designate, and regulate activities (such as site selection and construction of major facilities of a public utility) of state interest through a local permitting process. The general intention is to allow for local governments to maintain control over particular development projects even where the development project has statewide impact.


If you are at all concerned about Xcel’s planned expansion/construction project(s), please plan on attending this public meeting/hearing. The health, safety and property values of all South East Aurora residents could be impacted by Xcel’s plans.
