*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>

Fun for everyone at the Arapahoe County Fair - Thu-Sun, Jul 27-30th, 2017

Mark your calendar for four days of family fun and entertainment at the 2016 Arapahoe County Fair, July 27 - 30, just east of E-470 on Quincy Avenue in Aurora. There are 4-H shows and activities throughout the Fair and on Saturday, general admission includes the 4-H Youth Livestock Auction at 6:30 p.m. in the Livestock Pavilion.


The Youth Livestock Auction is a long-standing tradition at the Fair where citizens and businesses are invited to attend and bid on locally-raised lambs, hogs, goats, poultry, rabbits and beef in support of local 4-H youth. Proceeds go directly to the individual 4-H exhibitors to invest in their future education and to help offset the cost of raising the animal. The auction is an independent 501(c)3 and your purchases and

add-ons may be tax-deductible.


Arapahoe County 4-H is a youth development program offered through Colorado State University Extension that brings together members, ages 5-18, to learn life skills, leadership skills, build friendships and have fun. 4-H has long been the heart of the Arapahoe County Fair. Local youth spend months preparing projects and animals for the Fair, where they contend for prize ribbons, cash premiums and bragging rights.

In addition to the Youth Livestock Auction, discover the 4-H Home Economic and General Projects from Woodworking and Baking to Sewing, Photography and Cake Decorating throughout the Fair displayed in the exhibition hall. There are also pre-fair events including the new Cat Show July 22, Dog Show July 23 and Fashion Revue July 27.


Activities Include:

Concerts, Dock Dogs, Mutton Bustin', Kiddie Tractor Pull. Kiddie Stage Show - The Magic Bean, Petting Farm, Tractor Pulls, Rodeos, Truck Pulls, Unlimited Carnival Rides, Open Class & 4-H Exhibits, Fireworks on Friday & Saturday night (9:30pm).


Admission includes unlimited carnival rides, fireworks, concerts on the main stage, rodeos, the high-flying dock dogs, 4-H exhibits, open class contests, tractor pulls and motor sports. Midway Games, Craft Brew Fest, Fair Kick-Off Dinner and other select activities are sold separately.


The Arapahoe County Fair will be held July 27 - 30, with 4-H activities throughout. Pre-sale daily admission tickets are available online through 4 p.m., July 27 for $10 plus a convenience fee (for credit card processing). Day of event tickets are $15.00 (cash only).
