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, 2017-2019

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. <http://www.arapahoegov.com/documentcenter/view/4030> Project construction tentatively set for late October 2018



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, as there will be numerous detours, road closures and traffic flow disruptions.























Quincy Avenue/Gun Club Road intersection improvement project in final design stage
As of Jan, 2017, 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 $14 million (broken down as): 

Federal Contribution: $4,892,000
City of Aurora Contribution: $4,554,000
Arapahoe County Contribution: $4,554,000)

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 Metro District Special Meeting - Thu, Feb 15th, 2018


Our Metro District Board invites all residents to attend a special meeting, on the 15th of Feb, 2018 at 7pm in the Clubhouse. The meeting is being held to discuss the proposed elimination of our annual fees in favor of raising the levy cap (to increase property taxes) in order to fully fund our Metro District’s operational costs. - R. Vaessen


Announcement/Info below was included in a postcard mailed to all residents. I received my copy on the 8th of Feb, 2018:


On May 8, 2018, the Tollgate Crossing Metro District No. 2 will hold a mail ballot election to elect directors and consider ballot issues. The Board of Directors is considering whether to ask voters for authority to levy more property taxes for operations, which would eliminate the need for the $576 annual fees. The proposed question would reduce or eliminate this new tax if the total District levy exceeded a cap. On average, owners could save about $347.50 per home per year. The Board is hosting an informational meeting for residents to learn about the issue and provide input. The meeting will be held at the Tollgate Crossing Club House on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 7:00 p.m, The current proposed ballot language is below:
