Aurora, Colorado - USA

 
Tollgate Crossing Community Website
 

Tollgate Crossing is a great place to live, raise a family, and enjoy life. A vibrant and growing community, close to all the conveniences of a large metropolitan area, yet far enough away from the hubbub of our hectic workplaces.


We all treasure our place at Tollgate Crossing and we would like to welcome you to our community. If you’re new to the area, I’m sure that you will find Aurora, the Front Range, and Colorado to be a vibrant, rewarding and enjoyable place to live. If you are new to Tollgate Crossing, we would like to welcome you to our beautiful community, and hope that you will find it to be a responsive, safe, and secure place to live.


I started this website as a portal for our local Neighborhood Watch, then changed it to split the focus between the Neighborhood Watch and the Tollgate Crossing community. Over the years, it has changed a bit; with the focus shifting back and forth. As of April, 2010, the Tollgate Crossing website no longer serves the Neighborhood Watch (for the greater area of South Eastern Aurora area). I created and maintain a separate website for the Neighborhood Watch. The Tollgate Crossing website now focuses strictly on issues which concern residents of the Tollgate Crossing community. This website is designed to serve residents of Tollgate Crossing (Tollgate and Newbridge (which includes the homes built by Oakwood)). If you think I’m missing something, or there’s something you’d like to see on this web site, please let me know.


This website is not an ‘Official’ government, HOA or management company web page, but members of our HOAs, Metro District and Neighborhood Watch do visit, participate in the email mailing lists, and offer their assistance to keep this web page pertinent, timely and informative. With their input and contributions, I will do my best to keep various meeting dates posted and up to date. I will provide information to help you stay informed of community events and important information. This website will not accept nor endorse advertisements or solicitations to sell products or services. This website is maintained without profit at my personal expense.


If you are a resident of Tollgate Crossing, or interested in our Neighborhood Watch, I encourage you to participate in one of our email mailing lists, or the other services offered by our community. If you have any comments, suggestions or recommendations which you feel will improve the website, I would appreciate your feedback.

(I am not a board member of an HOA (Tollgate, Newbridge or the Townhomes) or the Metro District. I am not employed by a community management company, involved with the HOA(s) or Metro Districts I am a resident of Tollgate Crossing and a Block Captain (volunteer) with the South East Aurora Neighborhood Watch. I’m not sure whether I need any other disclaimers, and I doubt anyone will read this anyway...)

Door-to-Door disposal of household chemicals: Getting rid of paint and other household chemicals is just a call away with the Door-to-Door household Hazardous Waste Program. Sponsored by Aurora Water and Curbside, Inc. The program provides a convenient, cost-effective way for residents to responsibly dispose of household chemicals, including paint, batteries, used oil, spray cans and much more (for a cost of $15.00) Residents interested in the service should call 1-800-449-7587 to schedule an appointment, obtain a list of acceptable items and to receive a collection kit that holds the chemicals securely until pickup. Curbside staff can help older residents and those with disabilities prepare their materials for disposal. For more information, call 303-739-7372 or email: <hcr@auroragov.org>, or visit the website: <https://www.auroragov.org/cms/one.aspx?pageId=2037021>

Tollgate Crossing Social Committee: A function of our HOA (the Tollgate Crossing HOA) is beautification of the community, promotion of family activities and special events dedicated to the residents of our community.

Currently chaired by one of our residents, the committee is looking for input, suggestions and volunteers. If you’d like to help out, please see the Volunteer page for details.
