On July 17, a dozen of your Discovery neighbors gathered for a 3 hour work session to clear weeds from a deserving resident's yard. It was hard, hot work, but the result was a substantial improvement in the appearance of a Discovery property - which is good for all of us. An added benefit is that when neighbors work with other neighbors, it builds a stronger community. All who participated have the satisfaction of time well spent, new friendships, and having made a genuine contribution to Discovery.
We will schedule another property makeover in August, and ask again for resident participation via an e-mail announcement. Please consider volunteering a few hours. You will find it well worth your time.
"DNA" is the Discovery Neighbor Assistance, program funded by your voluntary contributions. The program uses resident and Board volunteer labor and outside purchase of goods and services to assist deserving Discovery residents who need a little help.
Discovery is a unique development, located within the Colorado Springs city limits, a few minutes west of I-25 and just South of the Air Force Academy. It is within Academy School District 20, one of the highest rated school districts in Colorado. Discovery was developed in the 1970s and consists of approximately 130 acres of wooded land. To preserve the beauty of the area, streets were designed to follow natural contours and miss special trees, clumps of scrub oak, and rock formations. Covenants were written to provide control over design, quality, and environmental compatibility of the homes. As a result of these covenant protections, today Discovery is a beautiful and mature community.
The Covenants are administrated by the Discovery Homeowner’s Association and is self-managed by a Board elected from the full membership of the 332 property owners within the sub-division. All property owners may nominate and vote on themselves or other members to serve on the Board at the Discovery HOA annual meeting. Monthly meetings are open to all members. Minutes from the last annual meeting and the current budget are available on this website.
In addition to nice neighbors, Discovery has an abundance of Colorado’s signature wild life. Mule deer , bear, fox, rabbits, coyotes, raccoons, bobcats, and the occasional mountain lion all call Discovery home. Also, there is a large bird population including owls, magpies, wood peckers, humming birds, and many more, depending upon the season.
We look forward to meeting and getting to knowing you as friends and neighbors.
