The Greens is a small luxury “sub-association” within the gated community of Kissing Camels Estates in northwest Colorado Springs. There are 37 home lots in The Greens. As of summer 2020, those lots include 31 homes and five lots that are for sale and available for development.
Homes in The Greens are all located on either Hill Circle or Reserve Point and surround part of the Kissing Camels Golf Club at Garden of the Gods Resort and Club. The homes and lots have exceptional views of the Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak and the city of Colorado Springs.
Although most residents are now full time, The Greens originally was developed as a vacation community. Its developers described the environment as “living in a park” where the POA owns almost all land that is not actually under the homes’ footprints. Individual homeowners may, with permission, develop some landscaping but the POA provides all necessary lawn care and external building maintenance.
A board selected by the property owners in The Greens makes all administrative decisions. This board and the committees who assist it are made up entirely of The Greens property owners and none receive any payment or reimbursement for their service. Currently the board members are: Art Hagan, Tim McMahon, Mike Parkinson, Rex Peteet and Randy Reynolds. All are residents in The Greens.
The Greens provides greater services than most Homeowners Associations. The grounds and landscaping in The Greens are extensive and most exterior home maintenance and landscape maintenance is provided by the Association. In exchange for dues in The Greens, the Association provides:
Lawn mowing, edging, watering, fertilizing and aerating
Irrigation and maintenance of the irrigation system
Seasonal plant removal and hedge trimming
Plant or turf replacement and replenishment as selected by the Landscape Committee
Periodic mulching and mulch maintenance
Semiannual roof inspection and maintenance
