|Governing Documents of the HPA
Everything you need to know...
Filing 1: Highland Park has been developed in Phases or Filings. Filing 1, consisting of Lots 1-52, inclusive,
and Tract A (lying North of the Briargate Parkway right-of-way), and lies west of Cottonwood Creek. Tract A is
a small parcel that was separated from the rest of the property by the County-mandated dedication of the
Briargate Parkway road right-of-way. It is now owned by the HPA and could be a future site for an
augmentation well (if needed).
Filing 1-A: After recording the Filing 1 plat, an engineering change was made which required replatting the
N-S drainage area which runs from Briargate Parkway south through Filing 1. Large portions of the drainage
were excavated, and rock and landscaping fabric were installed prior to final grading and reseeding to ensure
stabilization of the drainageway. This change affected Lots 4, 5, 21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 33, 34, 39, 40, 45, and 46.
While the boundaries of each lot remained unchanged, the location of the large drainage easement was
altered slightly on each affected lot. This replat is called Highland Park Filing 1A.
Filing 1B, is simply a replat of Lots 16 and 17 in Filing 1. This replat adjusted the lot line between the two lots
to satisfy the County with regard to the minimum front building setback.
Filing 2: In 2003, the plat for Filing 2 was recorded. Filing two consists of Lots 53-119, inclusive, and Tracts B,
C and D. Lots 53-59 are located West of Cottonwood Creek, and the rest are East of the creek. Tracts B and C
are now owned by the HPA. Tract C runs from the Forestgate bridge north to the easement for a future
Briargate Parkway - about where the dam is located and includes our pond. Tract B includes Cottonwood
Creek and a narrow area on either side (south of the Forestgate bridge). Tract D is still owned by the
developer Little London LLC.
Filing 3: The developer, Little London, LLC. , hoped to record and begin marketing Filing 3 in 2007. Water
issues and some platting issues have delayed its development. If it is to be a Filing 3 for Highland Park, it will
require annexation and approval from the HPA homeowners in Filing 1 an 2 for a covenant amendment. It's
access will be via the north end of Lochwinnoch Ln. and Poco Rd. which connects to Vollmer.
Tracts B and C are the Cottonwood Creek open space, which are owned by the HPA. El Paso County will
have a public trail easement through these Tracts to eventually connect their envisioned Cottonwood Creek
regional trail to the County-wide Santa Fe Trail system.
Tract D is reserved as possible future road right-of-way for Research Parkway. If not so used, it will be
replatted as a residential lot and sold as such. The Research Parkway alignment has not been finalized by the
County, so there is no way of knowing with certainty whether or not Tract D will be affected.
Misc: The portion of Briargate Parkway constructed from Black Forest Rd. east gives the subdivision to the
north, Eagle Wing Estates, a second access to Black Forest Rd.
The owner/developer of the land that could be designated HPA Filing 3 (or a different subdivision) has said in
the past that they have no plans to build any of Briargate Parkway, and will fight any request to do so. 60-120
feet of right of way for the road has or will be granted to the County in each filing, so that if and when the
County deems it necessary, the road can be built. Currently, the County would have to acquire right of way
from multiple other property owners in order to get the full 120 feet of right of way it desires. There are large
parcels of undeveloped land to the east of Highland Park (east of the future Filing 3) that the County would
have to get right of way from in order to build a road that goes anywhere. If it does not go anywhere to the
east of Highland Park, there is no reason to build it in Highland Park.
