you didn’t have an active homeowner’s association?
If you’ve noticed that Woodgate is not cluttered with unused and junk vehicles, broken garage doors, weeds, debris, holes in siding, falling down fences, trash, etc., it’s not by mere coincidence. Your Homeowners Association is responsible for correcting many of these kind of covenant and code violations in Woodgate. Many neighborhoods in Aurora have Protective Covenants but no HOA to enforce them, and it shows. Without an Association, it is up to individual homeowners to take action, which rarely happens because neighbors don’t like to make complaints against neighbors. Can you imagine what Woodgate would look like if it didn’t have an active HOA? Perhaps you moved into Woodgate because of its kept appearance. It is imperative that we maintain Woodgate’s appeal and property values and continue with the Homeowner’s Association*. We can’t do it without your support however.
*The Woodgate Single Family Homeowners Association has authority to enforce covenants for homes built by Wood Bros. Filings 1-4. Richmond built homes and townhomes have mandatory dues and paid management to enforce covenants. The Woodgate Single Family HOA welcomes all Woodgate dues paying members (including Richmond Single Family and Townhomes) to participate in events sponsored and paid for by the Association.
This page contains links to the complete Woodgate Covenants. Keep in mind there are different sets of covenants for different filings in Woodgate.
Woodgate Filings 1,2,3 or 4 (Single Family Homes built by Wood Bros. in the 1980s, Élan and Executive Series). Covenants for all four of these filings are virtually the same.

Before you start to celebrate the 4th of July or the New Year by setting off fireworks, you should be aware the Aurora City Council recently passed a law imposing a mandatory minimum $250 fine on anyone caught with illegal fireworks. The minimum fine could be lowered for juveniles who complete a fire safety class, but only if they have not caused injury to others or property damage. The fine could be as much as $1,000 for fireworks that explode or leave the ground, because those items also violate state law. This past 4th of July, the excessive fireworks not only disturbed many people and pets but also left debris scattered throughout the neighborhood. Any type of firework combined with our current dry warm weather or wood shake roofs is extremely dangerous. Please think twice before getting yourself a fine or worse, causing property damage.
