A Great Place to Live. Welcome Home.

 

Welcome to Ridgewood

This is the official website of the Ridgewood Homeowners' Association (HOA). Ridgewood is a FIREWISE community, the first in Teller County to develop a Community Wildfire Protection Plan.  We are located north of Woodland Park, Colorado, on State Highway 67, just north of Manitou Lake.

 

TELLER COUNTY STAGE III FIRE BAN

As of 10 July 2018 Teller County remains in a Stage III fire ban.

The ban includes propane barbecues, gas stoves or lanterns, smokers, pellet stoves, natural gas fueled warming fires and electrical stoves. Also banned are fireworks, campfires, barbecuing on charcoal grills, tossing cigarette butts outside and target shooting on public land. Teller County's Stage III fire restrictions bans the following:

Open burning on public and private lands (campfires, fire pits, etc.)

Use of gas and charcoal grills, and gas lanterns

Outdoor smoking

Discharging firearms

Use of explosives including fireworks

Parking vehicles in grassy areas

Use of some internal combustion engines without a spark arrester (chainsaws, lawnmowers, generators, all-terrain vehicles)

Check your owner’s manual for language such as: “Your Polaris vehicle has a spark arrestor that was tested and qualified to be in accordance with the USDA Forest Service Standard 5100-1C. Federal law requires that this spark arrestor be installed and functional when the vehicle is operated on public lands.”

    If you violate fire restrictions of any kind, you can face a Class B misdemeanor, a maximum fine of $5000 for an individual or $10,000 for an organization, or a six-month prison sentence or both.

    Anyone seeing what they believe is a violation can call the Teller County Sheriff’s Office, (719) 687-9652, with detailed information, including a license plate number if the incident involves a vehicle.

    Ridgewood Homeowner Tip to CPW leads to poaching conviction of two Colorado Springs men Posted: Feb 18, 2018 

     

    An anonymous tip by a Ridgewood resident to Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers has led to the arrest and conviction of two Colorado Springs men for multiple crimes.

    CPW received an anonymous tip from a witness in the Ridgewood subdivision, six miles north of Woodland Park. The witness described seeing bloody drag marks across his driveway and alerted CPW. According to CPW, responding officers located a pool of blood, tire tracks, and a bloody, cross-bow arrow near the residence. Upon further investigation, CPW officers located beer bottles, and a pack of cigarettes with a gas station receipt inside.

    The receipt led officers to a Colorado Springs gas station where they observed the men's pickup truck on surveillance video. CPW said that during a search of nearby neighborhoods, officers were able to locate the unique pickup truck at a residence. After obtaining a warrant for the home, CPW officers located parts of the poached deer inside the garage and house.
