HOA accused of excessive accommodations for senior home

November 16, 2015
Frustrated Highlands Ranch residents say their homeowners association is bending the rules too far to accommodate a senior citizen home.
     The new owner of the house on Forrest Drive, near Cougar Run Elementary School, is converting it from a three-bedroom house to a group home for eight senior citizens with Alzheimer's or other mental disorders.
     Neighbors say the owner is violating Highlands Ranch Community Association covenants - by building bedrooms in the garage, adding unapproved windows, and putting a flashing commercial fire alarm outside. They are also concerned about how much traffic and garbage the home will produce.
