Clover Creek, Neighborhood Groups
Homes at Clover Creek were built between 1997 and 1999, on farmland formerly owned by the Lefever family. They range in size from about 1,200 sq. ft. to over 3,000 sq. ft., all with basements and 2- or 3-car garages. Amenities include a large swimming pool, a wading pool for younger children, several basketball hoops, and two small playgrounds. We have approximately 17 acres of attractively landscaped common-areas, with walking paths throughout. Our location, a mile north of the Diagonal Highway (Hwy 119), gives us easy access to Boulder, and to the many restaurants and stores in south Longmont.
Neighborhood Grant Projects
Clover Creek has received several Neighborhood Improvement Grants, since joining the NGLA in 2003. In 2004, we planted twenty-seven trees along Airport Road, and created a colorful xeriscape garden at the corner of Clover Basin Drive. In 2005, we planted trees along the ditch on Pike Road, west of Fordham Street. In 2006, our project was creating a flower bed at the Larkspur Drive entrance, and relandscaping islands to save water and beautify the neighborhood. Our 2007 grant helped buy equipment for a swim team.
Clover Creek is a covenant-controlled community, with an active homeowners association and an elected Board of Directors. A management company helps conduct the association's business, and a maintenance company takes care of the common areas. Volunteer homeowners participate as members of the Landscape Committee, the Design Review Committee, the Pool Committee, and the Special Events Committee.
For the past several years, we have held a big community party on a Saturday during the summer, where we have lots of good food, as well as, activities for the children. It is an opportunity for people to gather (under shade-canopies) and socialize. The party continues into the evening with Family Night at the Pool.
In order to ensure that our young trees survive, we started the “Adopt-a-Tree” program, where homeowners volunteer to take care of new trees planted in the common-areas near their homes. The water that the homeowners provide helps the young trees make it through the winter.
Clover Creek is a quiet neighborhood comprised of 535 single-family homes, located in southwest Longmont. Airport Road is to the west, Clover Basin Drive to the north, the Diagonal Tech Center to the east, and the Kanemoto farm to the south.
