Bad idea on fences

Re: “HRCA proposes universal fence color”

I was very disappointed to read that the HRCA Architectural Committee wants to require all fences in Highlands Ranch be painted the same drab brown color.

They seem to think this will enhance the look of the neighborhoods, when in fact it will do quite the opposite. Fences should be stained or painted to complement the house of the same property.

The RIGs already limit the choices of colors and stains. Requiring all fences to be the same color will only make the neighborhoods look dull while reinforcing a Stepford mentality. There are limits to uniformity and some variation in color and look is refreshing.

In this community, with its conservative outlook that values limited government, this fence color mandate is in my opinion a gross overreach of the Architectural Committee. I have to ask what is next?

Will the members of the Architectural Committee be showing up at my front door demanding that I paint my house the color they have picked?

I urge all residents of Highlands Ranch to provide feedback at https://hrcaonline.org/property-owners/covenants-improvements/fence-color-proposal-faqs and tell the Architectural Committee to kill this proposal.
