- Positions Available
  • What: The Highlands Ranch Community Association must review all commercial projects and improvements in Highlands Ranch. The HRCA makes project decisions based on the best interest of the Highlands Ranch community considering appearance, traffic impact, and the impact on neighboring properties. There are two commercial committees for this purpose:
    HRCA Development Review Committee (DRC) is the review authority for commercial construction projects (i.e., those requiring a Site Improvement Plan through Douglas County). Generally, commercial projects will need HRCA DRC review before Douglas County will issue permits. Project applicants are required to present their project to the committee.
    HRCA Commercial Review Committee (CRC) is the approval authority for smaller commercial projects (i.e., revisions or modifications to SIPs, all commercial signage, improvements to the exterior of commercial property, including paint, awnings, etc.). The CRC meets electronically, reviewing projects as they are submitted.
    Note: Have questions or need assistance determining to which committee to submit your project? Contact the HRCA Commercial Coordinator at 303-471-8821.
