Short Term Rentals (STR)
Like much of Summit County, there are a large number of homes in Silver Shekel that are rented on a short term basis. If you you are renting your home, click here for information from the county about their very specific regulations that are to be followed.
 
For neighbors that may be impacted by situations at one of the STR properties, the County has established a hotline at 970-368-2044. Call them if you need help resolving a problem.
 
Recreational Fire Permits Are Required
Permits from Red, White and Blue Fire Department are required for fires in residential fire pits and wood burning cooking devices.
 
Click on this link to apply for a permit. This is the platform to create your individual profile and then apply for a permit. Once you have applied RWB Fire will perform an inspection prior to approval. The process usually takes several days and will occur Mondays thru Fridays. Once approved, the permit is valid for two years. Currently, there is no cost associated with these permits.

Please Clean Up After Your Pets
Please keep our mountain environment clean and always pick up after your dogs.
 
Most of our residents are very good about doing this anyway, but there are a few that never pick up after their dogs. Also, please don’t leave your poop bag on the side of the road. Dispose of it properly.

Do not let your pets run off leash to poop on your neighbor’s property. Not only is that being an inconsiderate pet owner, but it may be a violation of Summit County’s leash laws. The County requires all off-leash pets to be under control and within 10 feet of a person competent to control and restrain the pet. Click here for more information.

Thank you for you cooperation.
 
Welcome to the Silver Shekel Owners Association website!
 
We hope you will visit here often to check for information and updates about your neighborhood from the Silver Shekel Owners Association. Silver Shekel is located north of Breckenridge, Colorado, on the east side of Colorado Highway 9. The entrance to the neighborhood is at the Fairview Blvd. traffic circle three miles north of town.
 
The Member pages of the site require a user ID and password. Silver Shekel residents can access the information by clicking on the Register link at the top of this page. This is also a quick way to add your email address to our database so that you can receive the important neighborhood-related messages that the Board sends from time to time.
 
Attention Realtors and Title Companies
Association documents including covenants, bylaws, minutes and financial statements are available in the Members section of this website. To obtain temporary access to this information, click the Register link at the top of this page. Please do not request that we email this information. 
 
Requesting a Mailbox?
The Association maintains a bank of mailboxes near the entrance on Fairview Ave.  Mailboxes are provided to members only, on a space available basis. We require a one time deposit of $120 via a check payable to Silver Shekel Owners' Association. The mailbox fee is refundable and the mailbox is transferable to a future owner and member. To request a mailbox please send an email to Ken Mace.
 
Construction Plans
Silver Shekel Protective Covenants require SSOA approval of construction plans. We rely on Summit County for structural review and compliance with all the building codes. Association review is primarily for compatibility with the neighborhood (color, exterior materials, etc.) and the effect of the improvements on neighboring lots. See the Covenants for your Filing for details. 
 
Building plans should be submitted to the HOA in electronic form at silvershekelHOA@gmail.com.

Past-due Accounts
Posted on Oct 4th, 2020
The amount of money owed to the Association continues to grow with several owners owing many years of member dues. Our dues are very modest, $30 per year, and in fairness to the majority of owners that pay faithfully each year, the SSOA Board of Directors is making an important change in our past due receivables policy:
      
Per the Silver Shekel Responsible Governance Policies, we will begin charging interest on unpaid balances beginning Jan 1, 2021. However, the SSOA Board made the decision to give all owners the opportunity to pay their outstanding HOA balances without incurring interest charges if paid in full by December 31, 2020.
 
Beginning January 1, 2021, interest will accrue at the rate of twenty-one percent (21%) per year on all unpaid balances.
 
Owners with outstanding balances will be receiving a past due statement during October. Please take this opportunity to avoid paying interest and bring your account up to date before December 31, 2020.
 
Shekel Lane Re-paving
Posted on Oct 3rd, 2020
The contractor for the Shekel Lane repaving project, Columbine Hills, is expecting to start work the week of October 12. You should not have problems accessing your homes except during the time that actual work (excavating, paving, etc.) is being done at your property. 
 
There are details about the project in the County's bid document.
 
Your patience during the process will be much appreciated. By the end of the month we’ll have a new, smooth street!
 
Summer Road
Posted on Aug 1st, 2018
We have great news about the Summer Road! After three years of saving, we’ve been able to repair and upgrade the Summer Road. The work has been completed and consisted of grading and filling the huge bumps and holes, adding road base and capping with recycled asphalt. Drainage and culverts are also being improved. With the upgrades, we expect that doing yearly maintenance will be less involved, and cheaper. 
 
Recycled asphalt is not as durable as new asphalt and can easily be damaged by aggressive driving, so please “tread lightly” to extend the life of the road.
 
We need the Summer Road as a secondary exit for emergency situations, and these repairs will make the road usable for the purpose. The County does not maintain the road and If you use the road, please be aware that you do so at your own risk.
