What is the role of the Primary Sponsor for applicants to Crestmoor Community Association?
The primary sponsor is responsible for gathering all application materials, ensuring the documents are accurate, and filling out the online application found on the Crestmoor Website. Primary sponsors will also attend the New Member Gathering and assist the new Member with orientation to CCA.
How long is the waiting list?
It is impossible to determine the amount of time an Applicant will remain on the waiting list before being offered membership. Applicants or sponsors can obtain more information about placement and priority categories of the waiting list by contacting the CCA Membership Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no guarantee that an Applicant and his/her family will be offered membership the first year they apply, regardless of their priority category.
Why is it taking so long for Greater Metro Denver applicants to get in?
Our Bylaws cap the CCA membership at 350 families. We admit new Members on a one out/one in basis as former Members either resign or select senior status. On average, approximately 10-15 families leave Crestmoor Community Association or convert their membership to senior status each year. Applicants in the preference categories (Reinstatements, Children of Members, Crestmoor Filings I & II) are admitted first, and any remaining openings are then filled by Greater Metro Denver Applicants. Because of the constant movement of the preference categories, applicants in the Greater Metro Denver section of the waiting list will frequently move up and down.
How do I know if I live in Crestmoor Filings I or II?
Applicants should review the title to their home to be sure "Crestmoor Filing I or II" is in the legal description. You may also check the legal description of your property through the Denver Assessor’s office.
How do I submit proof of ownership and residency if I am seeking preference as a resident of Crestmoor Filings I and II?
Included with their application, Crestmoor Filing I and II Applicants must submit the page they receive from their closing documents when you purchased your home that demonstrates Filing I or II status in the legal description of the property. This document is generally called the Warranty Deed. In order to be eligible to apply, you must both own and reside in your home when you apply and when membership is offered to you. If you purchased your home and are remodeling it, you are not eligible to apply until your home is complete and you are residing in it full time as your primary residence. To prove residency, you must submit a bill showing utility service at your current address. Please be advised that we check all applications to confirm both ownership and residency. If inaccurate information is provided, your application will be denied, and you may be barred from applying to CCA in the future.
Do you have to own your home to join Crestmoor?
Applicants seeking preference as residents of Crestmoor Filings I or II must submit proof that they own and reside in their homes at the time of application and at the time of their membership offer. Applicants from Greater Metro Denver may rent or own.
FAQ’s for Members:
My neighbor, whom I just met, asked me to sponsor them. What do I do?
Our rules require that all sponsors know someone personally for at least one year and be able to personally vouch for the applicant’s suitability to join CCA, including willingness to volunteer and fulfill financial responsibilities. If you have just met someone in passing or do not know them personally, you are obliged to turn down sponsorship requests.
We just joined CCA. Can we serve as sponsors?
No. You are required to be a Member of CCA for a minimum of one year to sponsor applicants.
How many people may I sponsor each year?
A member in good standing may serve as a primary sponsor for one applicant; and/or as a secondary sponsor for up to two applicants in any given membership year (November 1-October 31).
What happens to our membership if we have gotten a divorce?
Only one adult of a divorced couple may continue as a CCA Member. It is the responsibility of the divorced Members to decide which spouse will retain the CCA membership and inform CCA of the status of each adult as of March 1 each year on the Annual Member Renewal Form.
The Divorced Non-Member has three options:
1) resign permanently from CCA; or
2) request a status-change to become a Divorced non-Member, which will allow you to pay only annual dues and continue to use the club as a non-voting Member for a grace period of up to two years following the change in membership status due to the divorce; or
3) apply for reinstatement as a new Member and pay the full initiation and annual dues then in force, within five years of the resignation by divorce.
When are Members eligible for senior status?
Members in good standing, who have been Members for 25 years, may apply for senior status. Members with senior status pay half the annual dues.
We have senior status. Are our children and grandchildren part of our membership?
No. According to CCA’s Bylaws, Senior Membership is limited to only the adult heads of household. Children and Grandchildren of Members with senior status are welcome as guests and guest rules and fees apply. They may not participate on teams. They may participate in lessons if there is space available at which point they are still considered guests.
