Latest Updates!

Maintenance Fee Residents:

If your residence is in a Maintenance Fee Area (MFA) you receive and pay for services that the remainder of the Solterra community are not eligible to receive.  These services (depending on which area you live) include snow removal, landscape maintenance, and gate repair. 

Fossil Ridge Metro District (FRMD) is hosting a workshop via Zoom during the week of May 31, 2020 to discuss fees.  However, your response on a date that works best is needed. Please CLICK HERE for more information and the links regarding the call. 

Pool Opening Delayed

Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions, we are unable to open the pool as scheduled on May 23rd.   It is still uncertain when this opening will occur.  When we are able to open the pool for guests, appropriate rules and restrictions will be necessary to maintain a safe environment for pool users and our Solterra community.  Those guidelines will be provided via Solterra-Connect and notices at the Retreat.

Thank you, The Retreat Staff

Condition of Our Community Pine Trees

As you have undoubtedly noticed, a number of our pines trees appear to be dried out, discolored or diseased. This is the result of drastic temperature fluctuations experienced last fall and doesn’t necessarily mean that all these trees are dying or will need to be replaced. Our landscaping contractor, Schultz Industries, is taking recommended measures to revitalize these trees, as detailed in the attached information, and only time will tell how many we can save.

News and Announcements

Solterra Community

The pool at the Retreat is set to open May 23, 2020. Due to the current health pandemic, dates may change or restrictions may be implemented to ensure the health and safety of pool users.


The waiver process for using the pool has changed!

In the past, a new pool waiver was required each year to get your key card turned on.  However, moving forward the previously signed waiver will be used if, and only if there have been no changes in your status at home.  If no information regarding minors changed, if no information regarding authorized users changed, etc.  If all information remains the same, your previously completed pool waiver is valid moving forward.   Your current key card will be activated prior to the pool opening.

If there has been changes (ages of minors-to allow unsupervised pool access, additional pool users in the household, or key access for au-pairs etc.) a new waiver will need to be filed with the Retreat staff.  It is the responsibility of each homeowner to inform the Retreat Staff of changes and complete an updated form.  Should it be found that information was not updated, the Retreat Staff has the ability to restrict pool use.

Lastly, if you are a new resident or a first-time pool user, a waiver will need to be filed with the Retreat staff to gain access to the pool.

If there are any questions you can either call the Retreat at 303-980-5450 or email
