Dark Skies: 

Remember to be considerate of others when installing or operating exterior lights.  Crystal Lakes is an active participant in the Dark Skies program.  Flood light shields shall exist and shall not provide illumination above a horizontal level; No dusk to dawn lights (recommend using motion lights with timers); Turn off any outside light that is not being used.  Please take this time to survey your property and make sure all your exterior lighting is in compliance with the Crystal Lakes Architectural Requirements Section 15. Exterior Lighting. In addition, please make sure your lights are not affecting others as stated in the Architectural Requirements Part III - Other Factors Related to Lot Development and Living in Crystal Lakes Section 5.

Broadband Update


Commissioner Kefalas along with Representatives from Larimer County Pamela Marcus-Bause, PMP Project Manager and USDA Sallie Clark State Director reported on the Larimer Broadband: Everywhere is Somewhere Initiative. 

Larimer County understands over 25% of the rural areas are underserved with connectivity and broad band.   Also, rural development is essential for internet.  While Larimer County is not planning to build/operate a broadband utility, there are vital gears in motion to identify possibilities to fill infrastructure and service gaps -and to be ready for those opportunities.  One of the vital parts of this initiative is to identify speeds.  Many coverage maps identify an area as being serviced but in reality many areas are underserved or not served at all.  How to test these speeds for service is a major topic currently in talks.  Stay tuned.
