Does anyone know anything about the Forest Meadows community? More specifically, how about Aspen View Homes? Hubbs and I are looking to build in this area by this builder. I can't find anything about either one of them.

Thank you in advance.

I found a website for their HOA -- Forest Meadows Homeowners Association - Managed by Diversified Property Management HOA, Colorado Springs. You can read minutes of past meetings etc. I'm familiar with the area. It's about five miles down the road from me. Not a lot of trees, close to Colorado Springs, but not too close. I can't tell if they are in the city limits of Colorado Springs or not, so I'm not sure where they get their water. For this area, it's wise to find out. Also, this is a covenant protected community. Be sure to read them to see if you agree with them. Jim Morley, the president of the HOA, is the developer of the community.

Thank you so much for your help! I truly appreciate it!

Hi BlitzyBug,
Hope this reply is not too late. I recently moved into this community in June 2011. Forest Meadows is located off Vollmer and Black Forest Rd near Woodmen. From what I hear, the community was started in 2006 right when the housing bubble burst which caused the contruction of homes to nearly stop at Forest Meadows. Currently, builders in the area are Aspen View, St. Aubyn, Legendary and Journey. Todays Homes, who I bought my home from went bankrupt so they are no longer building in the Springs. I would highly recommend looking into St. Aubyn Homes. They seem to have better model designs and tons of upgrade options. Since moving into the area, it seems like there has been a mini boom in building. Tons of homes have gone up everywhere. There is still some missing sidewalks and most of the community is still not landscaped due to the shortage in funds and because the developer, Jim Morley has filed for bankruptcy as well. I like the area. It's outside Colorado Springs city limits but uses City Utilities for everything. HOA fees are $21.50 monthly but includes trash service. The only thing that sucks is that Domino's and Pizza Hut both do not deliver to the area. lol. Other than that, if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle this would be a great alternative to the more expensive Banning Lewis or Wolf Ranch.

Scabera, we are looking at that neighborhood, too. Are there plans to finish the landscaping and such? Will the bankruptcy leave things in limbo?
