Colorado law defines a “low-powered scooter” as a self-propelled vehicle with no manual clutch and less than 50cc cylinder capacity if gasoline powered and under 4,476 watts if electric powered. Operators must have a driver’s license (so you must be at least 16 years old), and low-powered scooters must be registered with the state, which requires a valid insurance policy. The registration decal (not a license plate) must be fixed to the frame. Scooters must follow the rules of the road – be sure to stop at stop signs.

Door-to-door solicitation is prohibited in Town, and signs are posted at the entrances to Town. Please be willing to inform the solicitor of our ban and/or to report him/her to the police at 303-795-4711.

Laying a tablecloth is Bow Mar’s traditional way of reserving a picnic table at the beach – but please, do not reserve your dinner table until after 2pm. Let the early morning and lunch crowds use the tables first. Please do not reserve a table on Father’s Day and the 4th of July when all tables are used for garden club events.

trash - beach
Please keep the beach clean by depositing all trash and recyclables in the appropriate containers. Fish waste should go in the trash cans on the fishing dock. During the off season, please take your trash with you because trash pick up is scheduled only from opening day in mid May through Labor Day.

trash and recycling bins
Please put your trash and recycle bins at the road the night before pick-up (usually Tuesday) and remove them promptly. Your neighbors will appreciate your storing them out of sight. See the Main calendar on the Home Page.

trees – clearance 
Homeowners with trees that hang over the roadway are responsible for them. Trees should be trimmed to at least 14 feet up from the road so delivery trucks can pass without hitting branches. Also, please look at your yard from a driver’s perspective – trim vegetation that may interfere with safety.
