Southern Gables is an established neighborhood located in south Lakewood, Colorado. Our boundary on the north is Jewell Avenue, south – Morrison Road, west – Garrison and east – Wadsworth Boulevard.
Our association was formed in 1973, when a car dealership (now located at Evans and Wadsworth) wanted to purchase land in the neighborhood. The residents felt that if they were organized, they could better negotiate with the dealership to ensure a good working relationship. It all worked out, the car dealership has indeed been a good neighbor, and the association has thrived through all these years.
Southern Gables Neighborhood Association is not what often comes to mind when you think of an HOA. We neither establish nor enforce covenants. Membership is voluntary but encouraged, with annual dues of $20.00 payable in May. You can pay your dues by check or online. If you would like to make a donation to support the association, we welcome that too. We are a registered Colorado nonprofit association. If you are interested in organizational detail, you can read the Association Bylaws here. (And if you’re headed that way, you can contact us to see about serving on the Board.)
We are proud of the three schools that serve our neighborhood. Green Gables Elementary School is located in the heart of our neighborhood with Carmody Middle School just to the west. We are also very proud of Bear Creek High School, off Kipling Parkway at Dartmouth.
This website serves two purposes. First, we are here to serve the residents of Southern Gables and the adjacent Valley View subdivision. Second, we want to tell visitors about the neighborhood. You will find copies of our newsletters on this site as well as information about events happening in our community.
In addition to this website, residents can connect with their Southern Gables neighbors through the NEXTDOOR network. NEXTDOOR.COM is an online network created for neighbors to share community events, items for sale/free, crime and safety concerns, and ideas on improving our community. NEXTDOOR welcomes new neighbors and helps the neighbors to get to know each other better.
