I am posting this specifically to the Localism.com sight under the area of Highlands Ranch, Wildcat Ridge.
I feel that it is a bit confusing to list Wildcat Ridge under Highlands Ranch, as it is not a part of Highlands Ranch.
If you were just to look at a map, it may appear to be - but that is not the case. Wildcat Ridge is in fact not a part of Highlands Ranch and is instead considered Littleton, CO as far as a mailing address goes. On this same site, Localism.com - you will find Wildcat Ridge also listed in its proper home of Littleton, CO for mailing addresses purposes. Some use the Lone Tree name as well - but it seems most go with Littleton. I have even posted about this before - Wildcat Ridge - Setting the Record Straight For Home Buyers
I know, its tricky.
Over the years I have run into several folks that had thought originally that Wildcat Ridge was in fact part of Highlands Ranch - one couple even thought that at the closing table (NOT my buyers) and wanted to know how to get their Highlands Ranch Rec Center ID cards. Boy were they in for a surprise.
Wildcat Ridge is in unincorporated Douglas County. It is also sometimes referred to as Intravest.
Wildcat Ridge does not belong to the HOA of Highlands Ranch.
WildCat Ridge homeowners do not pay HOA fees to HRCA (Highlands Ranch) and they do not get free access to the HRCA Recreation Centers. WildCat Ridge residents can register for some HRCA activities if guests fees are available, but you should talk to the HRCA about this before making assumptions.
Wildcat Ridge homeowners do have their own HOA. Wildcat Ridge residents have access to the South Suburban Rec Centers and facilities (SSPRD) and in-resident fees do apply.
Wildcat Ridge is in Douglas County like Highlands Ranch, and children of Wildcat Ridge do of course attend Douglas County Schools.
Another area that shares similar confusion is Province Center - again - not in Highlands Ranch.
Hope that clears that up a bit.
