The Highlands Ranch Park & Recreation Foundation recently welcomed Highlands Ranch residents Renee Anderson and Sharyn Landis to its Board of Trustees. The foundation works in partnership with the Highlands Ranch Metro District to support local parks, recreation and open space projects and programs. Board trustees share a common desire to help maintain the exceptional quality of life in Highlands Ranch.

Renee has lived in Highlands Ranch for 22 years. There are many things she enjoys about Highlands Ranch including the parks and trails, activities, and the well-kept common areas throughout the district. Renee enjoys working towards making good things even better and she says serving on the board provides opportunities to do just that.

Sharyn is also a long-time resident of the community having lived in Highlands Ranch for 19 years. She enjoys living in Highlands Ranch because of the feeling of community it evokes, the covenants that keep neighborhoods looking so lovely, and the many amenities residents are privileged to enjoy. Sharyn believes volunteering in one’s community is essential. She says the foundation continues to be an essential pillar in the continued development of Highlands Ranch and she wants to carry on the great works her predecessors have attained in helping to fund important community park and recreation programs.

In addition to Renee and Sharyn, foundation board trustees include Roy Mapp, president, Bob Epstein, vice president, Lucy Dieterich, secretary, and Gary Herbella. The foundation board continues to seek additional community-minded individuals interested in volunteering on its board. The foundation is looking for board members with time and energy for active participation who will help build a high performing board and develop the organization. Candidates should be able to devote 8 - 10 hours a month to the foundation.

Individuals interested in serving on the foundation’s board should contact Carrie Ward at or 720-240-5950.
