{tab=Old Business}

Old Business: Mark Fears stated that he is in the process of obtaining lumber to replace the picnic table bench seats at the Association Park.

Mark Fears stated that he met with the owner of the residence at 3640 Range View Road who reportedly had chickens on his property.  No chickens were seen and the resident was informed of covenants prohibiting livestock on the Ranch, in addition to the danger of mountain lions being attracted to an easy meal.

There is nothing new to report on Courage to Change.  It is noted that Dr. Judith Miller, CEO of Courage to Change, has been invited to Board meetings, but has yet to attend.

{tab=New Business}

New Business:  President Emeritus Kelly McGuire received a letter from residents Matt and Eva Hornung at 4885 Sandstone Drive concerning a neighbor at 4845 Abo Lane and an issue about a driveway and a chicken wire fence on his property.  They are concerned about setbacks and whether the driveway is considered a “structure” as addressed in the covenants.  Architectural Control Chairman Frank Chuba will arrange a meeting with the two parties involved to reach an amicable conclusion.

David Weber reported that he received an e-mail from resident Julie Troudt, 18255 Stoneview Road, concerning trash strewn at her neighbor’s residence.  Mr. Weber did go to the residence in question and did not see any trash on the property and sent an e-mail to Mrs. Troudt with that information.  He did ask if he had checked the correct address, but received no reply to his follow up. Case closed.

Jim Bergeron reported that he received an e-mail from attorney Lenard Rioth stating that he will represent the Board for up to three hours, as requested, during a hearing on the Courage to Change proposal to increase the client population from five up to 12.

Jim Bergeron
