The new residents at 18509 Pike View Way have talked with AC Frank Chuba via telephone.  They are currently living in California and had questions about erecting solar panels at their new residence which Mr. Chuba answered.  They also stated they did not know of RRRHOA covenants and were given the website to obtain them.

Old Business: None

{tab=New Business}

New Business: President Mark Fears has researched several businesses for prices and availability of roll-offs and chippers for the annual spring cleanup.  None offered weekend service that the Association would like to have in the event all roll-offs are filled by Saturday.  Treasurer David Weber suggested that having the cleanup on Saturday, Sunday and Monday might be a solution instead of the usual Friday, Saturday and Sunday that were held in past years.  President Fears said he would be willing to park his motor home and spend the nights at the Park over the cleanup weekend to prevent illegal dumping that has been a problem in the past.

Jim Bergeron stated that he received a telephone call on Thursday, 07 January from Dave Miller, developer of Forest View Estates that abut Red Rock Ranch.  Col. Miller said he had received some queries from his residents about the Courage to Change house on Spruce Road and their concerns about being so close to an alcohol rehabilitation facility. Col. Miller was informed of the status of the facility as of that date, 07 January 2016.

{tab=Guest Comments}

Guests Comments: President Fears asked if the guests had any comments and all responded with a yes.  As a group, they said they wanted to discuss the Courage to Change facility on Spruce Road.  Each one spoke about findings they found on the internet and checked open legal records plus individual experiences around the neighborhood surrounding the house.  Dr. Judith Miller submitted a letter of intent to apply for a license to be able to take in up to 12 clients many weeks ago and now it appears that she will actually submit within a week or two.  With the current five clients in a sober home, she does not require a license as long as there is no treatment provided, but apparently her web site lists the facility as a treatment center.  The guests spoke of clients hiding behind trees on their properties, littering and trespassing on private property, a young woman from the facility sitting in the middle of Spruce Road in an apparent intoxicated state, told of a sex offender committing suicide from an overdose, and strangers coming to their doors late at night asking for directions to Courage to Change.


The consensus of the group is that they are especially exasperated with the inaction on the part of the planning/zoning commission that refuses to answer their letters and e-mails.  The group is asking for help and backing from the HOA in this matter.


President Fears again explained that he has had meetings with Dr. Miller, Representative Terry Carver and attorney Lenard Rioth are in communication with each other, and that the Board would offer the following:


  1. Wait and see the County response to the application from Dr. Miller for a license.
  2. The Board will be more proactive and request a meeting with the County Commissioners.
  3. The Board will compose a letter with input from all members to be sent to Mr. Mark Gephart of the zoning/planning board with copies to the County Commissioners.



With no further business to discuss, the meeting was unanimously adjourned at 2029 on a motion by David Weber and a second by Frank Chuba.


The next regularly scheduled meeting will be at 1900 on Monday, 08 February 2016 at the Tri Lakes Cares building, 235 Jefferson Street, Monument, Colorado.

Respectfully submitted,

Jim Bergeron 

Secretary/Recorder, RRRHOA
