{tab=Treasurer's Report}

Treasurer’s Report via E-mail: Bank balance is $15,909.48.  There have been nine voluntary donations since the first of the year in the amount of $335.00.   $24.50 was sent to attorney Lenard Rioth for legal fees since the beginning of the year, $10.00 to Cyber Basement for web site fees and $50.00 to Peoples National Bank for safe deposit box rental.  Interest to date is $2.65.

The Treasurer’s Report was accepted following a motion by Fred Lanyon and a second by Frank Chuba.

{tab=Arch Control}

Architectural Control:  AC Chairman Frank Chuba reports no new applications this month.  He did receive e-mails from a Daniel Seatvet requesting information about covenants allowing or restricting modular homes on the Ranch.  Another e-mail was received from bluepicketrealty.com requesting information for a client who wants to build a ranch style home around 1800 to 2000 square feet.  A discussion ensued about the modular home and the consensus was that although the covenants do not specifically state that modular homes are prohibited, they imply that homes on the Ranch should be custom built.  Chairman Frank Chuba will send a letter to Mr. Seatvet explaining the Board’s position.  The motion for this follow-up was unanimous following a motion by Frank Chuba and a second by Michelle Miller.

{tab=Old Business}

Old Business: The annual spring cleanup will be the 4th, 5th, and 6th of June 2016 at the Association Nevins Park from 0800 to 1600 each day.  Michelle Miller made a roster of times for Board members to man the area and will e-mail absent members for their choice of shifts.  There will be three roll-offs for trash and a fourth for slash.  Jim Bergeron will order the roll-offs from Tri Lakes Disposal and Mark Fears will coordinate the chipping process such as where branches will be dumped in proximity to the roll-off and when the actual chipping will take place.

The water storage tank proposed by the Town of Monument is still in limbo and the RRRHOA has not been notified of any pending land sales or possible site for the tank. According to attorney Lenard Rioth, the HOA can do little to stop the tank from being put on the Ranch if that is what Monument decides to do. However, if the HOA decides to dispute the matter, it can be a lengthy and expensive procedure.  Directors Michelle Miller and Beth Lonnquist felt a campaign against the tank being put on Red Rock Ranch should be started and they agreed to spearhead that campaign.  They both felt that informing residents about the issue as they dump during spring cleanup could be one avenue to pursue.  Mark Fears agreed to compose a letter of protest to various officials stating the HOA’s opposition to the tank, but will ask Board members for input before sending.

Michelle Miller gave an extensive update on the visit to attorney Lenard Rioth and said she will follow up on items that have not been followed through by Mr. Rioth at this time, such as suggestions for updating covenants.

Director Beth Lonnquist gave an update on the Courage to Change house on Spruce Road that is changing its name from Courage to Change to Soaring Hope.

Guests Ute Hill and Hans Zimmerman were given time to express their opinions on the water tank.  

{tab=New Business}

New Business: Jim Bergeron reported that tax statements were received from El Paso County for HOA properties at Nevins Park and the school bus stop on Red Rock Ranch Drive.  No taxes are due.

AC Chairman Frank Chuba made a motion that future mailings from the RRRHOA state  the annual voluntary donation from residents is $50.00,  That was seconded by Fred Lanyon and after discussion among members present, it was passed unanimously.


With no further business to discuss, the meeting was unanimously adjourned at 2003 on a motion by Kelly McGuire and a second by Frank Chuba.

The next regularly scheduled meeting will be at 1900 on Monday, 13 June 2016 at the Tri Lakes Cares building, 235 Jefferson Street, Monument, Colorado.

Respectfully submitted,

Jim Bergeron 

Secretary/Recorder, RRRHOA
