{tab=Old Business}

Old Business: Treasurer David Weber reported that the cost per resident who dumped and chipped during the annual spring Ranch-wide cleanup was $79.00.

{tab=New Business}

New Business: The annual spring cleanup was discussed and all felt that Dan Elders of Angry Squirrel did an excellent job chipping wood and then cleaning the surrounding area, but his cost of business was high at $3,100.00.  The men who did it the last time charged just over $800.00, but the chipping product was more coarse and it was piled on the ground rather than blowing it into roll-offs.  The Board felt it would be better to ask for bids the next time chipping is accomplished.

President Mark Fears passed a letter to members present that he will send to Monument Town Manager Chris Lowe.  The letter is a note thanking Mr. Lowe for attending the 14 March 2016 Board meeting concerning his comments and explanation about a proposed water tank for the Town of Monument.

Treasurer David Weber reported that attorney Lenard Rioth has sent the letters to four individuals as requested by the Board members who met with Mr. Rioth concerning the Courage to Change business on Red Rock Ranch.

Director Michelle Miller spoke of revising the Ranch covenants as suggested by attorney Lenard Rioth.

Resident Tom Guenther said a “stranger” at his residence asked Mrs. Guenther if she could tell him where their property lines were.  When Mrs. Guenther went to find Mr. Guenther, the “stranger” disappeared.  Since the Guenther residence abuts the property line of Courage to Change. Mr. Guenther thought the incident was odd and wanted the Board to be aware.

Director Beth Lonnquist wrote a letter on behalf of the Board to Mark Gebhart of El Paso County Development Services concerning Soaring Hope/Courage to Change. (Attached)

Also attached is a summary written by Director Lonnquist regarding Soaring Hope/Courage to Change.

President Mark Fears stated that he will be leaving the RRRHOA Board after the July meeting since he is relocating and will no longer be in Colorado. He asked that Board members consider someone to replace him by the next meeting.

Treasurer David Weber, on behalf of the Board, offers a speedy recovery for ailing Board member Kelly McGuire.


With no further business to discuss, and with a sudden electrical blackout, the meeting was unanimously adjourned at 2020 on a motion by David Weber and a second by Jim Zalmanek.

The next regularly scheduled meeting will be at 1900 on Monday, 11 July 2016 at the Tri Lakes Cares building, 235 Jefferson Street, Monument, Colorado.
