Presiding: David Weber

Present: Jim Bergeron, Jim Zalmanek, David Weber, Frank Chuba, Bill Griffith

Guests:  James Krehbiel, Tammy Krehbiel

Meeting called to order at 1900.

The minutes of the 12 September 2016 meeting were read and approved unanimously after a motion by Jim Zalmanek and a second by Bill Griffith.

{tab=Special Item}

As per Association policy, James and Tammy Krehbiel were allowed to present plans for a proposed residence at 3550 Mesa Verde Road prior to the beginning of regular business.  Tentative plans call for a 4,660 square foot home with stucco siding and a metal roof.  A building permit has yet to be obtained. The plan is for the Krehbiel’s to formulate a final architectural drawing with specifics on colors of siding and roof and then submit to Architectural Control Chairman Frank Chuba.  They offered to pay the required fee, but were told that would be collected after the plans are approved.  If they are ready to proceed with construction before the next scheduled meeting, it was agreed plans can be approved by Board members via e-mail.

{tab=Treasurer's Report}

Treasurer’s Report: Treasurer David Weberreports there have been no new residents contributing voluntary dues since last month. The sole income for the month is bank interest in the amount of 0.62 cents.  The only expense for the month was $282.21 for Nevins Park fence material.  Bank balance stands at $13,935.53.

Treasurer’s report was unanimously approved following a motion by Frank Chuba and a second by Bill Griffith.

{tab=Arch Control}

Architectural Control:  AC Chairman Frank Chuba reports no new requests other than the above mentioned request from James and Tammy Krehbiel.

{tab=Old Business}

Old Business: Treasurer David Weber reported that there has been no response from the attorney regarding letters sent about Courage to Change/Soaring Hope.  It has been four weeks and a response was promised, but is not forthcoming despite calls from David Weber and President Beth Lonnquist.  David Weber said he will contact the law office again on Tuesday, 11 October 2016.

The El Paso County Commissioner’s meeting is still scheduled for Tuesday, 18 October 2016 as far as anyone knows, but there has been scant information about the meeting.  David Weber will send an e-mail to residents informing them of the meeting and urging them to attend if possible.  Board member Jim Zalmanek said he plans on attending and opinions on the Courage to Change home can be offered.

David Weber thanked the Board members who worked on repairing the falling down fence at the north end of the tennis court in Nevins Park.  Director Bill Griffith feels the northwest corner needs more fill dirt, but that can be delayed until spring due to budget considerations.

David Weber mentioned that the grass around the Association school bus stop has been mowed and he offered thanks, but no one knows who did the mowing.

{tab=New Business}

New Business: The proposed water tank that the town of Monument would like to erect in this area is probably going to be at 744 Forest View Way that is not in Red Rock Ranch, but is in Forest View Estates.  President Beth Lonnquist was informed of the location during the last NEPCO meeting she attended although the Town has yet to make an official announcement that anyone on the Board knows of.  Although the proposed tank is not on Red Rock Ranch, it was decided that the Board go on record as opposing it on aesthetic grounds.

David Weber floated the idea of moving the meeting place back to the Tri Lakes Fire Station on Highway 105 since Jim Bergeron, who has a key and code to alarm Tri Lakes Cares may be leaving because of health issues.  Jim responded that the president can be given a key and a code from Director Haley Chapin and added that if firemen are called out at meeting time, the building is locked and there would be no way to enter it. For the time being, meetings will continue to be held at Tri Lakes Cares.


With no further business to discuss, the meeting was unanimously adjourned at 1937 on a motion by Frank Chuba and a second by Jim Zalmanek.

The next regularly scheduled meeting will be at 1900 on Monday, 14 November 2016 at the Tri Lakes Cares building, 235 Jefferson Street, Monument, Colorado.

Respectfully submitted,

Jim Bergeron
