The meeting was called to order by President Beth Lonnquist at 1901.

The minutes of the 10 October 2016 meeting were read and unanimously approved following a motion by Fred Lanyon and a second by David Weber.

{tab=Treasurer's Report}

Treasurer’s Report: The bank balance is $13,936.08.  Year to date, 141 donors have contributed $5,430.00, $641.00 from Architectural Control, Attorney Rioth reduction $1,127.50, and $6.36 in bank interest.  Total expenses to date $9,045.83 – no new expenses since last meeting.

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

Treasurer David Weber then asked for a motion to pay a new bill from Attorney Lenard Rioth in the amount of $1,757.00.  He also stated he talked with the Association insurer and they agreed to insure for another year to cover general liability and for director’s errors and omissions.  That will cost approximately $1900.  All members agreed to authorize payments after a motion by Jim Zalmanek and a second by Fred Lanyon.

{tab=Arch Control}

Architectural Control:  Resident Kenneth Scott Dunphey of 18655 Pike View Way requested permission to erect a storage shed on his property.  Set backs are in order and the shed will be the same color and finish as the existing home.  Request was approved by the Board after a motion to accept, pending payment of a $25.00 fee, by Fred Lanyon and a second by Frank Chuba.

{tab=Old Business}

Old Business: President Beth Lonnquist informed the Board that Courage to Change/Soaring Hope at 18375 Spruce Road has decided not to ask the County for a zoning variance at this time and will continue with their stated number of residents at five or less.

There is a petition being circulated for RRR residents to sign against a zoning variance being granted – so far, over 150 signatures have been obtained.

The Board approved covenant changes after a motion by David Weber and a second by Fred Lanyon.  Tri Lakes Printing will print and collate, and Board members will fold, stuff envelopes and stamp them for mailing with a cover letter.  Residents will be asked to return the ballot within two weeks.

President Lonnquist gave the Board an update on previously approved Architectural requests: the Leiker garage, the Krehbiel home, the Yack foundation, and the Pryor’s garage.  A check was received from the Leiker’s.

The tennis court was mentioned and there was concern that debris at the north end of the court could be a safety issue for people playing tennis.  It was felt that just pouring dirt at the northwest corner of the fenced area is a temporary measure because of erosion and putting in road base would be a better and more permanent solution.  The road base can wait until spring, but in the meantime Board members will meet on 20 November at 1230 to pick up dirt at Guenther’s and at 1300 to pick up timbers and rocks at the north end of the court.  President Lonnquist and resident Tom Guenther generously offered to donate dirt from their properties to fill in the northwest corner as a temporary measure.  This measure was approved after a motion by Fred Lanyon and a second by Kevin Guy.

{tab=New Business}

New Business: Treasurer David Weber was asked about a long term budget for the Association that he said he has in place and was distributed to members in the past.  He will send copies to new Board members.

According to Director Fred Lanyon, Dr. Judith Miller has plans to possibly purchase the house at 18375 Spruce Road from owner John Green and says that she has resources for the purchase.

Round The Table was the last issue with comments from the Board members and guests.  P. K. Robinson asked who owned the pond on Red Rock Ranch Drive.  Tom Guenther stated it belongs to Dave Miller and is a spring fed pond.  Next, P. K. asked about dirt roads in his area of Pixie Park where speeders race through.  He raised this question at a previous meeting and was advised to contact the Sheriff’s office.  Director Jim Bergeron said he could contact the El Paso County Roads Department to see if they will spray the road with magnesium chloride that they have done on El Rancho Way.  It is a temporary solution that will cut down dust – but not speeders!  He then asked about construction equipment on Red Rock Ranch Drive and was told it was in place for installing water pipes and work on a water booster station.

Director Kevin Guy Felt Board members should not speak to the press on behalf of the Association unless there is a consensus of opinion.  He said members could speak as individual homeowners, but not on behalf of the RRRHOA.  This will be discussed at length during the December meeting.


With no further business to discuss the meeting was adjourned at 2020 following a motion by David Weber and a second by Kevin Guy.

The next regularly scheduled meeting will be at 1900 on Monday, 12 December 2016 at the Tri Lakes Cares building, 235 Jefferson Street, Monument.

Respectfully submitted,

Jim Bergeron 

Secretary/Recorder, RRRHOA
