The meeting was called to order by President Beth Lonnquist at 1902.
It is noted that a quorum of Board members is not present, therefore, no decisions or approvals can be made at this meeting.
The minutes of the 08 April 2019 minutes were not approved in lieu of a lack of a quorum.
As per Association policy, residents Kim and Trey Roby of 18040 Forest View Road presented their requests for a deck and corral fencing. After discussion with Board members, the Roby’s agreed to alter the fence request from corral to split rail. Members present agreed to the plans, and as soon as a 5th Board member agrees, the project can proceed pending a building permit number. The required fee was paid.
Shannon Kittleson stated that they have three lots and asked if permission is needed to erase the lot lines and have one large parcel. That is accomplished through El Paso County. She also stated that they are considering a fence in the future and is aware of the request form.
The Garza home needs driveway information, permit numbers and a check to the HOA.
An e-mail was sent to him in this regard in February, 2019.
No plans have been received from Skip Chang who bought two lots that he will eventually subdivide. He plans on building a 2400 square foot garage.P.K.Robinson submitted a request for a Tuff Shed at 4625 Limestone Road that measures 6’by 15’. It is not visible from the street and the required fee was paid. Approval will be given when a 5th member agrees with the 4 Board members present.
President Lonnquist will send a letter to the Kraus residence about a portable toilet that has been next to the one stall detached garage for some time. That will be sent with Board approval once a quorum is achieved.
Ryan and Jamie Madison had received a letter from the RRRHOA concerning chickens on their property and asked to address the Board about the matter. He stated that the realtor who sold the house assured them that chickens were permissible on the Ranch and they further felt that chickens were not considered animals or livestock. President read the covenants regarding animals that does include chickens as prohibited and assured the couple that the Board is bound to enforce all aspects of the covenants. It was agreed that the chickens would be removed within 30 days. Mr. Madison gave an envelope to Kevin Guy with a request for fencing. No action taken with a lack of a quorum.
