Firewise: Guest Dave Pheteplace gave a presentation about Firewise on the Ranch and it was noted that he is now certified in that field by NFPA (National Fire Protection Association). There was recent news in the Colorado Springs Gazette about the Firewise program and the Red Rock Ranch was mentioned which is good publicity. Red Rock Ranch is one of seven sites in the nation that is noted for excellence, and Dave Pheteplace feels it is probably number one. He said he is ready to assess any property on Red Rock Ranch for owners who are interested in fire mitigation. On 10 October 2019 he attended a meeting at the Tri Lakes Fire Station that included the CEO of NFPA, State Representative Terri Carver, Forest Service reps, CUSP personnel, Tri Lakes Fire Department, the Gazette newspaper and KOAA TV.
Dave volunteered to remove chipping/trash from the Nevins Park and the Board will pay dumping fees of up to $40.00. Motion to pay was made by Kevin Guy with a second from Shannon Kittelson.
Old Business: Jamie Madison spoke of efforts to obtain grant money for Nevins Park up-grades, but discovered that most granters felt the need is greater elsewhere, especially in poorer communities. She suggested volunteer work by the RRR Board and residents to upgrade the tennis court such as repairs to cracked concrete, basketball hoops, and pickle ball courts. She was unable to find anyone for grass cutting, so Clair Brenneman will be asked to mow. Jim Bergeron will contact him for the job.
Jamie Madison: The chicken proposal is written. She will attempt to gather the 150 or more signatures by going door-to-door before a vote can occur. Legal advice is also necessary and the vote must be by U.S mail. President Beth Lonnquist will write an article for the web site advising residents that the petition drive will be forthcoming.
Insurance: President Beth Lonnquist has worked diligently to obtain insurance coverage for the Association with bids out to three companies and it is down to two companies of brokers. The pros and cons of each company were discussed at length among Board members. President Lonnquist will contact agent Matt Waddell and have Board members vote electronically before the end of October on the amount of coverage.
CONO Law Day is 09 November 2019 in Colorado Springs from 0845 to noon.
NEPCO is also 09 November 2019 from 0900 to noon at the Monument Police Station.’
Kevin Guy volunteered to write a proposal for Business Allowed Policies for RRRHOA.
Jim Bergeron lauded President Lonnquist for her diligence in attending all but one meeting in Denver for the depositions concerning the on-going law suit, as well as paying $20.00 each day for parking.
