Brian Hendrix of 18620 Pike View Way requested permission to erect a carport , 12 feet by 21 feet, at the rear of his residence which will be shielded from view by numerous scrub oak trees. After discussion about carports on the Ranch, Mr. Hendix’s next door neighbors said they had no objection and it will not be visible from their house or the road. After looking at pictures of the carport, it was agreed to let Mr. Hendrix proceed after a motion by Fred Lanyon and a second by Lorrayne Hodge. The required fee was paid at the time of acceptance.

New Business: There was no new business to discuss. President Lee did say she would like to adjourn the meeting to give guests an opportunity to discuss the water issue on the Ranch. The meeting was adjourned at 1926 on a motion from Fred Lanyon and a second by Frank Chuba.
