Guests: Mark and Angi Morton, David Weitz

 

 The meeting was called to order by President Beth Lonnquist at 1903.

 

Architectural Control: Mark and Angi Morton submitted a request to build a house with one level above and one level below ground at 18365 Forest View Road.  The house will be 5,800 square feet including decks and garages.  The exterior will be a gray stucco siding with asphalt shingles.  There will be landscaping rock around the foundation extending to five feet. Plans had been sent to all Board members for review prior to the meeting.  Questions asked were colors to be used and building permit.  Colors are in compliance and building permit is pending.  The Mortons asked about the fee and will either mail it to the HOA PO Box or drop it off at President Lonnquist’s home.  The Board approved the request after a motion by Shannon Kittelson and a second by Jim Bergeron.

 

Guest David Weitz of 4675 Red Rocks Road presented a request that the RRRHOA partner with him to ask the Forest Service to designate certain areas next to Red Rock Ranch as parking during the day with no camping.  The areas in question abut the Ranch and have become a place for campers to stay for up to five months at a time.  There is concern about the danger of fire and health issues since the one bus in particular had no toilet facilities and nearby fields were being used. (See attachments for further detail) A motion was made by Kevin Guy to partner and forward support to the National Forest Service to establish trail heads with parking only and no camping.  A second was made by Jamie Madison and the Board concurred.

 

Minutes of the 11 May 2020 meeting were read and approved following a motion to approve by Bill Griffith and a second by Jamie Madison.

New Business: President Lonnquist thanked all for helping with the spring cleanup effort on the 6th and 7th of June.  It went well and the roll-off dumpster was filled.  The dumpster was not delivered on the scheduled time which led to a bumpy start, so a different company may be used next year if the Board decides to continue the clean-up program.

Kevin Guy requested $250 for supplies to repair sprinklers at the Nevins Park water outlet and also determine whether or not an anti-siphoning system is needed.  Jim Bergeron made a motion to authorize up to $250.00 for repairs, a second was made by Paul Tillotson and the Board agreed.

 

Resident Comments: Doreen McLaughlin asked to remove the “clothes line” section from the covenants.

 

Future Dates: Are still up in the air at this time because of COVID.
