Upcoming expenses: $1,300.00 left to spend on Firewise.  Financially in better shape than last year..

 

Firewise Done for the year.  Last chipping occurred on Friday 9/12/20.  $1,000 donation from the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) will be donated to the Tri Lakes fire department chipping program.

 

New Business: Beth is in process of getting new bids for insurance for next year.  Expect the premiums to be approximately $3K - $4k.  Same as current year.  Due to our past litigation, it will take approximately 5 years before the rates go down.

 

Rosilla McKean asked the board on the storage of a pop-up camper with a “camo” tarp at the corner of Limestone and Red Rock Dr.  Beth Lonnquist has a picture of the said camper.  The camper is ~15’ from the road with no tree cover or any other vegetation cover.  The covenants does not forbid the storage of the camper on the property.  It only says that the home owner should attempt to make them less conspicuous and look nice. 

 

David Jones has concerns about a log burning fire pit on El Rancho Way.  Permanent Fire-pits are not directly addressed in the covenant.  Regulations regarding fire pits and open flames are controlled by the county and various fire burning restrictions.  El Paso county is currently in a Stage 2 Fire Restriction (as of August 24, 2020).  Stage 2 mandates no wood burning fires outdoors.  RRRHOA has no jurisdiction on this matter.

 

We still have 1 open board seat available.  If any RRRHOA member in good standing is interested in joining the board, please email your interest to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

The next regularly scheduled meeting will be at 1900 on Monday, 12 October 2020 at Tri Lakes Cares, 235 Jefferson Street, Monument, Colorado assuming the meeting restrictions are lifted or Skip Chang’s shop.  A Zoom meeting would be a replacement.
