NEW Business:

Vice President Miller stated Mr. Nowacki raised a concern about a former Board member’s personal reason for resigning from the Board and another Board member’s comments related to those personal views.  Furthermore, he went to suggest she “…should explain her concern at the Jan 8 meeting and provide us with an example of what she considers to be harassment and behaviors that cause anxiety and fear.”  What better example of harassment is there than Mr. Nowacki’s own words above.  It is not the responsibility of any Board member to clarify or justify their personal reasons for resigning.  The words speak for themselves.  These personal views are unrelated to the business of the Board and do not impact any business of the Board.   Therefore, the Board considers this issue is closed.  “Per your request Mr. Nowacki this concern is not valid; you can close out your inquiry.

President Lonnquist asked for articles for the annual newsletter be submitted by February.  Vice President Miller will submit an article on FireWise for the newsletter.  Treasurer Griffith will submit an article on Finance for the newsletter.

Homeowner correspondence to the Board:

Mr. Pryor:  Vice President Miller stated that Mr. Pryor’s reference to Colorado Revised Statute 38-33.3-308 is the wrong statute for being informed about Board meetings.  Therefore, his request is not valid as he did not cite the correct statute.  The Colorado Revised Nonprofit Corporation Act as of August 9, 2022, with a few exceptions, is the appropriate statute for this Board.

 Mr. Nowacki:  Mr. Nowacki feels he has not received adequate financial information. 

There was discussion about what the Board has already supplied to Mr. Nowacki.  Mr. Nowacki interrupted the speaker several times and was asked to stop.  He continued to interrupt and made several disrespectful comments to the Board.  Director Kittleson asked if his comments were Bullying.  President Lonnquist asked Mr. Nowacki to leave the meeting as he was being disruptive.  He refused.  The Zoom administrator removed Mr. Nowacki from the zoom call and the meeting continued.


Resident concerns:

Mr. Pryor inquired about repairs that were slated to be done “immediately” don’t seem to be done yet.

Mr. Pryor asked to see the minutes from a Special meeting on July 3.

President Lonnquist replied that the repairs will be done as soon as possible and the July 3 minutes will be posted to website.


Round the room:  Vice President Miller will provide an update to the park master plan at the February meeting.  Thank you to Mrs. Yack for sending information regarding an email management system.  There is concern about third party access to homeowners’ emails. 

Director Quinlan would like to go back to in person meetings.  There was discussion about this and no conclusion was made.
