Conifer Mountain Homeowners Association

Meeting Minutes

June 11, 2005

Meeting was called to order at 10:10am by President Ted Morris.

Nancy Richardson gave the treasurer’s report. The funds in the savings account are starting to run low because of very little dues being paid. We need to get more homeowners to pay dues to keep funds available to pay meeting expenses, website, and the property taxes on the lot owned by the HOA.

Deputy Sheriff, Bob Sperry, from the Jeffco Sheriff’s was at the meeting to update on current issues such as crime, etc.

Ted reminded everyone that some homeowners and realtors selling homes in the area are not aware that there are covenants here on the mountain. They are posted on the website. One that has come up recently was that RV’s/trailers are not allowed on your property if they are being used to live in. It is okay to store RV’s on your property, as long as they are not being used for temporary living.

Someone brought up the question about a 40- acre property for sale on Nancys Drive. It appears that the for sale sign said something about subdividing the lot. It is unknown if they can subdivide according to the covenants.

Ted announced that he and the secretary, Jocelyne Morris, are resigning from the board, since they are moving out of the area. We need volunteers to become President and Secretary. New ideas and suggestions are welcome to the board. Ted has suggested that a trail system throughout the mountain would be nice, since the rights of ways are already there. But a committee or someone would be needed to head it up.

Jeremy from Mountain View Waste was at the meeting to tell all homeowners of a special pricing of $15 per month for trash pickup. Call the office at 1-800-571-8920 to set up service.

Nancy Richardson, our treasurer, is collecting aluminum cans for Alzheimer’s. Call her at 303-838-9768.

Someone asked about if the fire department was using GPS’s to mark the location of homes in the area. The status of this is unknown at this time.

The status of recycled asphalt for some of the roads on the mountain is unknown. Jeffco ran out of funds, and no one knows if we will get the roads done at all. Homeowners though should call the Jeffco Road and Bridge office at Shaffer’s crossing to keep them aware of the need for the recycled asphalt. The number will be posted on the website.

Some suggestions to increase dues revenue are to send a letter out to all the homeowners as reminders, not just the meeting notices. Also, at one time, a newsletter was sent out, so this should probably be done again.

People asked about a propane buyers group, but since many have converted to natural gas, there has been little interest. One person, Chip ?? has volunteered to head up a group to get a quote.

Volunteers for president were Alan Bonser, and for Secretary, Aimee Reichmann-Decker.

Meeting was adjourned at approximately 10:45am.
