The election of new board members was first on the agenda.  David Abernethy and Darlene Stapleton volunteered to be on the board.  Vern Schmieden made a motion that the nominations be accepted with Ken Franc’s second.  The election was held by voice vote and it was unanimous.  The first board meeting will be in early June.  Those leaving the board are Alan Bonsor and Ruth Schmieden.  Thank you for your service

The Candidates for the upcoming Elk Creek Fire Board Election were introduced. Five of Seven candidates were present. They shared their qualifications and reasons they wanted to be elected. The ballots for this election must be in by May 6.  We thank them for their time and answering our questions

Irv Saltzman shared with us the planning for the Conifer Recreation Center.  The two sites they’re looking at are the Conifer High School, 100 acres, or Beaver Ranch, 400 acres. The building will have 2 pools, a fully equipped weight room, built green, and belong to our community.  A planning meeting will be June 19, 7:00 p.m. at Conifer High School.  Any questions please contact Irv at Irvsaltzman@evcohs.com

Old Business:

Don Jacobs gave an update on Staunton State Park progress and trails committee. 

Spring Clean-up is scheduled for June 21st, meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Fire House for vest and trash bags.  

Discussion was opened regarding the Park on Unit 5, Lot 44 and liability for our area.  Many present wanted to look into selling the property or giving it to Elk Creek Fire since they have a cistern on the property. No decision was made since only 30 people were present.  The new board will notify all property owners before any steps are taken so all will have input.  Please e-mail any suggestions toConiferMountainLand@gmail.com

Margie Abernethy discussed some plans for increasing our membership and involvement of more homeowners with our HOA.  The board is open to any suggestions. 

Meeting was adjourned at 12:00. 

Respectfully submitted,  Ruth Schmieden, Secretary
