Dakota Ridge Homeowners Association
Meeting Minutes
February 25, 2010

A Board meeting of the Dakota Ridge Homeowners Association was held on February 25, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. in the Board Room of The Commercial Property Group, LLC at 3001 S. Lincoln, Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Board Members: Tomas Stone
Michael Williams
Tim DePuy
Diane Pietig (by phone)

Guests: Medora Fralick
Stephanie McDonald

The first item of business was the Financial report. Micheal Williams noted that there is nothing new to report and the trends continue from the last meeting. The expenses are over slightly due to admin/acctg time spent on the road project and other administrative issues. Due to significantly lower than budgeted expenses for snowplowing, ARC administration, road maintenance, water repair and deferred sign maintenance, the Association net is substantially under budget. The money set aside for sign acquisition will be used in the upcoming year. The 2010 budget has been approved by the board previously and will come before the membership at the Annual Meeting for ratification.

The next item on the agenda was the Water Update. Medora related the comments of the Association member, Steve Dearholt, to the Board per a phone conversation that he felt there was no need for water conservation at this time. Several board members noted they did not agree but thanked Medora for bringing this viewpoint to the Board’s attention.

Under Roads, Medora reported that she, Tim DePuy and Tomas Stone went on a inspection of the Dakota Ridge roads along with Brian Len of NWCC and Matt Ringer of Connell Resources. Information will be provided to all owners from the survey for review. An email from owner Nancy Jarchow was received asking that another opinion on the roads be obtained. She provided information to contact another source to conduct a review of the project through pictures for this purpose. After discussion the Board designated Tim to spearhead this project.

Tim made a motion to contact the proposed expert and talk with him about the roads and then talk to the board members before committing to spending any money for another opinion and was seconded by Tomas. A vote was taken with all voting in favor and none opposed.

Under the ARC report, Diane Pietig asked Medora to follow up with the owner of Lot 60 regarding the landscaping plans which were partially approved with conditions and partially deemed unacceptable. Medora will meet with the owner in the spring after the snow is gone to resolve the part of the landscaping plan that was not accepted. Additionally, a reminder will be sent to the owner as to the building time frame for the completion of the project.

Under Other Business, board governance was discussed. Comments from ballots were read to the Board. Reports from Board members for the Annual Meeting are due by March 5th. An automated phone call will be sent to all owners reminding them to send in their ballots and of the Annual Meeting date on March 13th at 9:00 a.m.

The next monthly meeting is still to be determined.

There being no further business the meeting was adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,
