c.      Special Resolution – Chandler Residence, 77 Whispering Pines Circle

A lengthy discussion followed on how the Covenants are an ‘agreement’ between and amongst the neighbors of the subdivision.  As a part of purchasing a home, or lot, in the subdivision the buyer is agreeing to abide by the covenants of the subdivision.  Mary Chandler has agreed to comply with the covenants and stated that she does not want to have extended parking past the 7 days as outlined in the covenants.  She will be sure that her contractors are not parking on the street.  (See ARTICLE 6: Dwelling Design and Construction Items, Section 8. Contractor Regulations. and Section 9. Construction Parking. )

Ron Cornelius stated it is clarified in the covenants what vehicles are allowed.  It was discussed as to what a ‘back up plan’ would be if violations should continue.  It is pretty clear in the covenants on what ‘steps or process’ to follow when it comes to enforcement of the covenants.  No special resolution was to be made.

d.      Updates on May Chipping service – Doc Ricketts completed the chipping for $4,025.  It was agreed that future participation should be monitored.

e.      Bruce Campbell Residence – An agreement was reached that Campbell will adhere to the Hornbaker Subdivision Covenants.  It still needs to be researched as to whether the drive is gravel or paved.  Is a second driveway allowed?  Board may have to consider an amendment to the Agreement to allow for the second driveway.

f.       City of Durango Water & Sewer Bills – It was reported that there is a new rate structure effective in July and will be retroactive to January 2015.
