- Holly Antoun Denial of Application for Short Term Rental-A discussion was held regarding reconsideration of the board denial of the application. As a part of this discussion the board considered whether or not it should share the names of owners that object to short term rentals in their neighborhood with the applicant. The board concluded that in the interest of all owners that it is best to keep the names anonymous so as not to create bad feelings or ill will among neighbors. The board also concluded that the reasons for the original denial of the application still apply. It was moved, seconded and unanimously approved that the denial be sustained. It was decided that the board would send a letter confirming the denial to the applicant.
- Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (CCIOA)-Gary indicated that in talking further with Stuart Churchill with Heritage Title regarding the ownership of the common areas within the SPOA, he was informed that the original covenants for the association were recorded October 5, 1971 and that Stuart could find no record that ownership of the common area in Fairway Meadows Filing number 1 had ever been deeded to the association. Hence, Steward is of the opinion that ownership of the common areas is “in limbo”. The 1975 covenants provided that the declarant LTV Recreation would convey title to the common area to the association before its Class B membership expires on March 1, 1984. The 1976 covenants provide that the declarant will immediately convey title to the common areas by one or more deeds to the association. Evidently, Heritage has no record that this ever occurred. Our attorney, Mike Holloran informed us that if the association did not own common property he felt that we would not be subject to CCIOA. Following discussion is was decided that Gary will contact Mike Holloran to confirm his interpretation of CCIOA to the board in writing. Subject to confirmation by Mike Holloran, Gary will then contact Heritage Title and request a quiet title for the common area in an effort to ascertain the name of the owner of the common area. Gary will then ask Heritage Title for a title opinion for the common area within the SPOA. Gary will send a copy of the 1971 covenants to the board.
- Annual Meeting Date-Following a brief discussion it was decided that Gary will contact Rex’s to reserve a meeting room for our annual meeting on February 15, 2015 with a back-up date of February 8, 2015 and advise the board of the date.
Meeting adjourned at 3:05pm.
