WHAT’S HAPPENING IN MAY?
Here we are, and it’s already May. This year has been tough on us all, but I can feel the sunshine and warmer weather drawing everybody out of their houses and enjoying the outdoors. Covid 19 has stopped a lot of folks from getting out in large groups, but for those of you at the Ranch of the Rockies here is some Information for you.
We begin by being in a Fire Ban. That means no outside burning period!!
We do, however, have the RV Dump station open along with the restrooms.
Park Site C, the dog park, is open and there is a portable potty there.
The Burn Pit is now open!!! Now that the governor has lifted the stay at home order, we felt it was safe to open. Please respect our volunteers who work the gate, and do not expect them to assist with unloading your wood products. Also, remember that ONLY wood products can be brought to the pit, and nails must be removed to help prevent cuts and flat tires.
The Reservoir remains a work in progress. We are currently checking the water quality before fully re-stocking. We did a lot of work on the ditch that supplies water to the Reservoir. We are in the process of extending the parking lot to the west to allow 100 Yards more parking. We will announce the opening as soon as we can.
As the summer draws near, people will be coming out to the Ranch, and going to their properties as much as possible. Please practice social distancing and consider bringing your own grocery supplies from your home. We have very limited emergency and medical services in the local area.
We have an opening on the Board of Directors coming up this year. If you are Interested in being a part of this amazing mountain HOA, please consider standing for election. Send an email to Ranch of the Rockies with a brief paragraph explaining your background and interest in running. firstname.lastname@example.org
Recycling is a service we provide, but it carries necessary rules. PLEASE STOP putting glass in the aluminum can recycling bins. If you want to recycle glass, the Chaffee County recycling center just north of the airport on Gregg Drive takes clear, brown, and green glass. If you leave it here, it has to be sorted into the trash.
