Spur Ranch Road Association Annual Meeting Report

Dear neighbors,

            The SRRA annual meeting was held this past Sunday. Minutes of the meeting will be posted on the SRR blogsite at

http://spurranchroad.blogspot.com in a few days (no password required), after the directors have had a chance to approve them. In the meeting, the three following persons were elected or re-elected to three year terms on the Board of Directors: (Contact information for all the directors is on the blogsite.)

                        Jim Garland (president)

                        Al Webster (treasurer)

                        Henry McCormick (vice-president)

The following two persons comprise the remainder of the Board and have two years remaining on their terms:

                        Mary Anne Stickler (secretary)

                        Jake Greene (member-at-large)          

            At the meeting, a key discussion topic was the condition of the flooded portion of the road west of the railroad tracks. We will organize a discussion group after the holiday season to analyze the problems and investigate potential solutions and costs.

            One request: It is difficult for the Board to keep current on residents' contact information, unless we are notified by community members. For example, we have no way of knowing who are on the governing boards of homeowners' associations, unless somebody informs us of the names. Ditto for people who change email accounts, or who haven't been receiving emails. Please let us know this information, because we want to make certain that everybody in our community is up to date on road issues. Thanks!


Jim Garland, president

Final Notice: Spur Ranch Road Association Annual Meeting

Final Notice: Spur Ranch Road Annual Mtg

Please come to our Spur Ranch Road Association annual meeting this Sunday, November 16, 3:00 to 5:30 pm, at my home - 102 Spur Ranch Road. At the meeting, members will be asked to vote on three open SRRA director positions (the Garland, Holzer, and Webster terms are ending), as well as the 2015 proposed budget.
We will provide a detailed update on the road condition, emphasizing this year the flooding and damage to the road west of the railroad tracks, as well as potential ways to remediate the damage. I especially hope residents on the west end of the road will attend the meeting and participate in the discussion. There are some important issues to discuss.
Again, let me ask for nominees and volunteers for the SRRA board, and to urge those of you who haven't paid your dues to do so before or during the meeting. Please email or phone me if you wish to volunteer or nominate somebody to the board.
Let me also remind you of the SRRA website, which contains minutes of meetings, announcements to the community, and a forum for community discussion. The link is: http://spurranchroad.blogspot.com/. No password is required.
            At the conclusion of the formal meeting, we will provide beverages and light food at our customary potluck. Attendees are encouraged to bring an appetizer to share. Thanks very much!

Spur Ranch Road Update

Dear Neighbor,

            Spur Ranch Road West of the Railroad Tracks to Avenida Compadres will be repaired starting this Wednesday and/or Thursday. If  you drive this section of the road, please be extremely careful, since the sides of the road are unstable in places, Please give road machinery wide berth and drive slowly.

            FYI, we had previously placed safety cones along the edge of the road at the points of greatest danger, but somebody stole them. We bought new cones, and yesterday somebody stole those also. Please let me know if you have any idea who the guilty party might be, so we can notify the police. The cones cost your association several hundred dollars. Because the willful theft of items intended to safeguard the public is involved, there is the possiblity the crimes are felonies.



Jim Garland, president
