There are a set of Restrictive Covenants (RCs), which were created to help each
owner protect their own rights & that of their investment, however there is
NO "official" Home Owners Association. Hence, there are NO legally required
dues or fees. Enforcement of the RCs is by each owner only and any owner can
enforce them should the situation arise. Over the past 31+ years, this has never
been needed/done, to the best of my knowledge." There is NO independent
funded organization/association enforcing the RCs. No permanent Mobile or
Trailer homes are allowed on the ranch. Campers & Motor homes (RVs) are
allowed only as temporary dwellings, while either constructing a permanent
home or while visiting, as on vacation.
These were done by the Developers before we bought the property. (1988)
Dirtbike (motorcycles) are strictly NOT allowed, as Colorado is a very delicate
environment and dirt bikes are very damaging & this environment does not heal
within decades. This is typical of Colorado & folks attitudes there about their lands.
