Monthly Meeting Minutes
March 1, 2005
Stephen Musser, Cindy Rogers, Wally Corey, Bill Redman, Sherry McCready and Susie Deller
Meeting Date: 3-1-05 @VC Highlands Fire Station
Called the meeting to order at 7:10 P.M.
Members present: Stephen Musser , Cindy Rogers, Sherry McCready, Bill Redman and Wally Corey. The beginning part of this meeting was a joint meeting with Board members Sherri Beckerman and Linda Armour present.
2. Guest speaker Dean Haymore was present to answer questions and concerns regarding the County¹s role in enforcing our CCR¹s and Guidelines. When builders come before the County with their plans, the Building Department supports our authority by making sure that the builders have signed documents from the Architectural Committee before proceeding further. Dean also mentioned that the County has adopted new estate zoning EIVCH. Between the County regulations and the CCR¹s - the more restrictive of the two will be used. The County is being pressured by manufactured home dealers to open this door up here. There can be no discrimination made against these homes. They do have to meet all our specifications though to be allowed. Mr. Haymore¹s biggest recommendations had to do with fire retardant materials being used here in the Highlands. He believes we should be pushing fire safety above all else because it¹s not IF a fire will come but WHEN! He also would like to see a 4' lighted pole at property entrances to accommodate emergency crews in locating residences.
