Minutes of Board Meeting on  July 3, 2001





July 3, 2001

PRESENT: Board of Directors: President, Jim Watson. Members:  Randy Fruzza, Keith Judson, Kelly Morris, and Joel Smith.


President Jim Watson called the meeting to order at 7:13 p.m. The meeting was held at Joel Smith's house. The purpose of the meeting was to prepare for discussion at the Storey County Planning Commission Meeting to be held July 5, 2001.

The following are concerns addressed at the meeting regarding the Pinon Crest Subdivision and its potential impact on other Virginia City Highlands properties:

Fire access requires 100 x 100-foot cul-de-sac per June 26, 2001 memo from Dean Haymore to the Storey County Planning Commission. The cul-de-sac does not appear on the plans submitted for the Pinon Crest Subdivision.

If a cul-de-sac is required on the private road, owner of Lot 117, Block M should be notified of new setback requirements, i.e., setback 30 feet from the easement line for any lot/lots fronting on a private road (Paragraph 4 of CC&R’s). Has the owner of Lot 117, Block M been re-notified of the new or "adjusted" setback requirement?

Does establishing a subdivision, such as Pinon Crest, within a subdivision (VCH) comply with County and/or State laws and regulations? (Title 15?)

The Easement Deed and Road Maintenance Agreement dated January 21, 2000 should be amended to specifically exempt VCHPOA from drainage, easement and road maintenance and repair including snow removal. This document should also be amended to state that snow removed from the road cannot be placed on or along any VCHPOA road and/or road easement drainage ditches or culverts. The private road easement must be maintained in compliance with Fire Department access requirements.

Pinon Crest Subdivision Easement Deed and Road Maintenance Agreement were not presented to or approved by VCHPOA Architectural Committee. (verify w/ Wally)

Clear-cutting of large trees (those with larger than 4 inch trunks) without Association approval.

As recommended in Dean Haymore’s June 26th memo, if the Planning Commission approves the new proposed lot line adjustment (Lots 130, 131, and 132, Block M), a drainage plan by a State of Nevada licensed engineer is required for each lot before a building permit is issued. Said drainage plan shall be so designed as to not impact abutting and downhill lots. The VCHPOA Board would request that the drainage requirement be amended to include "before and after construction" to the previous sentence.

Jim moved the meeting be adjourned at 10 p.m., Randy seconded, all approved.

Joel W. Smith, Secretary
