- COMMENTS BY ASSOCIATION MEMBERS
& DISCUSSION OF COMMENTS
- Jim Watson spoke against the proposed CC &R
revision that would grant multiple-lot owners a reduction in yearly HOA
dues. He also requested the addition of a clause for fire-safety, which
would entail a 30-day notice to enter Highlands’s area
property to remove dead or dying trees. The homeowner would have that
time period to remove the trees and if not removed, the HOA would
contract for the removal. Also, an explanation was given on the benefits
and problems with consolidating lots with Storey County.
- Commissioner Kershaw spoke on the Federal
emergency snow funds that the State will be receiving, this will filter
down to Storey and then some to VCHPOA. A CD with NRS 318 was given to
the Board; his recommendation is to consider a GID (General Improvement
District) for the roads and other major areas that need regular
maintenance and upgrading. Many HOA’s have GID’s and they seem to work
