Upcoming HOA Project Information & Voting Opportunities
We wanted to make you aware of some exciting opportunities in front of us that require us as a community to review and vote on.
We have several projects in our community that promote improving the infrastructure and the safety of our property. The projects will be in the upper meadow. With the scope of the projects involving “Common Area” as described in the HOA CC&R’s article 3. Section 1.(c), we need to review and vote on these projects. As per the CC&R’s, the board is required to get a 2/3rd vote before entering into an agreement that uses “Common Area” to provide this additional infrastructure to our community.
We are notifying you as members of the Cedar Highlands HOA that we will have a vote on Project 2 at the Annual Meeting, Saturday, September 3rd, 2022. It’s important that you vote on these topics, either in person, by mail or by proxy. This vote will determine if the board proceeds with entering into these agreements on behalf of the HOA.
Both projects provide huge benefit in the event of an emergency. For example, there will be increased water storage for fire protection, a heated fire house with a fire engine that is filled with water, ready to go, a Helipad in the event of emergency evacuation. Residents and the surrounding homes on the mountain would have access in a medical emergency or fire to life saving evacuation.
It has always been desired by the Cedar Highlands community to have services like these. We tried facilitating them as a town; in the end no one liked the increased taxes and expense, so the town was disbanded. It will never be cheaper for us than having these services provided by Iron County through our MSF tax assessment. That tax is spread over all the residents of Iron County, 50,822 residents, versus trying to cover these costs with 165 lot owners.
Project 1 – New Underground Water Storage Tank
UPDATE: Details of this project are still being finalized, so voting will not take place at the annual meeting.
The first project is the addition of a 500,000-gallon underground, cement water storage tank to increase the water reserves needed for Cedar Highlands, which also improves fire protection. Our current upper meadow tank holds 165,000 gallons. Click Here for additional details about this project.
Project 2 – New Fire House and Helipad
The second project is a Fire House and Helipad to further protect the residents and surrounding communities. Click Here for additional details about this project.
The HOA board will be discussing these issues during the next couple of meetings, beginning Thursday, July 14, 2022, at 6 pm. If you have any questions, comments, or would like to be part of the discussion, please attend in person or thru the web link. Feel free to email the board directly, as we are happy to address any concerns or questions.
Ballots for Project 2 will be sent by mail along with the ballots for HOA board director’s positions (2) that need to be filled; additional ballots will be available at the HOA meeting. There will be one vote per lot per proje
Alert: Theft in Subdivision
May 6, 2022
On E. High Mountain View Drive, a white Ford F150 pickup backed up into a neighbor’s yard and stole a garden trailer. If anyone sees a white Ford F150 pickup with a trailer in back, please take a picture or get the license plate number and notify the board immediately.
We live in a peaceful area and sometimes let our guard down. Let this be a warning to be vigilant for any strange vehicles and do not leave personal items exposed for view from the road. When possible, get pictures of the vehicle and plate. Even during daytime hours, keep your garage doors closed.
Please direct any questions or concerns to: firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH OR MOVE ANY TRAPS THAT YOU MAY SEE.
There will be biologists coming and going during this period of time. They will provide us with the results of their research sometime during the summer.
