Road Condition Update
Due to the current weather conditions, roads are extremely slick. Please avoid driving on them for the time bing if possible. Sanding is scheduled to take place over the next few hours. We highly recommend using chains, 4WD, low gear if you MUST travel.
If anyone has a medical emergency call Jeff 972-978-3203 or Rick 702-232-4572 and we will take you down.

DNR Burn Update

Questions About the Road Conditions?
If you have any questions or concerns involving the roads, please direct to:
Winter has arrived a bit early, so remember that road conditions can rapidly change this time of year. Keep your chains in your vehicle, use 4WD/AWD when on the road, and SLOW DOWN. The mountain is unforgiving when it comes to speed and not being prepared, so be ready for the conditions as much as you can be!
Annual HOA Board Meeting – Important Info
Here is a list of links to documents that were discussed at the
Annual HOA Board Meeting on Saturday, September 3, 2022.
HOA Project Information
We have several possible projects in our community that promote improving the infrastructure and the safety of our shared/community 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.
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.
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 (that are proposed to be at the expense of Iron County, NOT the community). Click Here for additional details about this project.
Fire and Safety Signs in and Around Our Subdivision
We have been in frequent communication with Iron County since last
September to obtain additional signs for our area. The following list
includes some of the more important signs related to fire & safety.
- Additional Speed limit signs
- NO CAMPFIRES – to be placed in pull-out areas where people camp below and above our subdivision
- NO FIREWORKS
- Warning (arrows or similar) for dangerous curves
- 4 WD vehicles ONLY
- At the top of the 17% grade stating: STOP-WATCH Up hill vehicles have the right of way

What Are Those Silver Trash Cans Along The Main Road For?
Homeowners, you may have noticed silver trash cans in various places on the main road. These trash cans are labeled with CH and contain a sand/gravel mixture. This can be used by residents to help prevent sliding or slipping.
Interested In Volunteering?
We ask for more community involvement in very important areas. If you have experience you believe will contribute to any committee (ARC, Fire & Safety, or Roads), please contact the board at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Important ARC Reminder to all HOA Members
If you are going to do anything to the exterior of your house or make any additions, please refer to the CC&Rs (available here) for requirements and/or restrictions. Under Article VI Architectural Control, Section 1, you are required to submit an application to the HOA before performing any work. An addition or structural changes may require obtaining a building permit from the county. HOA approval of your project is required PRIOR TO obtaining a building permit.

Remember, for ALL construction within the community:
*The property owner must provide a suitable dumpster or waste receptacle on the property owner’s building site within five (5) days of the commencement of construction and it must remain until the project is completed.
