PROJECTS 2021:

  1. Updating/restating the RAVENNA HILLS CCRs, By Laws, Policy and Procedures, Rules and Regulations:

Mr. Fred Aldrich (attorney) has been contracted to assist with this project.

There has also been a dedicated group (committee) of homeowner volunteers in Ravenna Hills who have assisted with this process as well.  All of the CCRs, Policy/Procedures, ByLaws, Rules and Regulations will be evaluated by the Attorney and the Ravenna Board and volunteers, to update and restate as needed.

Thank you to all of the wonderful homeowner volunteers in assisting the Board. Once the CCRs are completed, all homeowners will need to vote to approve CCRs, via Proxy. Homeowner Meetings will be held as needed.

 

  1. PLEASE CONSIDER VOLUNTEER WORK FOR THE RAVENNA HILLS HOA. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF MINOR EASY TASKS TO CONSIDER. Contact a Ravenna Hills Board Member if you are interested.    

 

  1. Trees – Tree trimming in the common areas is ongoing per budget. Bookcliff Gardens and T4 Trees/Bookcliff Gardens stated this year that the Pine trees need more water. Adequate water will keep the Pine tree healthy and prevent insects from invading the pine tree, thus potentially eliminating the need for treatment/spraying of insects.

Please consider watering your PINE trees in the winter!  Every 3 months thru the winter (unless snow is on the ground) , water the root system , which extends beyond the trunk of the tree, for 20-30 minutes.

  1. Fernwood and Sparrow Court: Process started in August 2021 (thanks to homeowner Jimmie Renfro) to seek converting Fernwood Court to a City Street. Austin Group was hired to prepare a report that was sent to the City. The City of Grand Junction will evaluate the Report and determine if Fernwood Court can be accepted as a city street. Improvements to Fernwood Court street and sidewalk may be needed before the City of Grand Junction will accept the street. The homeowners on Fernwood have been contributing a monthly amount to their street fund for improvements, and this money will be used for any improvements. Sparrow Court will not be accepted by the City due to the limited size. The homeowners on Sparrow Court will continue monthly dues to their street fund to cover any future costs for repair.
  2. Nature AreaMaintenance of the Nature Area was started this summer, to mitigate the risk of fires. A Large amount of dead wood was removed. Thank you to all the homeowners who volunteered to help with clearing out some of the dead wood in the Nature Area! There is still a Large amount of dead wood in the Nature Area. The process of removing the dead wood will be on going and most likely will occur the summer of 2022. Volunteers are careful of the wildlife (deer) who reside in the nature area. 2 new NO TRESSPASSING signs were posted.

** THE NATURE AREA AND THE GROUNDS AROUND POND 1 AND POND 2 AND POND 3 ARE PRIVATE PROPERTY!

 INDIVIDUALS IN NATURE AREA, and Ponds WHO ARE NOT RESIDENTS OF RAVENNA AND KNOLLS ARE TRESPASSING. 

  1. PONDS: The Ponds are for the irrigation system for Ravenna and Knolls. NO swimming, NO throwing rocks, NO feeding ducks, Please do not disturb the Ponds!
  2. Irrigation:   Irrigation system will be shut down and the irrigation pipes will be blown out when Bookcliff determines when this is needed based on weather, sometime this fall.  RAVENNA HOMEOWNERS DO NOT NEED TO HIRE A COMPANY TO HAVE THEIR SPRINKLER SYSTERM BLOWN OUT IN THE FALL. Signs will be posted at 27.5 road and Cortland Ave. entrances when irrigation is OFF for repairs.
  3. ELECTION OF RAVENNA HILLS HOA BOARD: Will take place at the first meeting after the annual meeting of the Executive Board, which will be posted. Please contact a current board member with any nominations or interest to join the board. The position of secretary for the HOA is needed!
  4. 2022 Ravenna Hills Budget:

Ravenna Hills HOA monthly dues will fluctuate yearly as the costs are based on the budgeted annual expenses.  Our monthly dues for 2022 have increased – see Assessment sheet. Dues for 2022 were increased due to the increased costs for: Accounting Firm, electricity, landscaping and incidental needs(trees, fences), and paying Knolls our 28% of the shared costs of maintaining the Irrigation, Ponds, Pumps, common Areas.

  1. COLLECTION POLICY OF UNPAID ASSESSMENTS: This Policy can be located on the Ravenna Website. Along with all of the other Policies.  Ask a Board member for assistance if needed.
  2. SNOW REMOVAL : Bookcliff Gardens will remove snow from Ravenna Hills sidewalks and driveways when the snow is 2 inches or more. Call 970-210-7521 if your sidewalk and driveway were not shoveled. Bookcliff Gardens will be contacted to come back and complete your sidewalk and driveway.
