Vice President: Andy Scott

Member At Large: Dave Meyer

Treasurer Designate: Ron Makela

Bob Bishop RESIGNED February 2021: THANK YOU BOB FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK FOR THE HOA!!

 

It was discovered in 2020 that Ravenna Hills and the Knolls never merged. Therefore Ravenna Hills and the Knolls are two separate HOAs, and 2 separate boards were elected. The HOA Boards have   been very busy reorganizing all the requirements due to the separation.

  1. Volunteers:

We always appreciate volunteers on the HOA committees, and continue to need homeowners that are interested in serving on the Ravenna HOA Board (or to only assist with projects as they are able).  The HOA board’s goal is to maintain property values and the beauty of Ravenna Hills. Please contact a Board member (phone, email) if you would like to assist. This would be much appreciated as the Ravenna Hills Board is acting as the Management Company in order to not increase monthly dues to the homeowners.

  1. 8. A Management Company may be required in the future in order for the HOA to have assistance with all the Colorado State Laws that are required of HOAs
