There will be two seats to be filled on the RORA board this year. I hope that all of you give consideration to running for the RORA board.
I have been reading the 2014 Questionnaires and will answer several of the more common questions. I would like to thank all of you that said the board was doing a good job.
The roads on the Ranch and animal control seem to be a main subject that aggravates many people. The Board is in contact with Park County for their maintaining the county roads on the Ranch. We can make requests that something be done and follow up on our request but we cannot demand that they do it. We have almost 60 miles of roads on the ranch. One member wants Ranch Road paved. The cost of that project would use up Park County’s entire budget for the next 4 to 5 years. (Around $10,000,000), so I can assure you that won’t be done. If any member has any problems concerning the roads, the maintenance of the roads or the county plowing snow in your recently cleared driveway you should contact Park County.
ATV’s on the county roads, speeding and careless driving is illegal. RORA does not have the authority to stop anyone. We can only report it to the Park County Sheriff’s Office. Our Ranch manager is not deputized to do any Park County law enforcement.
Animal control is another problem. We have NO authority to fine or arrest anyone whose animals are running loose on your property or constant barking. Being a dog catcher is not one of our Ranch Manager’s job descriptions. Again, our Ranch Manager is not deputized to enforce Park County laws. Call Park County if you are experiencing any dog problems. It is the responsibility of the dog owner to make sure they follow State and Park County laws.
My favorite complaint is from one of our member’s concerning bears on his property. I thought at great length for the correct answer to his problem. Hummm…Rocky Mountains, vast forest, rural areas, abundant wildlife. Should they call the Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife? Humm! I will have to spend some more time pondering this problem.
Please feel free to stop by a Board meeting, or let the BOD know if you see anything we can do to make life better here at Ranch of the Rockies.
Hopefully I will have some info concerning the blocking of Hereford Way at the back of the Ranch.

Once again we are coming to the time of year when the RORA Board of Directors starts thinking about the up-coming election of board members. There will be two seats to be filled on the RORA board this year. So many of you have been instrumental in the activities on the ranch, either by volunteering at the burn pit, or one of the other many activities we have going on. I urge all of you to consider running for the board. Our community is truly a great place to live, and we all would like to continue that environment. As a member of the board, you get a chance to have direct input on the direction of the association, and decisions that are important to all of us.
As we head into spring, I am looking forward to once again getting up on a horse, or hiking in the forest around us. I have heard rumors that an equestrian group is in the early planning stages. Also, the Hiking Club has been around for a couple of years now, and I expect there will be many opportunities for some of their nearby hikes. Please let us know if you are interested in joining in one of these, or any other group around the ranch.
While I will be out of town for the Chili Cook Off, I look forward to seeing you at our annual meeting and picnic. If we can be of service, please let us know, or call John at the office. He can usually answer questions about what is going on around us, and direct you to services offered if you are in need of some help. Remember we have many people on the ranch who can offer anything from pet sitting to heavy construction.
