of the previous meeting
for review by the Renovation Committee and to inform owners about
approval of these minutes will be made at the next committee meeting.
Participating in the
Mike Lindseth, Jessie Lindseth, Darnell
Boehm, Jerry Niegelsen, Fiona Halfon, Bruce Katz, Brian Skoog, Brian Thompson
The meeting began at 7:00pm CST and
ended at 8:20pm CST.
Everyone liked the natural cedar color
on the deck railings and the Porte Cochere. With the intense sun on
most of the decks it would be very difficult to maintain with natural
color stain without redoing it almost every year which no one was in
favor of so we agreed to continue with the darker stain on the deck
railings. But with most of the cedar in the Porte Cochere shaded by
the roof, Darnell and Fiona felt that a natural cedar color stain
would work and recommended that we use it on the Porte
Best guess now is that project will
complete on or around October 15, 2007. Any owners wanting to get
access to their units before scheduled completion of November 1, 2007
for painting, etc. will need to contact Darnell Boehm for approval.
The other great news is that the project
is coming in on budget and may come in a little below the $1.6million budget.
Entrances are done. The red accent on
the entry way doors look great-another great color decision by Fiona!
Chimney flues are all cut back.
A01 stairs, deck and patio are all done.
100% of the rock is done
Porte Cochere is built and waiting for
roof and stain which now will be a natural cedar color.
Landscape rock is done-thanks to Jerry
Niegelsen and his crew-the hardest working crew we have had on the
project and it looks great-way to pick out the best looking rock in Colorado!
Hot tub is in place with the new pumps
installed. Electric and water service to the tub still need to be installed.
Ski lockers have all been stained on the
outside and there is a can of stain in each of the 3 locker areas if
owners want to finish staining the inside of their own individual locker.
Roofers are now on site with the gutters
and downspouts back on the B building.
Gas meters still need to be moved if we
can ever get XCEL energy to MOVE!
Painters/strainers are 75% done.
Sprinkler system is starting to get
repaired with controls and main lines in but all the heads will need
to be replaced.
Low voltage power is in place for the
Double Eagle sign on 4 O'clock road.
Yet to be started:
Water line and electric to Hot Tub.
Pour concrete curb to help keep water
from draining under B building from parking lot.
Concrete pad for hot tub.
Railing doors on 4 decks and for hot tub.
New landing on B building fire escape.
Inside trim and carpet for entry ways.
Landing and stairs to hot tub.
Hand rails on external stairways on both
sides due to code as a result we will loose about 6 inches of
Board Meeting Items
Need a decision on hot tub signs to get
them made and in place before hot tub can be used according to code.
One of the signs needs to define hours of operation. Recommendation
from Darnell, after researching best practices from other management
companies in town was to go with "Hot tub will be closed from
10pm until 9am"-unanimously approved.
Other business was to consider change of
management company. Subcommittee of board consisting of Darnell Boehm
and Jerry Niegelsen sent out requests for proposal (defining our
requirements including closing down the hot tub every night) to
several management companies that they identified as the best ones in
town for our small complex. Received responses back and after
reviewing, met with the one that had sent back the best response and
then check references. After that process, the committee recommended
that we change management companies to Alpine Meadows.
After a discussion-- the proposal was
unanimously approved and the board granted authority to Darnell to
give 60 day termination notice to The Managers and to execute the
agreements with Alpine Meadows to have them start on November 1, 2007.
Great work and thank you to Darnell and Jerry.
One of the conditions of the new
management arrangement will be a joint meeting of the board and
management company on a quarterly time schedule to go over any
performance issues with the management company. This will hopefully
help to maintain a great consistent service! We will get a copy of
Alpine Meadow's responsibilities to all the owners at our next
homeowners'meeting. We hope that after Alpine Meadows is up and
running, if you feel they are not performing all the agreed tasks
then contact a board member so we can get it corrected.
