We will be holding our annual meeting on July 31st at 1:00 PM at the Grace Church Parish Hall. The address is 203 W. Main Street in BV.
Topics at the meeting will be the normal protocol, except that there are no previous year’s meeting minutes to approve.
At 4:00 pm, Dan & Kathleen Daly will be hosting a potluck/BBQ at their house for whoever wants to attend — 18795 Mountain View Dr.
John and Toby hooked up our stage discharge recorder meter for the 2019 season (April 28, 2019) – water is already flowing at a high level (>.5 CFS) – remember we just need 0.05 CFS flowing to be capturing water for our augmentation plan…we’ll check in periodically to see how the flow is keeping up into the summer!
Also please post your well meter reading for the spring – click the water meters tab to enter your reading – thanks if you have already posted your reading!
Hi MLME Neighbors, reminder that the 2018 Annual Meeting and picnic is scheduled for Saturday July 21 at 1PM at the Sangre De Cristo community room in Buena Vista. The Dalys again graciously offered to host the picnic afterward (~4PM) – please being a dish to share and something to grill for your family!
We had a great turnout for the meeting this year. Thanks again to the new ranch owners Rick and Katy for giving us the chance to ask questions and get to know them. I’ve posted the 2016 annual meeting minutes to our “Documents” page. I (Toby) am no longer a member of the MLME board (my 2nd term expired), so we now have Dan as the new board president, and added Susan as a new board member. (John remains as Treasurer, Sam as Secretary, Kris as member-at-large and winter road/plow contact). As some of you might have heard our lock on the National Forest Service/Wise gate was removed (not by our choice), and we’re working on getting the situation resolved. I hope everyone has a fantastic fall season!
Reminder that our annual meeting is scheduled for Saturday July 22, 2016 at 1:30PM at the Sangre De Cristo community meeting room (with picnic to follow at the Daly’s home on Mountain View Dr.). We have 2 board members with 3-year terms expiring. One of the members will run again, so we need at least 1 new board members to fill the 5 member board of directors. Please let us know if you are interested.
Thanks to the crew (Dan, John!) we now have our “stage discharge recorder” up and running and reading our McFadden creek flow every 15 minutes. Great work guys!

Unusually warm weather has snow melting quickly here at the ranch. I wanted to thank Kris and Nell G, Mike W, Geoff F. for helping remove the large aspen tree that fell across the road during the last high wind storm (a few weeks ago) – it was near the hairpin and completely blocked the road, so thanks to their quick work we didn’t have much disruption! Also thanks Kris, John O. and road crew (Cordovas) for keeping things under control this winter. We did have a good amount of snow in Dec/Jan/Feb and the roads were sometimes a challenge especially with the wind – thank you guys!
Along with tax day coming (April 15) I wanted to post an early reminder for sending in water meter readings – we had a few missing from last fall. Thanks to everyone who posted the readings, certainly helping keep our subdivision in compliance with the state water commissioners.
I hope everyone is enjoying our nice weather and beautiful place in the mountains! We haven’t had a board meeting in a while but will post dates and info for our next meeting.
Hi members, here is an update from our Road Committee:
This week we completed the fall road grading, with the work focusing on the main access road, Mountain View Drive.
We were unable to purchase any acceptable road base, the ACA material is not working, and we tried an experiment using 2 loads of crushed, recycled concrete between the cattle guards.
The roads are constructed and maintained for 20 mph traffic and will continue to experience accelerated wash-boarding if our traffic exceeds the posted 20 mph speed limit. So when you are driving please look at the speed you are driving so we can all drive on a smoother road surface.
