Dear Wolf Creek Property Owner and neighbors
This letter is to invite you to the Annual Meeting of the MHOA, to be held on Friday December 30, 2016 at Wasatch Room, The Club at Wolf Creek, 3815 North Wolf Creek Drive, Eden, UT 84310. At that meeting we will hear from John Lewis about the progress at the Wolf Creek Resort, we will review the proposed budget for 2016 (attached), and the Member Representatives of the HOAs will elect the continuing Board of Directors for the MHOA. Nominations are requested for three two-year positions. The remainder of this letter provides information on these points.
Background: For the majority of neighborhoods, there is both a neighborhood association HOA (e.g. Trappers Ridge HOA, Fairways HOA, Retreat HOA and Highlands HOA), and the community-wide Master HOA. This letter concerns only the Master HOA (MHOA), which was formed through the 2002 Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) on the development lands of Wolf Creek. It is an “umbrella” organization for the Wolf Creek Resort. The MHOA is an independent entity comprised of the neighborhood associations of Wolf Creek, controlled by a Board of Directors, who are elected by vote of Member Representatives of the neighborhood HOAs.
Progress at Wolf Creek: The Wolf Creek Golf Course, enjoyed an excellent year. John Lewis has completed initial planning for the Bridges at Wolf Creek on the north-west area of the resort above Fairways. The entry is being built off Fairways Drive.
A revised Master Plan for Wolf Creek, including the Bridges, was submitted and approved by Weber County. A central commercial area has been planned with some limited areas rezoned. During these changes, the open space area has been maintained. The county and Utah Department of Transportation have helped with the funding and planning of a path from Wolf Creek to Eden, parallel to the road, which is in the design and permitting stage. These trail grants require local matching funds, which John Lewis has kicked off with a substantial commitment of $50,000 to fund part of the initial stages of construction. If you wish to help, tax-deductible donations can be sent to WeberPathways.org, earmarked Wolf Creek Trail. Weber Pathways is managing the path project.
During 2016, we set up a Wolf Creek Master HOA website at http://wolfcreekresortmasterhoa.com which includes archive of CCRS and other useful records. We will continue to communicate electronically with owners, through the neighborhood HOAs.
The MHOA continues to operate a Design Review Board (DRB), which reviews plans for proposed structures on parcels covered by the MHOA. Structures are required to conform to the Design Guidelines of the DRB. Independent Architectural Committees or DRBs operate in the Highlands, The Retreat and Fairway Oaks, applying their own specific design guidelines, schedules of fees and security deposits. The MHOA is also enforcing lot for sale signage requirements, established in 2008.
Financials and MHOA Budget 2017: The neighborhood HOAs conduct the needed trail maintenance and enforcement for their communities, with annual or monthly assessments. The MHOA itself did not charge annual assessments for 2013 through 2016, and again has budgeted zero assessment for 2017 since the current funds in hand are approximately $60,000. See attached proposed budget, which will be voted upon at the Annual Meeting, December 30, 2016. Please pass your thoughts on this budget to your neighborhood HOA representatives.
Elections: Please contact your neighborhood HOA if you are interested in standing for election to the MHOA Board. It is important for the Owners to be active in the MHOA, which meets quarterly. Three Directors will be elected at the Annual Meeting based on voting by Member Representatives of the neighborhood HOAs. As described in the master CCRs, the number of votes cast by a Member Representative will be based on the number of platted lots in the neighborhood; the Directors shall be Owners with assessments paid to date. All candidates are considered to be elected At Large.
