Special Meeting - Public Comment Meeting For Proposed Covenant Amendment for RV & Trailer Storage - Aug 12th
Posted on Jul 17th, 2014
The RV/Trailer Committee has developed a proposed amendment to the protective covenants governing Columbine Knolls. A public meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 12 at 7pm at Normandy Elementary in order for the committee to receive input from the community. The proposed wording will be posted on the CKHA web site by August 7th or contact the Board to have a copy sent to you. Copies will also be available at the public meeting.
There will be a sign-in sheet at the public meeting for those who wish to speak. Speaking times will be limited to 3 minutes per household. If you wish to speak, we ask that you please prepare your thoughts in advance. Homeowners are also encouraged to submit written comments to the committee via mail or through Written comments will be accepted until August 22.
After receiving public input, the committee plans to meet again to finalize the proposed wording and present it to the Board for consideration. As stated in the existing protective covenants, any proposed amendment would not take effect unless approved by at least 50% of the homeowners.
The original (and current) covenants read “Temporary Structures: No trailer or like mobile unit shall be permitted to remain upon any lot either temporarily or permanently.” This language has been interpreted in various ways over the years by different homeowners, by the Board and by a Jefferson County judge. The result has been confusion and confrontation within the neighborhood.
In 1993, the Board passed a policy allowing RVs and trailers with certain restrictions. Unfortunately, that policy was not presented to the homeowners for their approval as an amendment to the covenants. Therefore, the 1993 policy was in conflict with the covenants and was invalid and not enforceable. In 2008, the Board revoked the 1993 policy, in effect reverting to the original unclear wording.
In late 2012, two different groups of homeowners proposed amendments to the Board for consideration.  At a special meeting prior to the January 2013 annual meeting, the CKHA Board formed an RV Policy Committee with the intent of developing a proposed covenant amendment to provide a lasting resolution. The committee surveyed homeowner opinion in March 2013, with results showing roughly equal support for allowing storage versus not allowing storage.
The committee struggled long and hard through 14 meetings and discussed various options. At one point the committee was divided and voted to put forth two separate proposals to the community for consideration. The committee decided that with two competing proposals, neither one would likely be successful because of the need for >50% approval for either one of them. In the end, the committee moved forward with a single compromise proposal that allows limited storage. This proposal will be discussed at the public meeting
Covenant Consolidation Complete
Posted on Jun 3rd, 2014
The Columbine Knolls covenant consolidation amendment has been approved by a majority of the property owners in each of the nine filings within the Columbine Knolls community.  The consolidation amendment was filed with the Jefferson County Clerk and Recorder June 3rd, 2014, and became effective that day.
THANK YOU to all the Columbine Knolls property owners who took the time and effort to review the proposed covenant consolidation amendment and then submit the signed consent form.
As a reminder, the consolidation amendment did not change the restrictions or responsibilities of property owners set out in the nine original sets of covenant documents.  The purpose of the consolidation was simply to replace the 9 sets of virtually identical covenant documents with a single set of covenant documents.
Thanks again for your help in keeping Columbine Knolls a great place to live.
