The Joint Boards authorized Westwind to initiate
advertisement for a new community manager at the November meeting. We anticipate interviewing new applicants by mid-December, as we hope to have a new person before the end of December. While the
state requires a certified community association manager, we are also looking at individuals with exceptional management skills that can transition into the certification process. Crystal Lakes is a
large, remote, and complex community and we hope to find a competent individual to work with us.
Randy has done an outstanding job in this position
and he will be greatly missed, he has so much knowledge to share that we hope to have someone ready to step in before his departure. Randy came into a situation where there were no employment
policies and practices, as HMI mandated that all employees were theirs and provided no assistance when their contract was terminated. Randy, we appreciate your efforts for a job well

Morgan Timber has completed work on Filing 13 Tract E open space, the road into the site
has been leveled, reseeded and closed. The Forester, Matt Tobler, has done some cleanup work on the bank next to Osage, and we will have to see how the access that was created comes through the
winter and spring.
Next spring work will start on Filing 13 Tract F and work on Filing 13 Tract J and Filing
12 Tract A will be evaluated. Morgan Timber did not bid on these but will evaluate work that he feels he can complete within the time frame of the grant.
DaVinci Sign Systems, Inc. has been awarded the sign project in Crystal Lakes. The main
entrance sign has been funded by the Crystal Lakes Community Fund Association and the CLRRA is funding two smaller signs, one for basecamp and one for Huron, replacing damaged
There has been a delay in starting the project as DaVinci requested approval to change
the foundation design that was submitted to the county for the building permit. The CLRRA Board approved the request with the stipulation that DaVinci provide the engineering and cover any
additional costs charged by Larimer County.
Bear Creek Development has graciously offered to allow the entrance sign to be placed on
their property adjacent to Creedmore Lakes Road just south of Menominee Circle.
Recently, the Board approved repairs for safety reasons to the electrical systems in the
basecamp facility and other repairs to the maintenance buildings; additionally, a request for quote was approved to develop a scope of work and design documents that will be necessary to allow CLRRA
to issue a request for quote for work on the maintenance buildings. These facilities have been in serious need of repairs for years and will be funded through our capital reserve
