Facts about CLCC 1% Transfer Fee

In our last HOA Board Meeting past President Brian Owens shared the history and facts on the 1% transfer fee to dispel any misunderstandings in our community. He described the process that took over a year to complete. The processing included consultant help in researching all HOA mountain communities in Colorado, including attorney consultation, and several member forums to discuss the why. A PowerPoint presentation to the community was held in member forums, feedback was encouraged and several board meetings reviewed this topic. As part of our CLCC annual meeting, an additional presentation was conducted sharing feedback from forums, research, and details on the transfer fee and rationale. The entire community voted on the transfer fee as part of the annual budget. Owens explained it was not just a few people or the Board that made the decision, rather a thoughtful process engaging the members that helped us meet the financial obligations that we had struggled with at that point in time. 


Help CLCC keep the recycling program going by doing your part to keep the contaminants out! Recycling is on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10 to 4 or until full. If Recycling is full please take your recycling home. CLCC does not have the staff to clean up after you so please do your part with keeping CLCC clean and the wildlife safe.

CLCC owners also donated over 4 boxes of food to the Mountain Family Center. They were so thankful to receive the boxes and especially the items that they requested, such as peanut butter, pasta, water, and baby wipes. You all have made a difference in others’ lives. Thank you!
