President’s Message September/October 2023

I hope everyone had a nice summer and I’m sure we’re all looking forward to cooler weather. As a reminder, the pool at the Community Center will close after Labor Day weekend, but the Windmill Pool will still be open.

It’s time for the Annual Election and four candidates are running for four open seats. It’s crucial to cast your vote so that quorum can be met so please review your packets in October and mail or drop your absentee ballots at the office. In person voting will take place at the Annual Meeting at 7:00pm in the cafeteria of the Coyote Trail Elementary School on October 24, 2023.

Since the dues were last increased five years ago, the U.S. has seen a cumulative price increase of about 20%. In order to keep up with inflation and maintain the strong levels of Reserves that CRCA currently has, it will be necessary to increase assessments in the upcoming fiscal year by as much as 12%. Board members are analyzing expenses and we will continue to make sure every association dollar is spent wisely and with the community’s best interest in mind. While no increase is taken lightly, I am confident that Continental Ranch will continue to have low dues for all the great amenities it has to offer residents.
