|Serving Your Community - Golf Course Committee|
The Board of Directors held a special Board meeting on July 30, 2018 to form a new committee in response to the recent closure of the Carmel Mountain Ranch Golf Course. We are happy to inform you that the committee was formed by a unanimous vote! The purpose of the committee is to explore the potential impacts of the closure and options that HOA may have (if any). The committee will be comprised of up to seven (7) members one of which will be a current CMR-RCA Board Member.
The Board needs you!
We are seeking volunteers for the committee that can work within the constraint of the charter. Please note: Your name must be listed on the property deed and your account must be in good standing (e.g. no outstanding assessment balance, fines or open violations) to be eligible to serve. Walters will verify this information prior to all appointments.
