Dear TRLA landowners:

The Wildfire Mitigation project is moving forward rapidly, with roadside clearing of ladder fuels already underway.

The next phase is to find resources to start reducing our huge wildfire fuel loads and improve the health of the forest throughout the 7000 acre Ranch. Major sources of potential funds are Federally-funded Healthy Forest cost-sharing programs administered by the State. A requirement to access these and other funds is the development of an Association-wide Management Plan for TRLA. This plan will address factors affecting forest health such as timber, vegetation, undergrowth, animal species, water, bark beetles and other potential causes of unhealthy forests. This plan must be submitted to the State by September for consideration of current funds. It requires a visual survey of the entire Ranch, including a walk-through  of approximately 500 lots, by a State-contracted Forester. The Plan will be prepared by the Forester, is comprehensive and will be several hundred pages. The Association cost of approximately $3500 has been approved by the Board.

Time is of the essence as the deadline for submission is early September. The Forester, Tom Marks, will begin his survey the week of August 5th. A major part of the survey is the lot walk-through.  He will be accompanied by members of the Mitigation Sub-committee and the Board. We are asking all landowners to cooperate with this crucial survey. If you do not want Mr. Marks to go onto your lot please contact Mary Jo Wallen directly at (505) 269-5022 by voice or text, or by email at
mrsdw19dw@aol.com. If there is a locked gate or unrestrained dog the lot will not be entered.

It will take all of us working together to improve our forest health and protect Timberlake from a fate such as that of Paradise CA. All of us will benefit from reducing the high risk of fire and/or beetle infestation we currently face.

Sincerely,TRLA Wildfire Mitigation Committee.

Tom Marks, can be identified with an orange vest and a white hard hat.  If you see him on the road and and want to ask him questions about forest health, etc., he will be glad to talk to you.  I have also given him a TRLA window sticker to use while he is working out here.


Final Update:  Second Amended and Restated Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions PASS

The final tally of votes:   YES  424 (57%)   NO  56 (7.5%)     UNABLE TO TALLY   5

The remaining steps are: (1) formatting of the final document into a final form, (2) two certification pages signed by the members of the Board of Directors and notarized, and (3) the newly adopted Declaration with certification page is recorded in McKinley and Cibola County.
