Living With Large Predators in New Mexico

Communiqué from New Mexico Department of Game and Fish 8/2/2020

Subject: Timberlake Subdivision

We have met with the association before on bears, cougars and other information at your community center. It has come to our attention recently that occupants have had trouble with a bear in bird feeders. Officer Lackey will be dealing with it as it pops up. We need help with getting the word out about bear concerns. Mostly situations with bears eating food set out for birds, squirrels, deer etc. Can you please inform the occupants that we try are hardest to not move bears for getting into bird feeders. We have even cited individuals that continue to set out bird seed during bear conflicts. We can not move a bear in the State of New Mexico to suitable habitat that doesn't already have bears. This creates a higher mortality rate for the bears, meaning either the bear we move or the bears that are already there will be pushed to lesser quality habitat through territorial behavior, hit on highways or killed by other bears. "A fed bear is a dead bear" is a cliche statement you've probably heard but its very true when it comes to the bear's future. There is no reason biologically to feed birds this time of year and it only leads to bears escalating bad behavior. I know its fun to see different bird species utilizing the feeder but its not worth it when it attracts bears. Please help us spread the word to your association, to at least temporarily remove any bird seed, hummingbird feeders etc. as they are creating a nuisance by attracting bears and acclimating them to the neighborhood in a negative way. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at the number below.

Living with Poisonous/Non-Poisonous Reptiles in New Mexico

The Timberlake Volunteer Fire Department is asking for your cooperation in not using the cut across through their parking lot to Wolf Road from the mailboxes. This has become a major safety issue for fire equipment/personnel and includes all vehicles such as cars, trucks, ATVs and UTVs.


ALWAYS call 911 first with any emergency and give the operator the County you live in and then Timberlake subdivision north of Ramah, NM.  We are in District 55 for fire emergencies. If you see smoke call 911 and report its location.


The Burn Pile is now open.


Timberlake Landowners

The Fire Department wants to inform the community of some changes within the department.

Andy Wilson will be taking a temporary break from the fire department, as he has been serving as fire chief for the last 30 years. We are grateful for his service and dedication to the community.  Effective immediately, stepping into the leadership position will be the existing officers of the department, Bill Sanders, Julie Farrell, Wade Aubuchon and Linda Wise. The function of the Fire Department will remain the same.

Thank you,

Timberlake Fire Department



The Board would like to see more feedback from Timberlake landowners who have not yet completed the Google survey.  It doesn’t take more than a few minutes and additional new landowner emails have been added.  Please use the link below.

Quorum for May 25, 2024 Annual Meeting

Attached to this email is a Quorum Proxy form that is needed for the TRLA Annual Mtg on May 25th as well as the Special Meeting to be held in the afternoon.  Our HOA Bylaws require there be 20% of Members in Good Standing (physically present or by proxy) to conduct business and voting on May 25th.    We were unable to meet this standard at the last Annual mtg in 2023 so we are starting early.  Why is this so important this year?

You will be able to actually vote on removing an obsolete section of the CC&Rs.  It takes 51% of landowners to do this at a Special Meeting with a 20% Quorum of Members in Good Standing.  (Article II Section B of the Bylaws) The Board is proposing removal of Article IV Building Restrictions Section 9 (Tanks and Receptacles).  This is spoken of in the Board Meeting minutes September 2023 (Arch/Main Report/CCR Violations and New Business) trnews.info website under BUSINESS

Security Camera System

We are having a delay in releasing a linkage for landowners to view the area and weather conditions around the Ranch House Commons.  There was some internal software that we were unaware of and it is preventing what we originally planned.  A fix is in process.  In the meantime, we encourage landowners to read the Security Camera Policy that is on the trnews.info website under Rules and Regulations.

Alert: If you live in Cibola county and you call 911 it will go to Grants and then the call may not happen or it will get dropped. You have to call McKinley county dispatch as the only way you will get Timberlake fire department paged out. 505-722-2002.  (12/7/2023)

Wildfire Preparedness Is Year-Round - Don’t Depend On Luck

The first 0 to 5 feet around the structure, known as the immediate zone or noncombustible zone, has the greatest impact on fire risk.

Clean up dead vegetation from last season that gets trapped against your house, under your deck, and against fences. Keep any plants in the 5-foot zone irrigated and pruned.

Replace mulch from around the base of your home with a non-flammable material such as river rock or pea gravel.

Don’t store firewood, gas cans, lawn mowers, cardboard or other combustible materials next to your home. Move these items at least 5 feet away from the outside walls of the house.
