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.

Porch Remodel Underway
Have you noticed some building material in the Ranch House parking lot? Yes, we are finally starting the porch remodel. Construction will begin Monday, June 8th 2020 and go through most of August 2020. Yellow tape will be put up to isolate the building site for landowner safety. Please do not cross the yellow tape line. I know it will be hard not to do, especially from a curiosity perspective. Building material will be laying around, loose boards, and footer holes are just a few of the hazardous conditions. So please respect the yellow line.

New July 22, 2020 Important Message from Dr. Tom Faber regarding COVID-
The Memorial Day Annual Meeting Has Been Postponed
For the first time since the beginning of TRLA, the Memorial Day Weekend Annual Meeting is being postponed and is tentatively rescheduled to Saturday, September 5th of Labor Day Weekend. This postponement has two major safety reasons: 1) the Covid–19 concerns and restrictions and 2) replacement of the metal roofs on Ranch House, Bath House, Rock Room and outlying buildings along with porch replacement. The Board feels that in four months the country should be reopened for large gatherings again and the construction area will not be an issue.
The Board will post the 2019/2020 End of the Year Report which is routinely presented at the May Annual Meeting on the website the end of May as well communicating it electronically to Landowners that have shared their emails
