Important Announcements - Updated 9/7/2020



We have been having some disturbing things happening in Timberlake recently.  We would appreciate your vigilance in watching out for your neighbors.  If you see suspicious vehicles/persons, please try to get as much information as you can, ie: description/color of vehicle/license plate number.  Please provide this information to either Mary Jo Wallen at 783-4207 or Nancy Wills at 783-2457.  Also, it is very important that you report burglaries and vandalism to either McKinley County (505-722-7205) or Cibola (505-287-9476)  Sheriff’s Departments so they can determine if there are any patterns for this negative activity.  

1. A house in the front part of the development (Cibola) was broken into by breaking a large window and jimmied a door.

2. Another house was supposedly broken into in the middle and edge of the development next to National Forest (McKinley) , but we have not been able to verify with a police report.

3. Several reports have been coming in where they think houses are being “cased” in several areas of the development.

4. Yesterday evening a landowner left their lime green Ocean kayak hidden in the weeds (Common land) down by the old boat dock area at the lake around 6 p.m.  When they went back this morning to use their kayak, it was gone.  It was reported that at least 5 ATV’s and 2 SUV’s were in the area after 6 p.m. and a pickup truck was seen going in and out of the lake area after dark…presumably to steal the kayak.  Since only landowners are supposed to have a lake gate key, it is incredibly sad to imagine that a fellow landowner stole property.

5. Complaints are received weekly about kids riding ATV’s extremely fast down all the roads and no helmets are worn.  So far, no serious injuries have been reported, but do you want your child to be the first?

6. Another landowner reported that slash has been thrown into their yard (lives right off Timberlake).  All landowners are asked to take their slash to the burn pile.   

7. A dark colored vehicle with rear spoiler has been seen and heard racing Timberlake Road coming in and out of the development.  If there is a landowner who owns this type of a vehicle, would you please let us know so we do not report it as a “suspicious vehicle”.

There will be no questions asked if the lime green kayak is returned. Please call Mary Jo at 783-4207 and she can contact the owner.

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.

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.

The Annual Labor Day Social Event Has Been Cancelled

Unfortunately, the Annual Labor Day Social Event is being cancelled due mainly to the continued status of COVID-19 and also the porch remodel is not yet completed.  Hopefully, we can get this COVID menace behind us and the porch will be completed, so we can enjoy the summer of 2021.  I hope and pray you stay safe and well during these trying times.
