The board has approved a change to our Policies, Procedures and Regulations. This change authorizes our security team and/or any member of the Board of Directors, to issue citations for speeding and for children under the age of 16 riding or driving ATVs without wearing a helmet. We are implementing this change immediately, and would appreciate hearing your input before our next board meeting (Wednesday, September 2, 2009 in Heber City).

This change comes in direct response to property owner requests that we do something to address speeding and reckless ATV driving. Please contact any board member to share your input. We prefer to be contacted by email.

Thank you.

Printed below is a copy of a portion of the draft (not official) minutes of the meeting where this change was approved.
