Why Join Indian Mountain Property Owners Association?
Updated May 21, 2015
 
In 2015, Membership in the Indian Mountain Property Owners Association (IMPOA) grew to more than 700 property owners. While IMPOA is a voluntary membership organization, the $45 annual dues and the donations from property owners help support the property investments and quality of life for all of us in Indian Mountain.

IMPOA funds and executes important work, including efforts to secure Indian Mountain’s water augmentation plan. The 2013 to 2015 legal expenses connected with the lawsuit filed by Indian Mountain Corp (IMC) against the Indian Mountain Metropolitan District (our District) were jointly funded by IMPOA and IMMD. IMPOA also pays for maintenance and fees for the IMPOA website, wildfire mitigation projects (including applications for and administration of grants), all IM street signs in the subdivision and an annual Dumpster Day. IMPOA also collaborates with IMMD for community activities such as the newsletters, picnics and meetings. Additionally, IMPOA provides amenities in the community, such as cattle fencing and the disk golf course and playground equipment at Indian Mountain Park. The IMPOA board also maintains Indian Mountain’s recognition as a Firewise Community by the US Forest Service and the National Fire Protection Association.

IMPOA Facts:
  1. PROPERTY OWNER REPRESENTATION—IMPOA works for property owners and their properties whereas IMMD (the Metropolitan District) has responsibility for the water, recreation and park facilities within Indian Mountain. The two organizations work together for the overall good of the neighborhood, but IMPOA represents owners to the rest of the world.
  2. VOTING—Membership is voluntary, but only “Members in Good Standing” (current paid memberships) get their votes counted as part of the IMPOA governing actions (director elections, proposals, actions, etc.).
  3. COMMUNICATION—Your membership with all contact information included (e-mail, phone number, USPS mail) ensures that you receive all IMPOA and IMMD communications. These communications are sent out only for important reasons, such as the 2015 Court case that determined Water Augmentation rights. E-mail addresses receive the fastest communication.
  4. COVENANTS—A common misunderstanding exists that Covenants are not applicable if one is not a member of IMPOA. The truth is, Covenants are applicable to all properties in Indian Mountain, regardless of their owner’s membership status in IMPOA. The Covenants were put in place by the developers when IM was created and are applicable to and enforceable on all property owners. Although IMPOA has no unique standing under the Covenants, it assists property owners in resolving issues of noncompliance with the Covenants and the County’s Land Use Regulations.
  5. IMPOA Board Members’ service is voluntary…they are not compensated.
