III. Public Comments
Robbie and Heidi Presson came to speak about the deed restrictions on their Mono Ridge condominium development. Three units in this development have deed restrictions and all three are rental restriction. Robbie said he believes that the rental restrictions were an error and should have been for-sale restrictions as he intended to sell them to his constriction crew. Robbie stated he needs to sell one of the units or they are going to be foreclosed upon. One of the units has been on the market for 483 days without sale. Robbie would like to sell his unit and get a new deed restriction. As of today one of the three deed restricted Mono Ridge units is rented the other two have been sold and Mr. and Mrs. Presson hold the notes. Board directed Pam to work with a board sub-committee of Jim Smith and Bill Taylor on a response to the Pressons.
