Ken & Tammy,
Thank you for your questions. Dues have not increased in more than 20 year. The Board of Directors removed the $50 discount nearly 10 year ago. the Legal Assessment was approved by the membership on March 6th, 2021 through a mailed out ballot and online voting for a one-year extension. The voting procedure and accounting of all votes cast was handled by our accounting firm, Fieldstone Management. The results were as follows;
1,400 possible votes to be cast
1,098 actual votes cast, 78.43%
913 “Yes” votes, 84%
185 “No” votes, 16%
The actual votes cast in this ballot measure were the most in Association history.
The Association is hopeful that discussions will start soon with the Stills Family Trust regarding long-range plans for the Marina. The Association has collected nearly $800,000 which is held in money market accounts for this project. If you have further questions I would encourage you to attend the next Board of Directors meeting (Virtual due to COVID) on May 2nd, starting at 9:00 a.m.
Randy Panek, President TRLA
Three Rivers needs to increase our involvement in the Fire District. Any person registered to vote in the fire district and any person who owns property in the fire district is eligible to serve on the Fire District Board. Step up. Time is running out.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO ONLY DUMP STUMPS, NOT STUMPS WITH TREE TRUNKS IN THE STUMP AREA. ALSO REMEMBER NOT TO BRING WHOLE TREES TO THE PIT. TRIMMINGS ONLY. KEEP TREE TRUNKS AND/OR BOLTS ON YOUR PROPERTY. IF YOU WISH TO DONATE THEM TO THOSE IN NEED OF FIRE WOOD PLEASE LET THE OFFICE KNOW AND WE WILL MAKE ARRANGEMENTS.
WE WILL BE WATCHING CLOSELY FOR VIOLATORS UNTIL THE PIT CLOSES.

Attached reduced file.
Thank you for questions. We hope to have all the documents loaded shortly. The TR’s website is limited on the size of the files that can be loaded. so we are reducing them for posting.
As for settlement discussions, that information is confidential until a settlement has been reached. I hope you understand.
The Big Canyon/Firebreak Golf Course will be assessed this fall. Thank you for your question.
A REMINDER TO ALL PROPERTY OWNERS AND GUESTS…Attachments:
Please see the information posted under Announcements and the link to ODFW

Just returned from vacation and will provide a detailed report of all litigation right after Christmas. The latest filings is Jefferson County Circuit Court can be found on the 3R’s website, SAV-R-COMMUNITY.
Here is a preview of a complete update of all current litigation.
In March 2017, the membership approved by a 90% affirmative vote the Legal Assessment Fund. This assessment approval has allowed the Association to file an action in Jefferson County Circuit Court to seek protection of our boundaries, roads and amenities and to preserve the character of Three Rivers as a private gated community. Further, your assessment approval sent a clear message to challengers DeMonte and Anderson that the members of this community stand together in protecting Three Rivers as approved and developed over the last 47 years with your assessments and through your efforts. The legal action continues after unsuccessful mediation with DeMonte, Anderson and the County.
The amended complaint depicts the correct location of the 1896 EH Sparks Road dedication (see attached photo). The Sparks Road although dedicated, was not improved and in 1900, it was extinguished by operation of law. This extinguishment fact is supported by Harry Heising’s Homestead Deed granted by the United States Land Office in 1942. The Heising homestead land is now Three Rivers land. The Homestead Deed does not except any public road. No one challenged Heising’s Homestead deed with the six-year challenged period. The Heising deed gave absolute clear title without a public road. Beginning in 1970, Jefferson County began making land use and permitting decisions, which binds the County, based on Three Rivers having no public road burden and no public access.
On December 18, 2017, Judge Hillman allowed Association to amend its complaint based on newly discovered facts and new legal theories. Association has filed its amended complaint and filed a motion for summary judgment arguing that Association should prevail as a matter of law on its action to have the court declare that Three Rivers is not burdened by any public road, and that DeMonte, Anderson and the public has no right of entry into Three Rivers. We anticipate that a hearing on Association’s motion for summary judgment will be set in March 2018 to give defendants time to file a response and for Association time to file a reply.
HAVE A SAFE AND WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS!Attachments:
I agree with Phil. They should also be compiled (FAQ) with back up facts and documentation to support the question, something other than a simple “yes”.
