RVRMA Board Announces New General Manager
At Wednesday’s regular monthly meeting, the Board unanimously approved the hiring of a new RVR General Manager: Ashley Lynch. Ashley comes to RVR after nearly 13 years in property management and hospitality in the Aspen area. For the past four years, he’s worked for Marriott International, managing the St. Regis Aspen.
Ashley’s first day on the job at RVR will be on January 17, 2022. But if you’d like a chance to meet him before then, we’re holding a meet-and-greet on Sunday, Dec. 19 from 5 pm - 6pm, downstairs by the fireplace in the Ranch House. Click HERE if you’d like to register for this event. Beer and wine will be provided.

RVR Community Ratifies 2022 Budget
At Wednesday’s monthly meeting, the RVR Master Association Board announced the community has formally ratified the 2022 budget.
Following the Board’s unanimous approval of the budget at a December 1 Special Meeting, homeowners had the next step — voting on the budget as part of the ratification process. According to our governing documents, two-thirds of RVR’s 552 property owners (368) would have to vote no to reject the budget; if that didn’t happen, the budget is automatically ratified. Of the 189 homeowners who voted on the budget ratification, 128 were in favor of the budget, while 61 opposed it. That means the budget is ratified, and goes into effect on January 1, 2022.
RVR Property Owners who mail their payment will be receiving notification from our Accounting Department over the next week about what their monthly dues will be, starting in January. Those owners who are on auto-pay will automatically have their payment adjusted. If you want to see what your dues will be next year, click HERE to view the “Dues by Neighborhood Matrix."
