From the Ranch House

Ranch House Holiday Schedule
’Tis the Season, for all who use the Ranch House, and for our team that works there.
Traditionally, the Ranch House is closed on the Christmas and New Year’s Day holidays. This year, those holidays fall on Saturdays. To give our hard-working team time with their families, and to honor their well-deserved holiday time off, the Ranch House will be closed the following days: December 24 and 25; December 31 and January 1, 2022.
We hope you join us in saying thanks to the Ranch House staff for all they do throughout the year, to make RVR the welcoming place it is.

RVR Community Ratifies 2022 Budget
At December's monthly Board 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."
