 Why POA Non-Members are Required to Abide by the Covenants

Occasionally, you will hear a POA non-member state that he or she is not required to abide by the Glen-Vista covenants. This is not correct.

The covenants originated not with the POA but with the declaration made by the land developer. This declaration is a legal document on file with the county clerk.
Here is a portion of the declaration for Filing No. 4 of Glen Vista:

Note that the covenants “run with the land”, a legal phrase meaning they apply to all subsequent purchasers. The covenants are part of the deed.
Declarations for all filings are available on the POA website.

So, any resident that claims they are not bound by the Glen Vista covenants simply hasn’t done their homework.
Feel free to pass this along.

 DEA confiscates Rolexes, homes and luxury cars from illegal pot grow:

Federal prosecutors are going after the money side of a southern Colorado marijuana grow enterprise by confiscating cash, homes and luxury cars.
U.S. Attorney John Walsh’s office filed a forfeiture lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court seeking to claim property including four homes, a mobile home, luxury watches, more than 1,000 marijuana plants and nearly 1,000 pieces of marijuana equipment. The value of the forfeitures exceed $1 million, including the $827,000 value of the homes, according to federal court records. The lawsuit stems from a dragnet last year in which 13 men and a woman were charged with federal counts of illegally growing marijuana. According to the recent lawsuit, members of the syndicate bought homes in Cotopaxi and Westcliffe and turned them into illegal grow operations. They shipped marijuana to Florida via UPS. Besides the marijuana plants and equipment, agents from the Southern Colorado Drug Task Force and the Colorado Springs DEA used electric bills as evidence. Marijuana grow operations demand a large amount of electrical power. For example, agents reviewed the electric bills of a home on Thunderbird Drive in Cotopaxi for 10 months before accused drug dealer Victor Garcia bought the home for $160,000 in 2013 and the 10 months after the purchase. The home had used 78 kilowatts from Sangre De Cristo Electric between September 2012 and June 2013.Between May 2014 and July 2015, the home consumed 17,573 kilowatts, the report says.Reference Original Article:
