Virtually meet your 2024 MA Board candidates! Seven residents submitted applications for two open seats on the Master Association Board. You can view their candidate profiles online by clicking on the button below. The Ken-Caryl Ranch Master Association Board election begins Feb. 12 and runs through March 5 at 5 p.m.

Here’s how the election works:

 Residents and businesses with an email address in our accounting system will receive an email from kcr@ivotehoa.com on Feb. 12 with voting instructions.

  • Those residents and businesses without an email in the system will receive a postcard on or after Feb. 12.
  • There is one ballot per household, or business. If you own multiple properties, or are a business, you will only vote once, but your vote will be weighted.
  • The election will be done online, but paper ballots will be available at the Ranch House Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by appointment, for those residents who do not wish to vote online. You will need a photo ID to vote with a paper ballot. *Please note the Ranch House is closed to the public on Fridays.

There are two open positions for the Board, so you may vote for up to two candidates. Questions about the election? Contact Brian Yowell at briany@kcranch.org.

MASTER ASSOCIATION BOARD

The Ken-Caryl Ranch Master Association (KCRMA) is a group of property owners bound together by a Master Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for the purpose of operating and maintaining Association-owned property and preserving community standards. Monthly dues support covenant and architectural control, Master Association-owned open space, trash removal/recycling, the Equestrian Center and the bi-weekly newspaper, Life at Ken Caryl.

What is the Ken-Caryl Ranch Master Association (KCRMA)?

The care of the recreational amenities, built by the developers of the Ranch, have been turned over – along with common areas and open space – to the Ken-Caryl Ranch Master Association for enjoyment by the Ranch community. After 1990, Ken-Caryl Ranch became a resident-controlled community, responsible for over 4,800 acres of open space, architectural and covenant control, refuse removal and recycling, Equestrian Center, and a bi-weekly newspaper, Life at Ken-Caryl.

All property owners, both commercial and residential, are automatic members of the Association. As such, they pay monthly dues and observe architectural controls and covenants. In return, members may enjoy all Master Association facilities, programs and services and exercise voting privileges at the Annual Meeting, electing a Board of Directors. Members of neighborhoods with sub associations might pay an additional assessment to a sub association organization that owns and maintains property in particular neighborhoods, much in the same way the Master Association does for the overall Ranch.

The Master Association provides architectural guidance – in order to maintain the continuity of aesthetic building quality on the Ranch. The Master Association also disseminates information regarding the issues and events around the community through the bi-weekly newspaper, Life at Ken-Caryl.

METROPOLITAN DISTRICT BOARD

The Ken-Caryl Ranch Metropolitan District (KCRMD) is a governmental entity that provides all the maintenance in the parks, greenbelts and facilities. The District also provides recreational activities for the enjoyment of the Ranch community. Revenue needed to operate the Ken-Caryl Ranch Metropolitan District is generated through property taxes assessed to both residential and commercial properties located on the Ken-Caryl Ranch and by program fees.

What is the Ken-Caryl Ranch Metropolitan District (KCRMD)?

The Ken-Caryl Ranch Metropolitan District is organized as a Special District under Title 32 of the Constitution of the State of Colorado. This system of local government combines the political leadership of elected officials (in the form of a five-member Board of Directors) with the managerial experience of a professional manager and staff. The plan establishes a representative system where all power is concentrated in the elected Board as a whole, and a professionally-trained manager hired by the Board to oversee delivery of the District’s services. The District Manager supervises implementation of policy and procedure as directed by the Board through coordination and supervision of operations in all District departments. The District Manager advises the Board on all matters relating to the planning, development and operating status of District departments. The District Manager is responsible for:

  • implementing the policies adopted by the Board of Directors,
  • making recommendations to the Board of Directors,
  • carrying out the operations of the District,
  • coordinating and supervising the work of all District departments,
  • preparing the annual operating budget for the District.
