New Resident Presentation

Welcome to Ken-Caryl Ranch! Moving day is filled with fun, excitement, chaos, and plenty of stress. There are so many things to manage when moving in. With so much going on, the last thing one is thinking about is the rules of the HOA. Whether buying or renting all residents of Ken-Caryl Ranch have some neighborhood rules to follow on a regular basis and some of them start on day one. Listed below are a New Resident Presentation and a list of helpful information for new residents.

A resident of Ken-Caryl Ranch may park a boat, camper, or RV in his driveway for two nonconsecutive days during a seven-day period. These two days are intended for the loading and unloading of the vehicle. Parking of any type of vehicles, boats, trailers, and campers on landscape and/or lawn portions of the yard, or any other pervious surface is prohibited. Parking areas must be surfaced with asphalt or concrete. Extension or expansion of driveways for additional parking is not permitted. All commercial and business vehicles shall be kept at all times in an enclosed structure or be appropriately screened from view. Nothing in these rules prohibits the parking of a vendor or contractor vehicle at a residence during reasonable work hours for the purpose of performing services for an owner.


What neighborhood are you in? Ken-Caryl Ranch has several different neighborhoods and many are managed by the Master Association directly. Some neighborhoods (North Ranch, Enclave, Mountain Gate I, II, and III, Manor Ridge, Sunset Ridge, and The Settlement) have their own separate management company and some subassociations have an additional set of guidelines to follow as well. See Subassociations for more information about your neighborhood.


Furniture, yard equipment, discarded appliances, etc., must be stored out of sight.


Play equipment such as nets, portable basketball goals, bikes, toys, etc. must be stored properly when not in use. Portable basketball goals and tetherball poles must be stored at least halfway up the driveway standing up, out of the public right of way, and off the public street. Bikes, toys, nets, slacklines need to be put away out of sight when not in use. For nets and slacklines especially, please consider our abundant wildlife and the danger imposed on them with these types of items.


There are fencing guidelines on the website for the Valley, and the subassociations have their own sets of guidelines. There are many things to consider carefully when installing a fence, so please check in if you have questions about your fence. Installing a non-compliant fence without approval or installing incorrectly or encroaching on open space could end up being a very costly resolution, and we wish to avoid that as much as you do. See Fence Guidelines for more information.


All exterior home improvements require Architectural Committee approval. If you bought a property that needs some attention inside and out, the Property Improvements page is your resource for rules, information, and forms to submit for your project. See neighborhoods and subassociations for the right contact for your neighborhood.
