The Annual Meeting is held in September of each year. The Board may call Special Meetings of the Members as needed.
Generally, all meetings are open to Members. Meetings are memorialized in written minutes, which are available to Members in the Member’s Only Section of the website.
The Board of Directors for the Association (the Board) are elected by the Members at the September Annual Meeting for a three-year term. The current Directors of the Board are:
The Board relies primarily on e-communications. The Board will email meeting notices and agendas to Members per the email addresses in the directory of Members. Members are responsible for advising the Board of address changes.
The Retreat CCRs are the principle governing documents controlling both the design of homes and the activities conducted on the sites that affect the appearance of the community. The Board strongly encourages Owners to review the Retreat CCRs, and to contact the Board if there are any questions. A copy of the CCRs is provided on this website. As necessary, the Board will advise an Owner of potential CCR noncompliance and take further corrective action in accordance with the Retreat CCRs. The Board sincerely hopes that every Owner practices a good neighbor policy and promotes the character of our community as envisioned in the Retreat CCRs. A copy of The Retreat Good Neighbor Policy is provided on this website.
The Retreat also has adopted a process for Owners to follow when hosting a large crowd event. This process is meant to ensure minimal inconvenience to neighbors. Owners should refer to The Retreat Large Crowd Policy on this website prior to scheduling a large crowd event.
All lots in the Retreat have been sold by the Developer. From time to time, an existing Owner may list lots or homes for sale. Check area real estate listings or lot for-sale signs for availability.
A lot or home may be owned by an individual, an LLC, or other legal entities as permitted by Utah law. Pursuant to Utah Code Section 10-8-85.10(4), however, the Retreat has banned syndicated joint ownership, as well as time-shares and other fractional ownership of lots or homes. Article 6.22 of the Retreat CCRs provides a description of this ban and the rules applicable to purchasing a lot or home in the Retreat through joint ownership arrangements, LLCs and other legal entities.
Pursuant to Utah Code Section 57-1-46, the Retreat imposes a reinvestment fee on the purchase of a lot or home, payable at closing, equal to the lesser of 0.5% of the purchase price or $5,000. For example, the purchase of a lot for $250,000 would result in a reinvestment fee of $1,250, the purchase of a home for $500,000 would result in a reinvestment fee of $2,500, and the purchase of a home for $1 million or more would result in a fee of $5,000. The Association uses reinvestment fees to supplement its annual dues in funding the Association’s operating expenses.
The Association sets the annual dues for the subsequent calendar year at the September Annual Meeting. Dues are invoiced to members the following January and are payable by the end of February. The annual dues are currently $450.
Every Owner is required to comply with the following documents:
i. The Retreat Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CCRs), as amended;
ii. The Wolf Creek CCRs, as amended; and
iii. The Retreat Architectural Committee (AC) Process, Standards & Guidelines (AC Guidelines).
Copies of these documents are available on this website. An Owner’s failure to follow the rules set forth in these documents may result in the Retreat’s Architectural Committee’s (AC) rejection of a design application and the Association’s imposition of fines on the Owner.
An Owner may engage any qualified architect/designer and builder to construct a new home or home improvement. The Retreat Architectural Committee strongly recommends hiring a licensed architect with experience to guide you through the process and avoid any unforeseen, costly events during construction. A licensed architect is trained to transform your needs and wishes into an architectural expression that also complies with building codes, construction best practices, as well as The Retreat CCRs and AC guidelines. Architects deliver more interesting and creative design work, a better relation with the site, and a superior functional floor plan.
An Improvement subject to the AC design review process is any proposed remodeling or landscaping change that affects the exterior of the home. An Improvement must comply with the CCRs and Retreat AC Guidelines and the Owner must submit the proposed modifications with the AC for review and approval.
The members of the Architectural Committee are elected by the Members at the September Annual Meeting for a three-year term. The current members of the Architectural Committee are:
The AC Guidelines provides a seven step-process, which begins with a Pre-Design Meeting with the AC involving the Owner and the Owner’s architect (Step 1) to discuss the proposed design and identify potential issues under the CCRs and the Retreat AC Guidelines. In connection with this meeting, an AC member will be assigned as the AC point person on the Owner’s project: the point person will function as the conduit on all communications between the AC and the Owner/architect/builder. The AC strongly recommends that this Pre-Design Meeting takes place long before the Owner develops detailed design plans to avoid delays and costly re-do’s because the initial design does not comply with CCRs and the Retreat AC Guidelines. The AC must approve the detailed design plans (Steps 1-5) before the Owner submits the plans to the County for a construction permit. The AC also ensures that construction (Step 6) and landscaping (Step 7) are completed in accordance with such plans and the CCRs.
After the Pre-Design Meeting, the Owner formally kicks off the design review process by submitting a Retreat AC Design Review Application along with the design review fee deposit. A copy of the application form and the amount of the design review fee is provided on this website. The Design Review Application and design review fee deposit should be hand delivered to the AC point person on the Owner’s project or mailed to the Treasurer of the Association at PO Box 903, Eden, UT 84310.
The AC collaborates with an architect consultant to review proposed design plans. The information required to be included in the preliminary submission is provided on the Preliminary Design Submittal Checklist. After approval of the preliminary submission, the information required to be included in the final submission is provided on the Final Design Submittal Checklist. Copy of the checklists are provided on this website. The Owner or his design professional should identify the page(s) in the design plans where the checklist item’s information can be found (“Plan Page Number”). Along with the checklist, the Owner should submit (1) two full-size sets of the design plans and specifications, and (2) a PDF copy of such materials. Please hand deliver the full-size drawings to the AC point person on the Owner’s project and email a PDF copy of the drawings to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Retreat Architectural Committee Process, Standards and Guidelines document (the AC Guidelines) governing the construction of Dwellings in the Retreat has been created to provide direction to owners and their architects and builders; establish thresholds for design quality, specification of materials and colors; and promote sensitivity to each Lot’s natural features and neighboring properties.
