Utah's Mountain Country Cabin Getaway
Thunder Ridge HOA is an air park real estate community that regulates itself within the Bandanna HOA. Therefore members are responsible to adhere to both HOA CCR's and Bylaws and to pay dues annually and seperately to each HOA for each lot owned. Each organization has seperate boards and seperate annual meetings. The Airpark CCR's contain rules equal to or tighter than the Bandanna CCR's with additional airpark and aviation specific rules. Generally, if you follow the Airpark CCR's, by default you are adhering to the Bandanna CCR's. Download the above documents for details. Tax parcel information can be found at the Duchesne County Building or here.
Thunder Ridge HOA Use of Dues
Members pay dues on each lot owned. The Airpark HOA governs over airpark lots, the airstrip, airpark common areas, and related facilities. The Airpark HOA dues pay for runway operations, runway operations insurance, garbage services and faciliites, common area structures, and maintainance and snow removal in the common area, the runway, the runway access roads, and the aircraft tie down areas.
Bandanna Ranch HOA Use of Dues
Bandanna Ranch HOA collects annual dues from each Airpark Lot and uses those dues mostly for maintaining all the roads past the main Bandanna gate entrance for lots within both HOA's. Please contact Bandanna HOA first for road maintenance issues or for the combination to the main gate entrance. Please keep the main gate closed.
Airpark HOA Boundary within Bandanna Ranch
This is the Bandanna, Chuckwagon Phase county map overlayed with the Airpark HOA CCR's jurisdictional boundaries. Lots within the airpark boundary pay Airpark HOA and Bandanna HOA annual fees.. The map also describes the responsible HOA for road maintenance in the airpark, airpark area easements, as well as lot legal boundaries.
Thunder Ridge Runway Regulations
The Airpark HOA is granted a runway exclusive easement assignment from Bandanna Ranch providing for the exclusive use of the runway to the Airpark HOA and affiliates. This easement was provided to the Airpark HOA as consideration in part for a settlement agreement between the two HOA's and the Airpark Developer. The easement is described in the original Bandanna Plat filed with Duchesne County and here.
The grant of assignment to the Airpark is perpetual as long as the Airpark maintains insurance for aircraft operations. Accomodation for use of the runway for Bandanna Lot owners NOT within the Airpark is contemplated in the agreement. The Airpark HOA interprets the proper mechanism via an annual dues club membership with the proceeds to be collected by the Airpark HOA. To date no Bandanna lot owners NOT within the airpark have asked to join. Prior to such time that Bandanna lot owners request joining the "club" and thus prompting creation of club membership documents and establishing dues, only Airpark members and guests are permitted to use the runway. The agreement does not require the Airpark HOA to provide facilities in the parking areas via this club membership. Such rights are not contemplated until the Airpark Board makes a determination at the appropriate time. The Airpark HOA is responsible for aircraft operations liability insurance and all upkeep on the runway including periodic slurry seal, weed control, and snow removal.
Thunder Ridge Signage Regulations
All signs must be more than 10' from the edge of all roads, outside the "no build" zone on the runway side, and may not be more than 4' above the lowest ground within 4' radial distance from the sign unless prior approved by the airpark architectural committee. Land only "for sale" signs are NOT permitted until the development has sold all lots. Signs may be exempted from the size and color requirements only for lots with an existing or "under construction" home and the sign is in harmony with the air park. Best practice is to either obtain prior committee approval or conform to height and location requirements and meet the size and color requirements found here. Otherwise the committee has authority to deem at any time that a sign does not meet the requirements .
Thunder Ridge Building Requirements
These are highlights. Members are responsible for reviewing the CCR's for applicability of other regulations.
All structures must be more than 250' minimum distance from the runway centerline. Signage is only allowed within the no build zone on a case by case basis as approved by the architectural committee.
