Mountain Lions
Posted on Sep 28th, 2023 Comments (0)
                      
A few lot owners have recorded or seen mountain lions within the area of Legacy Mountain and Skyline Mountain Resort and expressed concern about dangers associated with wild and predatory animals being in close proximity to cabins and play areas. 
 
The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) Biologist assigned to our area (DWR Central Area) is Wes Alexander.  He said the following:
·         Our area is not experiencing a larger-than-normal number of mountain lions this year
·         There have not been any reports of aggressive cats in our area
·         DWR has not had any reported issues with mountain lions in our area
·         Cats will be active when it’s darker, especially during dusk and dawn (when the deer are most active)
·         If anyone experiences an aggressive mountain lion, call and report it to the DWR
·         He wouldn’t hesitate to allow his children to play in the area
·         There has never been a documented fatality of a human by a mountain lion in Utah which has an estimated population of  2,500.
 
Utah DWR has a website specifically about what to do if you encounter a mountain lion:
https://wildlife.utah.gov/news/utah-wildlife-news/1641-what-to-do-if-you-encounter-a-mountain-lion.html
Please keep in mind that there is probably a difference between having a cougar kill in a yard located in the valley and a kill in a mountainous cabin community.
 
According to Wikipedia:
A total of 126 mountain lion attacks, 27 of which were fatal, have been documented in North America in the past 100 years. Fatal cougar attacks are extremely rare and occur much less frequently than fatal snake bites, fatal lightning strikes, or fatal bee stings.  Children are particularly vulnerable. The majority of the child victims were not accompanied by adults.
As with anything else, you have the right to protect yourself, others, or pets who are experiencing an immediate threat.
 
Utah DWR also has a webpage for encountering wildlife in general:

February 3rd Letter Mailed to All Members
Posted on Feb 3rd, 2023 Comments (0)
In a series of meetings during the past year, the board of directors of the Legacy Mountain HOA adopted a schedule of fines and penalties for violating the association's Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&R's) or the accompanying General Rules.  The CC&R's and the accompanying Rules were adopted by a vote of more than two-thirds of the association lot owners in 2017.  Copies of both documents are posted on the HOA's website at legacymountainhoa.com.
 
The purpose of this letter is to inform al lot owners of the various types of violations that are subject to fine or penalty and the associated amount.  For your information, a copy of the schedule of fines and penalties is enclosed.  The document includes information about the various penalties such as interest charged on unpaid assessments.  The board intends to enforce each type of offense.
 
One violation involves initiating construction or major excavation activities (e.g., installing a driveway) without prior approval of the Architectural Review Committee.  The documents section of the HOA's website includes a detailed list summarizing the restrictions regarding such activities.  Violation of some construction restrictions may also be subject to a fine levied by the Sanpete County Planning and Zoning Department.  Any fines assessed by the County would be above and beyond those assessed by the HOA.
 
The CC&R's and the accompanying General Rules also prohibit lot owners who do not have a cabin from parking a camp trailer, mobile home, or motor home on their lot even for a short period of time.  However, lot owners who have an active building permit issued by Sanpete County are allowed to keep a camp trailer, mobile home or motor home on their lot during the active construction time period as long as they comply with the County's restrictions.
 
The fine schedule also includes fines for violating fire restrictions, igniting fireworks, or shooting a firearm within the boundaries fo the Legacy Mountain development.  The purpose of these restrictions is to minimize danger to life and property and to promote the safety of all lot owners and their guests.
 
Another violation refers to the disposal of unauthorized material in garbage dumpsters provided for the use of all lot owners.  Dumpsters sponsored by the HOA are provided for the disposal of household garbage only.  Construction materials, mattresses, furniture or landscape waste, etc. should not be deposited in these community dumpsters.  Instead, such unauthorized materials should be taken to the County landfill located about 10 miles South of Mt. Pleasant on Highway 89.  Owners engaged in active construction projects are expected to maintain a private dumpster on their lot for depositing construction waste materials.  The remaining fines relate to nuisance restrictions which helps us maintain the serenity and beauty of our mountain community.  We respectfully request your cooperation in abiding by the restrictions specified in the 
CC&R's and General Rules.
 
Regards, Legacy Mountain Board of Directors
