    Sorry for leading you guys astray. I was wrong, the protective covenant doesn't use the word "rural" anywhere. It just say preserving the community character, which can mean a lot. As far as big houses go, RSF has setbacks which I'm sure these houses adhered to. Big grading happens due to new...

    Here are some suggestions to be heard. Send emails to memberinput@rsfassociation.org . I'd also suggest calling board members directly on any one topic. Maybe if more people inundated them whenever they do something stupid they'd stop doing something stupid. Also, tell your neighbors about the...

    It wouldn't hurt! These are great sentiments. There are many egregious resolutions and regulations the board has passed in the last three years, but the worst one, IMHO, was the Hardie Board prohibition. As an FYI, the Art Jury was against the prohibition, it was solely a board creation. I've...

    I agree that you can interpret "rural character" a lot of different ways. I mean, rural to me means tractors, gravel driveways with broken down pickups, and barns that are falling apart. The RSFA board has heard lots of complaints against the Art Jury and their solution is to pass THEIR fixed...

    I am going to agree with you, disagree with you and give you a different perspective, and maybe some homework. First, can you give me some examples of Art Jury blockades so we can talk specifics? One example you gave is about having two driveways. First, it isn't a blanket prohibition. The Art...

    Yes, that was horrible. No one likes it. The Art Jury had approved it in a different, hidden, location, and they decided to build it by the road. Is the Association doing enforcement proceedings against them? We don't know since the Association doesn't divulge that information. Can we find out...

    I don't believe it is much different from getting anything else approved. The Association is still allowed to impose reasonable restrictions on ADUs to conform to the HOA's covenants. As long as it architecturally matches existing main house styling, keeps out of setbacks, doesn't require...

    Race Internet - conduit install - be careful

    I know what you mean. I have a book in my library that shows the major Internet links in use circa 1995. It has changed a teeny weeny bit since then. ;)

    Race Internet - conduit install - be careful

    The building itself, electrical, AC and power backup (generator) was all designed, built and owned by the RSF Association. And while many aspects of this infrastructure was designed by outside engineers and then by committee decisions(!), the AC system itself was probably most influenced by ...

    Race Internet - conduit install - be careful

    They use standard GPON currently. So that's shared 2.5 Gbps downlink, and shared 1.2 Gbps uplink. I believe (but don't know) that they use 1-32 splitters, but at some point a Race engineer told me they try to keep it at a max of 1:24 split and they will balance out the shared links if they see...

    Race Internet - conduit install - be careful

    While Race does not offer it yet, they are set up for 10G up and down using their Calix equipment, and certainly the fiber network in the ground can support it. Subscribers would need to have 10G switches and network cards. As it is, the few times I've had to download or upload huge files, the...

    To protect the fiber cable from UV light (it is actually waterproof, but the sun could be worse over time) wrap it with this. https://www.amazon.com/Alex-Tech-25ft-Tubing-Conduit/dp/B07TCDTFL2 Sounds like you have a good setup.

    Mail question

    For letters, the post office usually returns the letter back to sender. For packages, they usually try to figure out the PO Box number. My mailing address that I put in for package delivery is physical on line one, then Bx ### on line two. Works for both. In general, you cant tell what delivery...

    BLM protest

    Fine, I deleted my post about the BLM organizer. I’ll leave it up to the parents to figure out who their kids are associating with. Witness, you can edit your post that has the same info should you choose to do so.

    BLM protest

    Shouting from the Trump tent? Balloons? The picture in my article of the Trump tent was taken yesterday. There are no balloons. I also did not hear any shouting coming from it. The shouting, chanting, bull horn yelling all came from across the Inn as part of the BLM protests. Did you play my...
