Homeowners Association Activities


In June, 2021 the HOA completed a successful cooperative program with Eagle County to assist Bellyache Ridge property owners with the cost of removing dead trees from their properties. 


At the December 16, 2020 regular meeting of the HOA, new Bellyache Ridge Design Guidelines were unanimously approved and adopted by the HOA Board.  The new guidelines provide improved clarity for the approval process with fewer forms, reduced deposits and no application fees in keeping with our HOA Protective Covenants.  They supersede all previous guidelines and forms.

In June, 2020 a cooperative program between the Bellyache Ridge HOA and Eagle County was completed that assisted Bellyache Ridge property owners with the cost of removing dead trees on their properties.


In 2019 (and continued in 2020), the HOA Board reduced expenditures for accounting and administration compared to very high levels in 2017 & 2018.

At the HOA meeting in August 2019, the Board decided to not actively manage short-term rentals or to consider changes to HOA guiding documents regarding them.


The HOA Board investigated potential for adopting nine policies and procedures under the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (CCIOA).  Their investigation ended in August 2018 with the decision not to adopt any of the policies and procedures.

In 2018, the HOA Board for the first time ever, began purchasing general liability and director & officer liability insurance.  The Board also ended the practice of forgiving HOA dues to Board Members.

The final edition of the Bellyacher newsletter was released in the fall of 2018.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) granted $15,000 to the Bellyache Ridge subdivision in 2014 to be used for the removal of fire hazardous bio-fuel created by the dead pine trees as a result of the pine beetle.  The grant was not tied to a specific amount of acreage. 


In 2013, the Bellyache Ridge Homeowners Association gained ownership of the three out lots that were owned previously by George Burens.  These lots include the lot at the south end of Bellyache Ridge Road accessing BLM land and the Backcountry at Bellyache as well as the two lots at the end of Big Dipper Road.  

The Backcountry at Bellyache II community contributed $3,000 to the HOA to help cover legal fees associated with the transactions.  The HOA granted access to Backcountry at Bellyache, the cell tower, and the BLM on the upper out lots.

The HOA also agreed to allow the Jouflas Family to install a gate at the end of Big Dipper, located on our out lot.  The Jouflas Family wanted the gate to eliminate illegal hunting on private property.   It was installed in the fall of 2013 by James Jouflas and it has a 12 foot wide lockable gate and a small unlocked gate for hikers to walk through.  The Jouflas family, HOA, water engineers, Holy Cross, Mountain Mushers and BLM continue to have access.
