UPDATED JANUARY 2014!!!!!
PINE MEADOW RANCHES PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION
It has come to the boards’ attention, that illegal dumping of ‘Liquid Waste’ is occurring at PMR. A number of residents and recreational users are not following the proper procedures in retaining permits or disposing of their liquid waste properly. With that being said, I am sending this notice to help the Environment Department, ensure that Pine Meadow Ranch Owners, become in compliance with the regulations. We are mindful that, not everyone is out of compliance, but for those who are, please take heed as this is a very serious matter.
This is of grave importance to our health, and the health of the land. We strive to keep the majority of our properties virgin, but with the illegal dumping of liquid waste and other types of waste, it makes it virtually impossible to do.
The board is requesting that all residents and recreational users make yourselves aware of the regulations as deemed necessary for each of your individual needs, on each of your properties. Everyone has a deadline to become compliant by January 01, 2014. This time frame should be sufficient notice. However, anyone not adhering to the above deadline will be placed on further notice, as the investigator for the New Mexico Environment Department will begin making his rounds at PMR and contacting anyone who is not yet in compliance.
I have included the name and number of the investigator on the back of this notice, along with the consequences for violating the Liquid Waste Regulations. I recommend that everyone take advantage of this opportunity and give him a call to bring yourselves up to speed with the regulations.
Please make PMR a better living area for present and future generations to enjoy.
President, PMR POA
The complete notice can be found on our documents page.
The PMR Facebook page received this note below. The PMR POA board is aware of the problem. It was brought up by another land owner at the February 2013 Annual Meeting.
The PMR POA Board tried to take care of the problem, and we were told: ONLY the owner of the land can file a complaint, and must make their complaint to Cibola County Sheriff's office. If you are having this problem on your lot, PLEASE file a report!
JUNE 15, 2013: Visited our lot this past week. I never figured I'd be someone to buy property just to put a fence around it, but now I'm mighty tempted. Sure looks like someone thinks its okay to help themselves to our wood -- fresh cuts and empty chain oil containers. Not only trespassing and stealing but leaving a mess behind! Shows not respect for people or the land.

Units 3 & 4 of Pine Meadow Ranches were set up about 35 years ago as a place for people to go camping. Some of the land is at 7,500 feet in altitude with some higher and some lower. There are over 1,100 lots in all four units of Pine Meadow Ranches. Some of the lots have grassland, while others have Pinon Pine, Cedar & Ponderosa Pine growing.
Some property owners have built houses and live on their land full time. Property owners must be aware that the one lane dirt or rock roads may be impassable when the heavy rains or snow come. At this time there are approximately 30 families living here full time.
Some owners have drilled private water wells that went 200 feet deep while some went over 800 feet. There also is a community well that property owners can use to haul water for their own use.
Property owners pay assessments each year to help maintain the roads as they are private roads and there is no help from the state or county. When people buy property in Units 3 or 4, they become members of the Pine Meadow Ranches Property Owners Association. The yearly assessments are based on the amount of property they own, and this money is used for road maintenance in Units 3 & 4.
The POA Board can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org .
