In a perfect world, all Co-op owners would become contributors & participate in maintaining all the Co-op roads of WWR. There are roughly 525 Co-op lot owners for roughly 600 lots, but there has never been more then ~80 Co-op contributors in any given year.
That is an annual road maintenance budget of ~$9,600. Still painfully obvious…The ‘few’ cannot support the ‘many’, & some of our roads are in pretty bad shape.
If each Co-op lot owner became a contributor for $120/yr., we would have a road budget of $63,000! In comparison, the WWROA has ~560 mandatory paying members, at an assessment rate of $195/yr, per lot!
With a similar budget as WWROA, we could ‘fix’ our roads instead of just ‘patching’ them. Historically, the Co-op annual budget restricted roadwork to basically patching mode. Some of our roads need to be built up to eliminate flooding or washing out, other areas need to be widened &/or ditched, & everywhere would benefit with gravel. Some roads need serious work.
The point is, if we want to have safe & accessible roads, & maintain the value of our properties, then we need to work together! It’s easy, just contribute $120 a year & we will do the rest!
