Although we did offer that service in the past when we were organized as a Home Owners Association (HOA), we are now a community organization and no longer fulfill escrow requests. Please contact your title company.
Since the beginning of Magnesia Falls Cove development in the late 1930s, the neighborhood was built in as many as 14 distinct units by various developers and land owners, each with their own set of CC&R’s. For many decades the volunteer board members of the RMCA operated in good-faith understanding that these units (with the exception of Halgar & Gardess Streets) were included in the HOA.
In 2017, it was discovered after a deep dive into the original CC&R’s that some unit documents were not officially signed-off by the developers, although the RMCA was cited as the governing organization. Finding that technically the RMCA was not a common interest development (CID) as currently defined by State statutes, the RMCA Board recommended a transition into a voluntary organization. This change has resulted in a new mission statement and new Bylaws reflecting our updated goals and status. As always, we will proudly work to build community and address issues that affect our neighborhoods. We are now able to focus our volunteer efforts towards these goals.
The RMCA has been and remains a continuous organization since 1937 when the first homes were built on what was called the Sahara Shelf. As the developments grew, the RMCA was the main organization providing leadership to promote benefits for the community. After nearly 85 years and through thick and thin, the RMCA has held its status as a community organization. The RMCA has an updated mission statement will continue its work to coordinate community events and address policy and development issues that effect our neighborhoods.
If you live within the RMCA map boundaries of Magnesia Falls Cove or White Sun and you own property you are eligible to become a RMCA member and will be able to vote and run for the Board of Directors. Memberships are by household or business, and each household/business gets one vote. Annual donated dues are currently $40 and membership is voluntary. Of course, we always welcome extra donation amounts to assist us in fulfilling our goals.
An Associate Member is someone who has an interest in the activities of the RMCA and wishes to support the Association by donating dues. Property ownership in this case is not required. Associate members do not have voting rights and cannot sit on the board of directors.
We have a newly designed informative Website as well as a timely Instagram feed. Our website, blog and newsletter are information sources on community events, meetings, development and policy issues, volunteer opportunities, local hikes, informal “meet the neighbor” events and more.
If you opt in for our email mailings, you will receive blog posts and newsletters on current issues affecting our neighborhood including In&Out’s legal issues and the ramifications of Porcupine Creeks planned ingress and egress access through our neighborhood.
In the past we’ve hosted a “Meet the Candidate” forum for local elections and hosted a neighborhood wide Yard sale. We are currently collaborating on the first ever Modernism Week Tour 2022 featuring several of Magnesia Falls Cove’s mid-century architectural gems.
We do most of our donor/member communication via email. If you live in Magnesia Falls Cove or White Sun area, sign up here to receive our newsletters. You can find out about hikes, museum visits, walks in the park, birdwatching events and more. We will keep you up to date on local issues and items of interest.
