2023 Annual General Meeting

The 2023 CCA Annual General Meeting will take place at the Carson Fire Station on July 15, starting at 10 am. The main item on the Agenda will be voting for members of the CCA Board for the next two year term. While anyone is welcome to attend the meeting, participation and voting is legally restricted to Carson residents who reside within the CCA’s boundaries, as defined in our bylaws (see note below). The CCA will provide pizza, hot from the Carson Cafe, at the end of the meeting.

Carson Community Association is a non-profit organization, and its work and geographic reach are defined by its Bylaws. The CCA Bylaws define Carson as being in Taos County, and with the boundaries as registered with Taos County Courthouse. These use the Carson Post Office as their center, extending three miles north, and four miles south, and as far east as the Rio Grande. The western boundary is rather less clear, west to the section line parallel to Highway 285, including property owned (in 1999) by the Wiltons which extends west of 285. The Drakes’ property is specifically excluded. Below is an approximate map of the coverage area (demarcated by a red boundary). If you own property for six months within that area, or you have lived in the specified area for six months, you are a member of the CCA.

This means that areas such as Three Peaks are not within the CCA area. CCA is stretched to attend to the issues that occur within its defined area, and we would hope that other communities might think about forming their own organizations to address their particular needs which likely differ to those of the Carson area.

Members of other communities do and are welcome to use programs initiated or run by CCA, including the Carson Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department, which has its own service area clearly defined, and the Carson Food Bank, which serves the communities of Carson, Ojo Caliente, Star, Three Peaks, Two Peaks. Members of other communities regularly attend CCA organized events.
