This website is made possible through the research and hard work of Beka Panitzke. Beka found the best site for our needs and then designed the website for us. We will be adding additional features to it in the future, but right now it's awesome. It will help communicate what's going on in the community and put a lot of the rumors to rest.

If you have photos you would like to share, comments or suggestions, please contact Beka through the contact page on this website.

The Board is Cutting all Trees Within 21 Feet of the Road

One of the volunteer road crew members removed dead trees and brush from the Charbonneau Road culvert area. THANKS JIM!! This was done to prevent debris from clogging up the culverts and causing a potential overflow onto the road.

Somehow or another, this turned into a rumor that the Board was cutting everything back, 21 feet from the road.

This is not true. However, we will be cutting back brush and trees that are in the way of road work or limit visability.

The Campground on Ar‚Äčrow Drive

Over the years the rumor mill has asserted that a Landowner on Arrow Drive has been operating a campground and renting out campsites and providing other entertainment for campers (Jungle Jim's, rope swings, etc.) The rumor went so far that someone actually registered the campground on Google Search in order to add credibility to the rumor.

To get to the bottom of this, Board Members & representatives toured the Landowner's property (with the Landowners permission) to see the campground. Guess what? There is no campground and there has never been a campground at this location.

The Board will be aggressively enforcing the Corporations covenants. However, we will also make sure that we are factually correct when making decisions. In short, we will either prove rumors right, or prove them wrong.

Email from Mark Pieloch 

I am sending you this email to officially notify the Missouri River & Eagle Canyon Ranches Landowners Corporation

of my purchase of 28 lots and the "Developer's Rights" from Deanna Lane/Montana Recreational Properties.

The effective date for this sale was March 31, 2022.

I have waited to ensure all deeds have been recorded prior to making this official announcement.

I am requesting your assistance or the accounting firm's assistance to get the most up-to-date mailing list of all LOC landowners,

so that I can send them this letter.

I would also like to have this document posted on the MR & ECR LOC website.

We will also be posting this notice at the entry to the LOC on both Rocky Road and Eagle Canyon Road,

so that other landowners will be aware of this change.

As the new Developer I look forward to working with the LOC Board to make this a nicer place to live.

Best regards,

Mark Pieloch
