Call for Members of the Board of Directors
The Association is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that makes major decisions and sets policy for Association operations. Board duties include the selection of service providers, setting standards for architectural design, establishing the budget and maintenance fees, making rules and regulations, approval of contract provisions, enforcing the covenants and restrictions and other tasks as provided in the Association’s governing documents. The Board generally meets five to six times per year and discharges day to day tasks the Association Administration and Administrative Assistants. A vacancy presently exists and the existing Board members may appoint a person to fill unexpired terms. Board members are also elected at each Annual Meeting of Association members which is held in January.
All owners have been sent a notice to waive the fully funded reserve requirement. Although the Association has been building a reserve fund over time, there are not presently sufficient funds to perform all of the capital replacements necessary in a short period of time. Please sign and return the card, or use the form in the Services section of the website, so that there will not be a maintenance fee increase of an order of magnitude that would occur if the requirement is not suspended.
You may provide your input to the Budgeting process through the Administration in advance of the Budget meeting. Your ideas are welcome for suggested expenditure items or priorities that the Board may consider in formulating the 2019 Budget.
Republic Services will pick up Yard Waste on the regular trash collection days through November 30. Please do not place branches, spent flowers or plants in the tree areas or along areas at the perimeter property lines at any time.
The gutters on all buildings will be cleaned of leaves after final leaf drop. Please do not attempt to stand on the roof or perform such work on your own. If you experience a particular problem at your home with clogged gutters and downspouts, which can happen at any time of the year, please contacts us to schedule an additional cleaning.
Rules and Regulations
The Board is in the process of revising the General Rules, Procedures and Regulations for the Association. A draft copy, which is subject to change, is available in the Rules section of the website. Your comments regarding the changes, should be sent to us through the Communications Form located at the bottom of the home page of the website.
