Note from our President:
We had standing room only for the meeting last night (2/12/19) and on behalf of your Board of Directors, I want to say thank you again to everyone who attended. I was once again reminded of what a great place this community is and what an awesome responsibility and honor it is to serve you all. This e-mail is not a thorough accounting of all that transpired at the meeting (that will be the meeting minutes) but will cover some of the highlights.
The results of the election were as follows:
Board of Directors: Aaron Eckerling and Tyler Hogan
Operating President: Tim Phillips
The ballot initiative to change the bylaws to modernize and streamline our accounts payable process through our property management also passed.
Congratulations to the new board members and I’d like to once again thank everyone who stepped up as nominees for these positions as well as offer a big thank you to the outgoing board members, Joanna Cook and Eric Hegwer for their years of service to the neighborhood.
On the topic of the grassy area around the pool, Tim communicated that we are still investigating options to replace the perpetually dying grass and solve the drainage issues along the fence. It was also communicated that the tree that stands behind the lifeguard stand has been evaluated by several arborists and the chances for survival are very slim.
Given the fact that grass alternatives are very expensive and that we may be losing that tree (and the shade that goes with it), it was suggested that the board explore the possibility of creating a master plan for the common area surrounding the pool. An informal show of hands overwhelmingly supported this idea and it looks like we'll be forming a committee to carry this idea forward. If you’re interested in volunteering to help in this effort, please let myself or Tim Phillips know.
We may still schedule a meeting in the next couple of weeks to discuss the proposals currently being solicited because the board may have to make decision on some specific issues (like drainage) before a master plan could be reasonably produced, but I want to reiterate that we are not committed to any immediate course of action.
