A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
It’s been about a month since we took over the management of the HOA from the developer and the new board has been hard at work organizing and learning the ropes. We truly have a great neighborhood and we hope to be doing great things with it in time. However, in the short-term, the board’s first priority is to manage the HOA’s current budget shortfall which was inherited from the developer. Since this budget shortfall is projected to be a problem only through the 2010 pool season, we will be soliciting volunteers to eliminate labor costs for lawn maintenance, landscaping and pool cleaning. Simultaneously, we will be actively pursuing delinquent homeowners for past due HOA fees. If successful, these two actions should take care of current cash flow problems and position us for a very good year in 2011. Every homeowner has a part to play in making this neighborhood great.
Key to maintaining a great neighborhood will be our ability to communicate neighborhood business. While necessary at times, print newsletters are costly and time consuming. A portion of the neighborhood has already subscribed to neighborhood email newsgroup and I would like encourage everyone to utilize this resource. To sign up, send an email to contact. Additionally, a private neighborhood website will be created soon that will contain neighborhood business, news and events. If you would like to provide input on what features this website should have, please contact Tammy Hardin. If, in the meantime, you have any questions or concerns about the neighborhood, please contact myself or one of the board representatives listed in this newsletter.
To become a volunteer for periodic lawn care, landscaping or pool cleaning for the 2010 pool season, please contact Ed Moore at 850-4967 or by email . Special thanks goes to Chad Tarwater, Ken Glass and the whole Lowry family for their previous volunteer work.
HOA BOARD ELECTIONS
Did you know that the current HOA board is only a transitional board and serves only until January 2011? That means that elections are right around the corner and will occur on October 16th. Consider who you would like to nominate to serve or even serving yourself. To be part of the nominating committee, contact Cathy Glass at email.
JOIN OR HEAD A COMMITTEE
We are looking for residents to head up and recruit members for several committees. To be a part of the Social Committee to organize events throughout the year (a grill out or holiday event), contact Angela Lowry at email. To be a part of the nominating committee for the October elections, contact Cathy Glass at email.
Please bring your tools and help for our first scheduled workday on August 28, from 9:00am–Noon. The appearance of our front entrance reflects on us all and we want to present a beautiful front to our community. For more information contact Ed Moore at 850-4967 or at email. Please join us!
