Committees & Board of Directors

The Homeowners Association consists of five voting members on the board for three year terms. Terms are staggered so that not all board members will change in one year. The officers are:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • Members-at-large
The board meets monthly to discuss business and address any concerns or problems brought to its attention. Any urgent issues that cannot wait until an "Open" meeting can be e-mailed before the first Monday of the month to: the President. The board also hosts the annual Homeowners Association "Town Hall Style" meeting during the fall where the annual report is given to the association, new board members are elected, committee sign-ups are encouraged and issues brought forth from the floor. While the board provides the direction for the community it's really the committees that get the work accomplished. Without these dedicated and selfless people your neighborhood would not function and your property value would drop. We are always looking for volunteers to help in the work of the community.
  

Meetings

The annual homeowners association meeting "Town Hall Style" is held once a year. It is extremely important that you make every effort to be there. Without your participation there is a lot of business the HOA simply cannot accomplish. If you cannot attend, the notice for the meeting will contain a proxy vote for you to give to someone to vote on your behalf.

HOA meetings are more informal and meet monthly except for the Architectural Review Committee (ARC) which meets when needed. These meetings allow the committee members to surface questions, concerns, and other issues so that the solutions can be accomplished. Homeowners are invited to attend for any clarification, or to state an opinion. Open and unresolved items are than attended to and resolved as soon as possible. New meetings will be announced in the newsletter.

Architectural Review Committee

Why, How, and Where to submit a request?

Should you desire to make a change to the exterior, make an addition, install a fence, lay a sidewalk, etc. to your house, you must Submit a request to the ARC for approval. This approval ensures that you and your neighbors have followed the covenants and restrictions properly and that the general appearance of the community is maintained for property value. Your request must include a description of the modification, materials to be used, drawing (sketch) of where it will be placed,with dimensions pf project showing setbacks. To help you, the committee has developed a form for you to use ARC Form.

After you have submitted your request, the ARC has 30 days from the date of receipt to approve or deny the request. A member of the ARC Board will come to your house to check on location and other things. Prior to a denial the ARC will contact you to try and reach an agreement that both of you can support. Once the decision has been made, the ARC will provide you with a written determination of your request.

If your request was approved, you now have one (1) year to begin the project, and 90 days to complete the project. Should you not be able to complete your project during this time, consult the ARC Chairperson for an extension to complete. If you have not started the project, you will have to re-apply.

Should you fail to wait for ARC approval and begin your project, and the project is then denied, you will be given the opportunity to correct the problem. If you fail to do so, the ARC may take legal action. You must keep in mind that we all signed a contract when we purchased our houses agreeing to abide by the covenants and restrictions.
