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
. 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.
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
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.
How, and Where to submit a request?
you desire to make a change to the exterior, make an addition,
install a fence, lay a sidewalk, etc. to your house, you must
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
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.
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.
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.
