New Business – Phase I Tot-Lot (We need your help!)

One topic up for discussion last night was the future of the Phase 1 tot-lot at the entrance of our neighborhood.  As noted by many board members, the current state of the playground in this lot is inadequate and may be a cause for safety concerns.  As a result of this discussion, the Board has decided to seek additional community feedback and guidance before making any final decisions on the future of this lot.  We would like to form a volunteer committee to explore pricing and options associated with removal, repair, or replacement options.  If you are interested in participating in this committee, please contact us.

Electronic Payments

The Board voted last night to approve electronic payments as an additional option for our residents to pay their annual dues.  Residents are encouraged to continue to make their annual payments via the mailer that gets provided each year.  Online payments is an alternative method that may be used.  Once logged in, members may access our online payment system by clicking hereNote that the merchant that processes the payments has a surcharge associated each transaction.


Thank you,

The Board

Looking for a Skilled Typist

The Communications Committee is looking for a volunteer within our community who is a skilled typist.  One of our goals for 2018 is to provide the by-laws and declarations in a word-searchable format for ease of reference.  Currently, these documents are stored in a PDF file format from scanned documents.  They need to be transcribed into Microsoft Word so we can format them and load them onto our website for the community.

If you are interested in helping with this initiative, please contact the Communications Committee.

Thank you.
