Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                       June 2008




From the President:


Dear Residents,


In the last newsletter, we noted that three Lee’s Crossing residents had been chosen as Teacher of the Year at their respective schools in the Marietta City School System.  At the citywide awards banquet on May 27, Kathy Woods of Lee’s Crossing was chosen the system wide Teacher of the Year.  Congratulations!


The Memorial Day festivities in the neighborhood were again a great success.  The weather was great and the pool was filled with swimmers, as the water did not seem as cold as in the past.


Phil Wooten worked his magic in slow cooking copious quantities of pork butt for a crowd estimated at 400+.  Phil’s labor of love started at 10 p.m. Friday evening and did not conclude until late Saturday.  Assisting Phil were Joe Garrett, Steve Young, Kevin Brown, Bill Drake, Tom & Tommy Prosser, Jim Martin, Greg Padgett and Dave Krier.


The serving and cleanup team was led by Betty Foley and included Sandy and Bill Wilson, Tom and Judy Prosser, Dianne and Terry Ryan, Walt Dean, Gordon Pfeiffer and Tucker and Don McQueen.


Special thanks go to Janet Duncan, Social Chair, and Kevin Brown, Director over social activities.


When you see any of these volunteers, please give them a heart felt thanks.


We will look forward to a great summer season.

ACC Change Requests and Approvals


A change request must be made when a homeowner wishes to make an alteration or improvement to their property.  Examples are repainting, building a fence, significant landscape changes, etc.  The vast majority of change requests are approved either by the property manager and/or ACC Chairperson.


1.      A change request is submitted in writing on our standard form to CommunityOne.  The form can be obtained from CommunityOne.

2.      If the change request is approved, the homeowner is notified in writing by mail and the process ends.  If the change request is generally acceptable, but the ACC chairperson feels there are minor details to work out, he will contact the homeowner and attempt to do so.

3.      If the change request is not approved, the homeowner is notified in writing.

4.      If a change requested is not approved, a homeowner may appeal in writing to CommunityOne.   CommunityOne will notify the ACC chairperson, who arranges a meeting time with the homeowner and the other Board members
