Monthly Newsletter November 2006
From the President…
Just as the leaves change in fall, all organizations must face change. As I announced in the June newsletter, the Board has been in the process of identifying individuals or a company to assume the covenant enforcement function from Walt Walker and Noel Follrath. After review of references and interview of the principal the Board has selected Community One Associates. Community One is owned by Steve Weibel, who has over 20 years experience in the business. The Board’s review of references found other Homeowners Associations to be very satisfied with their services. The assumption of duties by Community One will begin on November 1st and Walt and Noel will assist in the transition and the initial ride thru. Each homeowner will receive a letter from Community One in early November. Community One will report directly to the Board and the Board is committed to maintaining the same level of covenant enforcement.
I would like to thank Walt Walker and Noel Follrath for their commitment and dedication to covenant enforcement over the last several years. Under their watch, the neighborhood has seen a significant improvement in its overall appearance and upkeep. Walt and Noel, thank you!
In conjunction with the new Board of Directors election process, please find in this newsletter an announcement about nominations for the 3 Director and Treasurer positions up for re-election. Nominations are due by November 21st for inclusion in the ballot to be distributed in mid-December.
I would like to thank all the Homeowners who participated in the Forum in early October. I found it to be beneficial for all those involved. There were several issues raised which the Board is reviewing.
In closing, please mark your calendars for a few upcoming
community events including Election Day on Tuesday, November 7th
and the Thanksgiving Day Gobble Jog for MUST Ministries on the
As always, I welcome your input and comments.
