Lee’s Crossing

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 Marietta Square.


As always, I welcome your input and comments.


Happy Thanksgiving,







Around the Neighborhood


Nominations for the Board of Directors



The Board of Directors for the Lee’s Crossing Homes Association consists of seven individuals elected by the members of the Association, six who serve staggered two-year terms and one who serves an annual term as Treasurer.


This February, homeowners will elect three Directors for two-year terms and the Treasurer for a one-year term, with all terms beginning March 1, 2007. The Directors currently occupying these seats are Kevin Brown, Walt Walker, and Steve Young. The current Treasurer is Rob Ottley. Each of these individuals has agreed to serve another term if re-elected.


Individual resident homeowners who are in good standing with the Association and who consent to serve as a Director or Treasurer may submit their name to the nominating committee for inclusion on the ballot. Nominees must be current on all assessments, must pay their 2007 assessments by the close of balloting on February 21, 2007, and must not be subject to any unsatisfied Association fines or liens.


The nominating committee consists of Erroll Eckford, Noel Follrath and Jim Martin.

Nominations must be in writing and must be received by the committee by November 21. Nominations should be mailed to the attention of the nominating committee at P.O. Box 1013, Marietta, GA 30061.

I Recommend……


This is your opportunity to recommend a business to your neighbors.  If you know of someone that does a good job, please send us a SHORT testimonial that we can share.



Co-operative Exterminating has donated pest and termite control services for our clubhouse for a number of years. Co-operative is owned by our good Lee's Crossing neighbors, Yvonne and Rick Caddell.  It has been in business for over 35 years and is located at 717 Washington Avenue in Marietta - 770 427-4292.




Beckie Jordan recently hired Carlos & Dizina to clean her house.  She has been very satisfied.  They do an excellent job and are very reasonably priced.  You may reach them at 770-951-0403. 




Alex McMichael at 590 Briarmeade Drive recently had her gutters cleaned by Leaf Magic Gutters, a company owned and operated by Richard Donlin, a Lee’s Crossing resident.  He did a great job cleaning out the cutters and downspouts, and repaired all the problems he found, including reattaching gutters that were pulling away from the house.  He showed up when he said he would and cleaned up the debris after he left.  His price was excellent and his services come highly recommended (including seamless gutters, leaf guards, roof cleaning & repair, etc.).  Richard can be reached at 404-310-0615 or at www.leafmagicgutters.com.







Have a Happy & Safe Thanksgiving!
