We will change the format of our meeting, after business is discussed, members wishing to address the board will need to come forward and speak in the microphone.
We had a meeting with management on September 27th to discuss items that were scheduled for major changes during the summer. Three major items of concern were: roadways, gates, new pickle ball court/bash area. Bash area project was delayed due to weather, now underway, along with landscaping. The gates have been ongoing, seem to be working, some glitches are being addressed. The gate code will be changed in January. Roadways have not been scheduled, presently no definitive answers. A roadway engineer was invited by HOA. After observations, a letter was written to HTA strongly suggesting they own up to the fiduciary responsibility for roadway repair & maintenance. We are waiting for a reply. Rent increase went up to 2.9 percent.
Vice President’s report: Explained the inverted crown road structure, and how seams separate with age. When this particular structure is used, roads need to be sealed every three years; our roads have never been sealed. The speed bump has been a concern to some, however, since it has been put into place the gate has not been knocked down.
