Phase 1 & 2
Lawn maintenance of ditches could be done because they are common areas.
Put together a letter to mail out inviting them to our community meeting.
Start draft and email out to David & Andrea to help compose.
Could Phase II be purchased or be allowed to build a common area/playground on?
Rick’s treatment of community members and sending letters without board authorizations is an ongoing issue.
Switching to a new management company is an option; however, every quote we have received so far is expensive and we’ve not found something that could work without increasing HOA fees yet.
Put together proposals from information that other Management Companies have given us to present to community members.
Possibly hold a community wide vote to increase dues in order to switch management companies if this is something enough members really want to do.
Budget: Budget Spreadsheet
Spending too much on landscaping, need to switch companies and take over management from RDA/Rick
Covenant & Fines
Covenant revisions write up needs to be reviewed before sending to Rick.
Send out revisions document for edits by board
Fencing Regulation needs to be specific list of what is allowable
No fences taller than 8’
No fences past the back corner of the house (into the front of the yard)
Allow for further than 20’ from the house/up to easements
Take part out about joco guidelines
Review Covenants & Set Fines - Push to another meeting time, create review document or add to current revision doc.
Community Zoom Meeting/Board Election
Schedule for late September/ early October
Does Rick/RDA Associates need to be present?
Hold elections for vacancies - members who have reached term (Allie & Telowa)
Hand out flyers for meetings as well as email, website, and facebook communication.
Zebulon Community Center.
Ask for pricing & cost of chairs/set up and if they have the infrastructure to support broadcasting the meeting via zoom?
Grass needs to be cut every week during the summer.
Does it seem like we are paying too much for landscape maintenance?
Andrea’s Landscape Company would charge $40 cut
Next steps: find a new landscape company, get a quote for cutting just the front and a quote for the front & common areas/ditches.
Rental Company Issues: Can we limit the amount of rental properties in the neighborhood? Are there rules that we can put in the covenants that would make it so rental management companies have to register with the HOA Board & Rick, give contact information for the company, property manager, and current tenants. Make sure the rental company knows they will be held responsible for violations/fines.
