Attendance:. Joe, Katie, Andrea, David, Maureen, Telowa, Jordan
Food Truck/Block Party:
Didn’t go as well as we hoped, turnout was not great but wasn’t terrible.
Might try another neighborhood event maybe around halloween to see if we can get more of the community together
The Yard Sale went well for neighbors that participated.
Consider doing this annually or twice a year.
Get bigger signs next time.
Advertise earlier & encourage neighbors to advertise big items via facebook marketplace & community buy sale trade pages to draw in larger crowds.
New Board Members:
Board members voted 6-2 to not allow renters on the board. This will need to be added to the governing documents.
Put together an ad/email campaign to recruit new board members in time for elections in October at the annual meeting.
Speeding in the neighborhood has gotten really bad
Revisit speed bumps? - Jordan will contact NCDOT
On 6/3 Jordan got in contact with NCDOT for speed bumps rules and process. The process is very involved and a bit more expensive than our funding will allow currently. The board has decided to table this idea in favor of trying stop signs first.
Joe will look into Stop Signs as an alternate option:
On 6/1 Joe spoke with property management about the speeding issue and they confirmed adding 3 way stop signs at the intersections on Soaring Eagle Trail is within our rights as a Community/HOA Board and will contact the company we used previously for the 25 mph speed limit sign.
The board voted 7-0 in favor of this option with 2 members not responding.
To begin we will install all-way stops at the first to intersections in the neighborhood as well as add two more speed limit signs and slow children at play signs.
After a trial period,if we need to add another all-way stop at the last intersection we will do so once we’ve recouped funds.
Option 1 - Estimate Received 6/27/23
4 street signs w/stop signs$5800.00
4 stop signs w/ children at play$6780.00
2 speed limit signs $650.00
Total$14100.00 + tax
Board unanimously voted against this option, even though we like the nicer signs, this is too expensive.
Option 2: Estimate Received 8/4/23
Total cost $2,541.83
Board voted in favor of this option.
David will contact Johnston County Sheriff's Department again about patrolling neighborhood
Send out email for concerns or feedback so David can collect them all and send them to the mayor protem
Put together a survey?
Next Meeting: Tuesday, August 29th @7:30
