Challenges, Obstacles & Project Status Updates
- Joan Woolam asked about the roads being done and what the long term plan is. Chuck explained we are still sealing the holes and that’s why the the filler is coming out. Joan asked why we haven’t moved forward with an assessment yet. Tim said we do an assessment, refinance existing loan, or raise dues.
- Stewarts asked about how we are looking at making the decision. Tim said we need to do an assessment and an increase in dues.
- Elizabeth said the budget only allows for us to cover our operating expenses and we need to get the money by other means.
- Homeowner said paving the roads doesn’t solve the conditions of the roads. Chuck said they will seal, put 4in, and then seal again so the current roads are extra footing.
- Tim and Chuck said there needs to be a maintenance program put in place to keep the conditions of the roads, well.
- Stewart asked how we issue and plan payment terms of assessments.
- It would be more expensive to do it in phases. Chuck said there wasn’t project supervision and there will be moving forward.
- Jackie mentioned that the assessment is due after the quarter it’s agreed on.
- Condition of common area between buildings 10 and 11
- Chuck said he’s getting to this next and is going to clean that up.
- Joan wants a landscaping committee and planting flowers. Amy and Joan are interested in starting a landscaping committee. Joan says when there is no sprinkler system and Chuck says he does water them. Joan said there are plants that work and those that don’t.
