Architectural Committee Report (ACC):
It is time to start sending out reminders for spring repairs and projects so that Owners can get a jump start on planning. Management should start taking note and sending letters. The Board will report to Management any issues they note.
There are still a lot of trash cans being left in sight of the road. Management has begun sending letters on the first occurrence of this violation instead of waiting to see repeat offenders in hopes that this will help get the problem under control. If not Management will want to discuss fine recommendations with the Board.
The homeowner at 2920 Rocky Bay sent a letter in response to the Association's letter regarding the hockey rink. The Association's attorney looked over their letter and made some recommendations to the Board for a response. After some discussion ( Board member Mark Smith recues himself from the discussion) it is agreed that another letter be sent to the homeowner letting them know that the ice rink can remain for the rest of the winter but there should be no noise after 8 pm. They are also to understand in the future that the rink is considered a additional structure which must have prior approval in writing from the Board. Future construction of a rink will result in fines and possible legal actions for violation of the Associations ACC regulations. The letter should be sent by Management by certified mail within a week of this meeting.
The final draft of the revised House Rules will be sent out to the Board for review in advance of the next meeting.
The winter newsletter was not ready to go out with the Annual Meeting notice. A simple newsletter will be drafted to be sent out by Management instead of by the printer.
Hearing no further business Mike Bridges motioned that the meeting be adjourned. Mark Smith seconded. Meeting was adjourned at 7:20 PM.
Next meeting will be the Annual Meeting 10 February 2016 at the Bayshore Clubhouse.
