The annual Easter Egg Hunt was held on April 15th with over 600 children attending and a crowd of probably 1500 taking part in the festivities. A loud thank you goes out to Paula Bellina who was in charge of organizing the event, the boy scout troop who provided a lot of support, the volunteers who donated their time helping man events and a special thank you to the Easter bunny volunteers who put on the Easter bunny suit and suffered with being hot so the children could see the Easter Bunny. The event seems to grow every year and it is nice to see so many children enjoying themselves.
With the first of May comes one of the duties the BOD does not enjoy at all. That duty is sending homeowners in arrears of their assessments to collections. Anyone who has not paid for one year is sent to collections as it is our fiduciary duty to see that all homeowners are current on their dues. We send delinquency notices out but a number of homeowners fail to respond at all. This really leaves us no options but to send it to collections. If you are having financial issues please contact the office and talk to Aimee so some sort of arrangements can be made so that we are not forced to having to send you to collections. She can set up a payment plan to keep you current. Ignoring it will not make it go away and sending it to collections just adds attorney’s fees to the bill. The initial contact by the attorney costs an extra $350.00 and is added to the assessment due. Please contact the office so we do not have to send a past due account to collections.
You might have noticed new plantings being put along Twin Peaks road and Coachline is next. We suffered a loss of numerous plants with our last landscape company because of irrigation issues not addressed by them. We withheld enough money to cover the cost for these replacement plants from their last paycheck so are did not have to use the current monies budgeted to the landscape committee.
We have had a large number of homeowners doing projects without an Architectural Review committee application. Some of these do not meet the guidelines so it is advisable to submit an application before starting your project so that the ARC can work with you so you are in compliance with the design guidelines.
