The board meeting on December 16th had a very special group attend the meeting. The Daisy Scouts of CRCA performed three songs for those in attendance and helped set the holiday mood for all. I am sure I speak for the whole BOD when I say thank to those young ladies for their well done performance.
The BOD was presented with a number of issues relating to vandalism of CRCA property. A play structure at one of the tot lots was broken by vandals and would require over $1600.00 to replace. The BOD voted to remove the remaining piece of the broken item due to liability issues and also voted to follow through with prosecution of the vandals. We are awaiting a copy of the police report before proceeding. In another instance, twenty plants were replaced in a section of CRCA on a Friday. By the following Friday seven of the twenty had been broken off to the ground by another group of vandals. This type of destruction of community property will not be tolerated by this BOD and we will pursue all legal means to seek restitution and prosecution of those involved. Please, report any instances you witness to the management office so we can stop this needless destruction of homeowners property within the association. Vandalism of CRCA property wastes the funds of every homeowner within the community. We need to stop this before it becomes a bigger problem.
The BOD sent out a request for proposals (RFP) for maintaining the landscaped common areas of CRCA and requested that they be submitted by December 21st. The landscape committee will be reviewing those proposals at two meetings in January with the goal of narrowing it down to the three best proposals. The BOD will then interview the top choices and select the best proposal to maintain the common area landscaping in CRCA.
VMS- the new software program for the association- is up and running and is within half of one percent from being current with all homeowner information. The few remaining updates left to complete are homes that have recently changed hands.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and we wish you all a prosperous and happy new year in 2010.
