      • Possibly create committee to head up this event.
      • TMG to send out an email for volunteers.
  • Landscape – 
    • Irrigation system concerns. Starting the first repairs of the season. The older trees continue to cause problems with the irrigation. Cost of a single repair is less than a tree replacement. Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri water will be ON – OFF otherwise. Capping sprinklers will save on irrigation.

    • Only two ARC requests – both were approved in timely fashion. Consider asking John on holding a special meeting for homeowners where he can talk about landscaping ideas.

V. Management Report


  • Homeowner Correspondence (please see management report on file, for additional information).  Homeowner correspondences were discussed regarding waived yard maintenance reminders, and overdue dues.  It was discussed, that homeowners that wish to have a fine waived are asked to present themselves in front of the board in person to discuss further.
    • A: Letters have been sent to homeowners in question. TMG to reach out to concerned homeowner to come to the meetings and discuss his concerns.
    • B: Trees that were not originally marked for removal are now a problem, as determined by an arborist. Motion to remove the trees and grind the stump as
      estimated by Davey. Motion carried.
    • C, D, E, G: no board action
    • F: Board requested TMG to reach out to homeowner and give them a deadline (e.g. 2 months) to complete the work. Then revisit this via a compliance drive-by and report.
    • G: Motion to prune the tree as outlined by the Davey estimate. Motion carried.

VI. Unfinished Business

  1. Monument Design – Update

  2. Water Overage / Credit – Update
    • We successfully worked with TVWD to give us a credit of $1300 to account for the leak we had last year. Tom has met with John to reduce grass areas that need to be watered and capping the heads. TMG to set up a landscape walk where we can look at areas that could use the same treatment (i.e. remove grass, bark dust it, and cap sprinkler heads).
