Board members present: Zachary Curry, Janice Powell, and Bob Roth.
Zach Curry convened the meeting at 6:30 PM at his house. Zach Curry, Janice Powell, and Bob Roth attended. Don Smith attended as an observer.
The minutes from the May 11 meeting were approved, as was the agenda for this meeting.
As Cliff Dey was unable to attend, the community gate update was postponed until the next meeting.
The lock to secure access to the boat ramp has been problematical and has broken again.
Security at the boat ramp/dock area continues to be a problem. Cars and people who are not members of the community continue to use the facilities, even after dark. The current chain securing the boat ramp is too heavy for available locks, which consistently break. The board discussed whether to replace the lock or to implement a new solution, like an inexpensive gate/fence closer to Whale Branch Drive. Don Smith provided a schematic of an earlier proposal. Janice Powell and Zach Curry committed to provide estimates of the alternatives and Bob Roth committed to provide a rendering of the gate/fence proposal. The board plans to submit a proposal to the community prior to any implementation, unless it chooses simply to replace the lock and chain.
The Board has completed a new, web-based procedure for boat ramp access stickers. Applicants now complete a form online and email it to the board, receiving temporary passes by email and decals as before by mail. Temporary passes allow close to immediate access.
Bob Roth provided a list of possible covenants and restrictions by class of item (construction, lot and house maintenance, pets, vehicles including recreational use (boats, RVs), temporary housing and mobile homes, commercial use/rentals, etc). and asked to board to comment on which and to what extent they need to be covered in the revised covenants. The proposed covenants may be unnecessarily restrictive. The board will review the types of restrictions and provide their assessment of the need for restrictions in each area. This assessment will be done in parallel to any work done by the covenant committee. The board expects to distribute a similar survey to the entire community soon.
The Board discussed several potential nominations for ACC and Road Commission. The Board moved to send out a request for volunteers. The request draft will be reviewed at the next meeting. Further discussion was postponed until the next meeting.
New web features include the parking decal application, a new, comprehensive community data base, and information available by text message, including license tag, parking decal, and lot/owner lookup. Access to the text message features is currently limited to board members for security reasons.
The next meeting is scheduled for 6:30 PM on August 10 at Zach Curry’s house.
The meeting adjourned at 8:18 PM.
