OWNERS’ COMMENTS

  • A request was made that No Trespassing signs at the pond be replaced with more appropriate verbiage.
  • The community that has owners that pay attention to the details of their common property make our homes more marketable. It was shared that small details like a damaged trash can that sat at the pool for months before being reported or a doorbell light that needs to be replaced can easily be accomplished by notifying management. The quality of the community is in the details.
  • It was suggested that a new survey be distributed to owners to upgrade the grill area. Several owners responded positively. 
  • An owner requested that more meetings be held at 6:00 PM to allow for more community participation.
