Reports of Committees:

  • Communications: Fall Yard Sale Friday September 22nd 4-8pm, Sat September 23 rd 8-12pm. Maps have been printed and will be placed at each entrance. Week prior only two houses had expressed interest so an ad was not posted in the Edge or Edwardsville Intelligencer
  • Safety: Neighborhood watch; Still waiting for “Block Captains” volunteers. Resident noticed a suspicious white car in neighborhood
  • Social: Fall Block Party 9/9 went well. New location seemed to draw in new residents

New Business:

  • Board Member Vote: Had 10% of residents represented at Block Party / Annual Meeting. All present board members are re-appointed. One right in for Landscaping Director – to address.
  • Raising HOA Annual Dues: R.L. Plumber has offered to pay and install updated street signs in phases 4, 5 and 6 *IF* the HOA agrees to pay for the same street signs in phases 1, 2 and 3. Increased dues will also go towards Richmond Entrance monument
  • Suggested Meeting: even though the board tries to recruit residents to attend the HOA meeting, typically the meetings to not get a great turnout. It was suggested that if we were hold a meeting to explain the increased dues (as it was in this meeting) residents would be more receptive, if not enthused. Resident volunteered the Manny Jackson center as a meeting location option.
