Those present were:
First was a review of the current budget. Things are looking good and right on budget.
2013 Pool Season a success — new basketball goal, chairs, fencing were great additions and appreciated by residents who visited the pool. We are currently taking bids from pool companies for the next pool season.
We are looking into more fencing around the basketball and tennis courts.
It appears that one of our new pines is in trouble and may be diseased and will either be replaced with another tree or possibly some sort of perennial.
We discussed the problem with the solar lights at each entrance. The installing company has already been notified and is correcting the problem.
We spoke of the school buses in the neighborhood and the speeding issues. Those seem to be resolved.
Notices are going to out to those residents who are not complying to the neighborhood bylaws.
We discussed ADA issues at the pool and poolhouse.
We spoke about the Summer Bash. Most felt it needs to be moved back to summer break. There is a possibility of a Fall event. We are waiting to hear from our Commons Director about this.
The Fall Garage Sale was brought up. It will be September 26,27,28 from 9-5. More advertising may be needed.

* We are on budget for everything …. events, expenses, improvements etc.
* Landscape plans for around the new signs are under way. We have Landscape Solutions working on designs that will give us low to NO maintainence as well as color year round. We are also looking into solar lighting for both signs. Completion of this will determined by the weather ….. at this point, we can’t plant anything.
* Tree Update — the dying/dead trees that line the pool and Little Chicago are still in the claim/investigation mode. These trees will be removed and replaced once the claim goes through. What type of trees and how many/size etc. will be determined once we know how much we will get from this claim.
* The tree that went swimming in our baby pool during a summer storm will be taken care of by the end of the summer and the fence will be repaired.
* There will be a fall garage sale Fri-Sat September 21st and 22nd. this year and will coinside with South Harbour again.
* Be looking for information on the Fall Smore’s Bonfire coming in October ….. fingers crossed the burn ban will be lifted at this point!!
We discussed the new entrance signs under construction. Everything is going according to plan. We have asked Landscape Solutions to draw up a landscape design for around the signs.
Spring clean up consisted of cleaning up around the pool area, splitting and moving plants, putting down mulch, getting rid of the poison ivy around the fence by the pool area, spraying the parking lot. Attendance was extremely low.
All the guards have been hired for the 2012 pool season. A new pool liason for this year has been established. It is Joanna Post.
New pool chairs were again discussed and a final decision will be made shortly so as to have the pool ready to go by opening day. Opening day is May 26th. Pool hours are 10 am-9 pm. A few other improvements, such as new umbrellas for the table and the guard chair are also in the budget.
