WHPOA 4/2/14 Meeting Minutes

Budget looking good for this year. A copy of the budget was printed in the April newsletter.
Pool renovations will begin soon - we are putting a new epoxy on the bottom of both pools as well as new coping around the pools. This will begin shortly.
Pool will open for the season on May 24th with the same hours as previous years - 10 am to 9 pm
All lifeguards have been hired. 3 of the 4 guards are returning from last year.
Please contact Joanna Post through neighborhood email if you still need to pick up your Key Fob used for pool access.
Easter egg hunt with spring clean up was discussed. The hunt will begin at noon on Saturday, April 19 in the Commons area by the pool. Clean up will occur directly after the hunt. It was suggested that there was a lot of trash along the road near the pool area that could be cleaned up. Not much clean up needed in garden beds as everything has been mulched and weeded already.
Summer Bash date not set as of yet (UPDATE:  Summer Bash will be Friday, July 18). Something in the works for an event this fall as well. More information to come.
A neighbor in attendance commented on the some of the homes not following the covenants of the neighborhood which allowed for discussions concerning how we all can offer a lending hand to our neighbors to help keep our neighborhood attractive for all.
Our annual meeting will be May 5th at 7 pm at Pizza King. This will be a voting year for board positions.
In attendance:
Jeannie Snay

An Important Message from the Board of Directors

WHPOA Residents, It has come to the attention of the Board of Directors that while we would like for West Harbour to be considered a warm and friendly community, the actions of one resident have revealed a much different view. As a BOD we try to monitor and respond to the needs of all the residents. We are often called upon to resolve issues residents have. Our goal is always to find a solution that is both reasonable and effective for all parties involved. When appropriate, we also encourage residents to settle their own disputes. We believe home owners in West Harbour are kind and understanding people who can approach a neighbor regarding an issue without placing blame or passing judgment. If you feel you need to address a neighbor about a problem, please approach them with a pleasant attitude and an open mind. Each of us has our own set of circumstances. If we approach our neighbors in a positive manner,resolutions to issues will be easier to reach. As always, your BOD will continue to respond to issues on your behalf. We will consider the bestapproach and take the appropriate action. We are pleased to represent a neighborhood who takes suchpride in their community and we appreciate your input and support. Sincerely, WHPOA Board of Directors

Important Updates from the WHPOA Board of Directors

The commons area no longer has a mailbox/drop box due to the vandalism in the commons area. The new address is P.O. Box 715, Noblesville, IN 46061. The dues letters have gone out. You should have received yours in the mail. Dues are the same as last year ($372) and are due on/by March 1st, 2013. If you are not able to pay your dues in full by March 1st, 2013, please contact Jeannie Snay to make payment arrangements BEFORE March 1st, 2013 to avoid any late fees being assessed. Please note that our yearly dues have not increased in 5 years, since 2009. We are doing our best managing our money wisely so dues do not increase. New signs are paid for from money we had saved over the last 3 years. The landscape design that was approved by the board has been installed. We should see beautiful flowers coming up in the spring. The White Pine Trees that lined Little Chicago Road have been removed. These trees were damaged due to Imprelis being used in our commons area nearly 2 years ago. The cost for the removal of the trees and replacement landscaping/trees is being paid for by DuPont, through their claims resolution agreement services (we are not the only neighborhood in this situation, it is a national issue). The board members will work closely with our current landscape company, Landscape Solutions, to come up with a new landscape plan/design for the area where the trees were removed. If there are additional funds from this settlement offer with DuPont, the board will look into other improvements that are needed in the commons area. We will post updates as we get them. LIFEGUARDS NEEDED....we are in need of some good lifeguards this summer. Anyone interested in life guarding at the West Harbour pool needs to fill out an application and email Joanna Post.  Good, reliable, confident, out-spoken, hard-working, and BOLD applicants need only reply. POOL COVER/MAILBOX/TABLES DAMAGED....keep an eye out for any late night or unusual activity in the commons area. Several weeks ago we had some teenagers vandalize the pool cover by throwing concrete blocks on it, and ripping a hole in the center of the cover. They also damaged the mailbox beyond repair and destroyed the two picnic tables that were in the playground area. All of these items are being submitted to our insurance company for replacement/reimbursement. The pool cover itself is around $4,500 and was just replaced last year. Please report anything out of the ordinary to the police department. The board members will meet on as needed basis during the winter months. The only meeting scheduled right now is the annual meeting on May 6th at 7:00pm at Pizza King.
