Governing Documents Update
Recognizing the challenges that COVID-19 has presented to the Governing Documents Update proposal, namely being able to discuss and collect ballots in person, the Board of Directors have decided to pause active efforts for the next few months. The Board hopes to put together an active committee who are able to help recruit volunteers, discuss the issues, and collect ballots. The effort will be reexamined in Spring 2021.
Monthly Minutes In accordance with emergency legislation allowing Homeowners Associations to suspend the need for in-person meetings during a state-of-emergency, and given the nature of the emergency that makes it impracticable and unsafe to assemble in a single location at this time, all Board meetings were held electronically and notification was provided by email. As such, the records and minutes of those meetings are available at the following link:
