Board member meeting began at 6:32pm by Zoom
Attendees: Diane Dietz, Sherry Jones, Donna Tomaro, Cathleen Duffy, Andy Drake, Steve Ginter, and Kristen Zollweg
Annual meeting: Due to the COVID 19 pandemic and social distancing restrictions the 2020 Annual meeting was postponed. We are now a year behind on the annual meeting. We are hoping to have it at the end of April. We are looking for an outdoor venue for the meeting, so that we will be able to socially distance. We are currently looking into the Below Dam Park. All positions will be up for election: president, vice president, secretary, and representative.
HOA Dues: Thank you to everyone who has paid their annual HOA dues. If you haven’t done so already, please don’t forget to pay your dues.
Bike path: The Orange Township bike path is being built along Lewis Center Rd. Some homeowners are concerned about its proximity to their yard and inquired about a privacy fence or trees. Our lawyer advised us that it is a violation of section 5312.08, improper expenditure of HOA funds, since subsidizing trees or fence would be on homeowner property. If there’s HOA property it can be subsidized, but there is not. One recommendation is to have all the homeowners form an alliance and go to the township for support. We are going to reach out to the Shores HOA to see if we can get a meeting between all homeowners along Lewis Center Rd that will be affected. More to come on that.
Social activities: We are looking into doing a community garage sale again this year with the Shores.
Thursday April 8th 5pm-7:30pm Slab food truck will be in the neighborhood. They sell burgers, wings, pulled pork, fries.
Meza Wine Shop in Westerville will let the neighborhood choose a date and they will deliver to anyone in the neighborhood for free for orders of $25 or more. We’ll let everyone know when we get that date.
Spring is coming, it’s good to be able to get outside. Please remember to drive slow in the neighborhood. Also, if you’re doing spring yard work and your mailbox needs stained, remember all of the HOA trustees have stain to give you, just let one of us know.
Meeting adjourned at 7:57pm
