Quarterly HOA meeting

Start at 7:02pm

Attendees:  Steve Ginter via phone, Donna Tomaro, Kevin Fellona, Tim Huter, Diane Dietz, Sherry Jones, Andy Drake, and Cathleen Duffy

The backflow for the irrigation system will be re-done this month.

For now we plan to leave the annual HOA dues the same, may need to increase in the future.

All residents should have received their letter stating that the pond in our neighborhood is private property, owned by eight of the homeowners living around it.  We ask that you not use the pond recreationally without specific permission from one of the homeowners.  The homeowners living on the pond may request a no trespassing sign paid for by the HOA.  The deadline to order a sign is 12/31/19.  The homeowner will have input as to the design and placement of any no trespassing signs, so that they will look tasteful.

The HOA will re-evaluate mailboxes in spring.  If your mailbox is still in disrepair you will receive a notice giving you 30 days to fix it or it will be done for you by the HOA at homeowner’s expense. 

The street signs/posts will be repaired and stained in the spring. 

The vandalized street sign on Greely should be replaced 12/9/19.

We plan to update the local utility companies listed on the HOA web site.

Greenlawn has been hired to maintain the neighborhood irrigation system and do the lawn maintenance for the common areas this year.  We will also have them update the landscaping.  The plan is to update the landscaping of the circles on Westwick and Highgate this year and the front entrance in the spring.

Information from the Orange Township meeting:  There are no bids out yet for the bike path.  William Cohen says it will go out for bidding in the spring.  It may go closer to lot lines than anticipated.  There is no plan for landscaping or a fence around the path.  Waukeegan and Westwick are on the list to be evaluated for repaving in 2020.

The new directory will be printed by the end of the month.

The HOA Annual meeting will be at Orange Township Hall in March.  Date to be announced.

Next HOA meeting 1/30/20 at 7pm .
