July 9, 2005 Special Meeting-ECC Fine and By-Law committee review

Call to Order by President Joe McGee.

This meeting is being held because of an ECC landscaping violation on Lot# 229.

By Law Committee changes in the wording of the Blue deed book regulations and rules.

Cathy Ortel-Lot#338 - ECC committee representative showed pictures of the landscaping violations. Cathy explained that the use of the existing flower beds was filled with sand and surrounded the home and was never approved and would not have been approved as it was done. There is a concern over the sandbox being butted up against the neighbors air conditioning unit. There is a safety issue about possiblity of a child putting their fingers into the unit and getting hurt. The other issue is putting in this landscaping without an ECC form. The committee sent a letter to the Geigan's informing them of the violation in September of 2004. Another letter was sent in December to fill out an ECC form for the work they had done. Bill Lefevre tried to contact the Geigan's and have them talk to their neighbor and it did not transpire. So unfortunately there has been no resolution to this matter, so a fine was set. The Geigan's have appealed to the Board and it's being heard today. Cathy said most of the landscaping could be approved with the exeption of the sandbox next to the air conditionig unit.The ECC would like the property to it's original state.

Mr.& Mrs.Geigan-Lot#000 -wanted to thank the Board for allowing them to come and voice their opinion. We've been here for 13 to 14 years. I'm a pastor for 30 years and I can't be here on weekends or for Board meetings. We've been fighting weed problems for years. We noticed another homeowner had placed sand in their flower boxes and it solved the weed problem. We did not realize we needed to submit a form to do this. We then went to the office and Tony told us where to get the sand. Joe interupted to say Tony doesn't work for the Homeowners Association. We purchased sand that is a 50/50 mix of sand and clay and it doesn't blow away. Mr.LeFevre called and told him that the job was very nice except for the air conditioning issue, and Bill asked that I try and talk to the neighbor about this.When the Geigan's made an attempt to contact and speak to the neighbors it was to no avail. The Board's Reply- Troy Purnell stated that in the future that the 50/50 sand clay mixture should be added to the landscaping options for the community because it is very beachy. The ECC will still remain in the guidelines as far as being 18 inches off of the courtyard. Joe McGee said that the Geigan's move the sand 48 inches away from the air conditioning unit and restore the common area back to its original state and the other landscaping can stay because it is not in violation. The Geigan's agreed to do this within 4 weeks. Vince Castelli made a motion to reduce the fine from $150.00 to $25.00. If the work isn't complete in 4 weeks the full fine will be inforced at that time. The fine issued will be for $25.00. Joe McGee will assist Mr. Geigan with the final ECC form for approval. Vince Castelli made a motion to have the Geigan's move the left side of the sandbox 18 inches. Vince Miller 2nd the motion. All in favor. Joe McGee thanked everyone for their time. By-Law Committee- Joe McGee and the board went over the entire wording changes proposed by the By-Law Committee that are to be voted on by all homeowners.These are the results. Joe stated that there would be NO Proxy Ballots done by Mail ! They can be resubmitted to the Board but it must be done soon so that a packet can be mailed out to every homeowner for approval.
