Bridgewood Estates HOA Board Meeting
Blake Goldberg, Kami Bollinger, Gordon Benjamin,
Rick Jones, Joe Faulkner, Terry Morrison,
Carolyn Tucker, Wendy (Compass) and Dianne
The meeting was called to order by Blake
Goldberg at 7:15 p.m. The minutes from the
November meeting were read and approved.
Carolyn Tucker presented the financial report, 6
families have not paid their dues yet; notices
have been sent. A discussion regarding the
amount of the penalty put on the homeowners who
are in arrears was discussed; no decision was
made at this time to increase it.
Speed Bumps: A motion was made and passed
to add another speed bump on 28th
by 19th. A motion was made and
passed to cover the existing speed bumps
with asphalt ones, it would cost $600 - $800
per bump but would make them better looking
and make a smoother drive.
Division I Lights (22): An estimate was
gotten to replace the high intensity lamps
with a larger-sized bulb, not as bright but
longer lasting (approximately 6 months)
which would help the photocell to last
longer. There was some concern about the
lamps being darker; Carolyn is going to have
the company do 1 lamp for an example to see
how it is received before contracting with
the company to replace all of them.
Trees: Common areas had quite a bit of tree
damage due to the winter storms, the cost
will be paid by the HOA. Clark Bros., will
trim the existing trees and do some extra
clean-up by the entrances.
Complaints: The process for complaints goes
from Carolyn to Blake, they discuss the
complaint and a plan of action is put into
Treasurer: The title of Treasurer has been
shifted from Gordon to Blake. Blake is the
person who interacts with Carolyn on
financial issues, no need for a separate
treasurer with the management company in
Board Size: A discussion of the size of the
HOA Board was held, 5 or 7 people? That
issue will be added to the agenda for the
annual meeting and a decision will be made
then. A flyer is going to be mailed to the
homeowners asking if anyone would like to
volunteer for the board.
Gates: The fact that the gates are open
during peak commute hours each day and on
weekends to accommodate realtor Open Houses
and garage sales, was discussed. The reason
is to minimize the stress on the motors. A
concern was voiced about the lack of
security when the gates are open so much.
Several suggestions were made about the
weekend openings; realtors could post notes
on the gates requesting that house lookers
dial the realtor for admittance and garage
sales could be limited to 2 a year, perhaps
one in June and another in September. This
issue will also be added to the agenda for
the annual meeting.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:15 p.m.
