A discussion was held regarding the ballot for
the special assessment at the annual meeting.
Even though the vote was running in favor of the
assessment, there were not enough people present
to make a quorum. The board voted to table the
special assessment until a later date and in the
meantime, look into doing what can be covered
financially with this year’s budget.
Neighbors Steve and Carol Cain are hosting a
meeting with Terry Lee, Pierce County Council
Member on Tuesday, June 5th at their house; Mr.
Lee will answers questions pertaining to our
area, mainly the Tacoma Narrows Airport’s future
and the common areas within our subdivision, who
governs those areas. Someone from the board will
attend this meeting.
The board agreed that it would be beneficial to
continue with Newsletters to be sent to the
homeowners to keep them up to date with on-going
and new issues and concerns occurring in the
subdivision. We will start out doing 2 issues a
year, summer and winter. The topics covered in
the first issue will be:
Message from the President;
General Property Appearance;

ahead with the repairing and updating of the
street lamps in Division I.

to allow 2 garage/yard sales a year; the first
one will take place on Saturday, June 23rd from

flyers will be posted around the neighborhood
and the gates will be open that day; Dianne will
send an email out to inform the homeowners.

of those signs and arrange to have some made.

2007; expenses that they are responsible for are
$1710.73 plus homeowner dues and legal fees to
