The bank that now owns Lot 65 has contacted the treasurer re dues assessments. The treasurer’s report was approved.
Common area sinkholes and soggy ground – Linda will check with the City as to whether the City is willing to deal with this issue which involves the storm sewer lines that run under the Common Area. In the meantime, Susan has put rose cages and tape to mark the sinkholes for residents who are walking in the Common Area.
Annual Block Party – The Block Party is now scheduled for September 23rd, starting around 5 PM. Linda and Sandi are organizing the event. Becky will send out an email to all homeowners asking for help with the event. Linda has suggested that the Board supply chili and hot dogs for the main course. Homeowners will be asked to bring side dishes or desserts to pass. The location for the party will be in the Common Area on the tree-shaded plateau at the southeast corner of the Common Area, behind Lots 32 and 23. Suggestions for activities include volleyball, soccer, and water balloon toss, with a bonfire and smores to end the evening. The Fire department will be contacted about the possibility of a fire truck visit for the kids. More information will be coming as plans are finalized.
Fall/Winter Activities – The Board will send out an information email to homeowners with the City of Warrenville rules for Halloween Trick or Treating. There was discussion about possible decorating contests in the neighborhood for fall and or winter.
Issues with Apartments – Several residents have alerted the Board that there are two cars parked nightly on River Oaks Drive that belong to residents of the Country Ridge apartment complex. These car drivers also are using the sidewalk that leads to the apartment area as a meeting place. The Board will ask the City what kind of regulations exist that affect parking in the subdivision, as well as other ways to discourage lingering on the sidewalk. It was decided that this would be an appropriate discussion for the annual meeting next year.
The next Board meeting is scheduled for November 7, 2017 at 7 pm at Erik Poulsen’s house.
The meeting adjourned at 8:35 PM.
