Annual Meeting Results
First a big thank you to our volunteers who helped with the election this year. This was our first election under the updated bylaws allowing online voting and extended in-person hours. We appreciate all the effort put into making these options a success. A total of 138 members participated to vote in-person and online.
Board Election Results: Shane Hesson, Roz Sweeney and Nick Golde are the three elected board members.
The only bylaw change proposal which passed this year is the restriction on short-term rentals which was supported by 78% of voters. The following is the amended article:
ARTICLE II: MEMBERSHIP 1g. Short-term rental properties (less than one month) are ineligible for any membership while hosting guests or advertising property for short-term lease. Tenants as defined in the bylaws refer to residents living at the property not short-term guests. Owners must resubmit request for membership once property is in compliance.
–Lake Hills Board
Our board meeting at the end of April was active with member requests to open the boat ramp and other aspects of the park. Thank you for attending! We appreciate your feedback and after taking your suggestions under advisement and also keeping with the new state and local guidelines, Phase 1 opening started Friday, May 1. We need to follow some stricter-than-Cuerny-normal guidelines for keeping our families, friends, neighbors, and contract employees safe and healthy.
We all need to be mindful about reopening; we want to avoid the issues cropping up at Commons Ford Park. We are counting on YOU to play nice at the park—as promised on the virtual board meeting—and to make sure others are doing the same. Please respect our neighbors on Edgewater Drive. No unaccompanied children. Leash dogs and pick up poop. If people can’t use the park safely, we will need to close the park again. We have ZERO TOLERANCE for breaking rules and disrespecting security—the consequence is a 60-day suspension from the park.
Hours (until further notice): Gates and park close at 9 pm. No people/no cars are allowed to be in the park for any reason after 9:00 pm.
Practice Social Distancing: no groups of more than 10 and stay at least 6 feet away from others. All of the facilities beside the pool are closed—playground, volleyball, basketball, and clubhouse.
Parking: Parking will ONLY be open in the paved lot, through the main gate. No parking along the fence next to the boat ramp. When the lot is full, no more cars will be permitted to enter. All cars must have a current sticker, which is assigned to a specific license plate. Tom will have the list.
Boat Launch: You must have your sticker on your vehicle. If there is no more boat parking, you may launch if you want to park at home. Please be considerate of others also wanting to get their boats in the water—limit your time in the slip to 30 mins and once you’ve loaded up your boat, please take it out of the park. You must be out of the parking lot by 9 pm—please plan ahead.
Walk-Ins: You’re welcome to walk in, but if there isn’t enough room to stay 6 feet away from other people, you can’t stay.
Please consider how many of your friends and neighbors also want to access the park and plan your visit accordingly. If you have concerns or questions, let us know: [email protected]
Thank you for your patience and caution in these unusual times.
Best, LHCA Board
