VICE PRESIDENT’S NOTE

I would like to remind everyone that it is very important for us as a community to try and resolve conflict(s) with our neighbors through face-to-face conversations, our block captains, and/ or the HOA. In the past few months, we’ve had letters delivered anonymously to address issues. Most recently, several incidents were reported involving snow removal and clearing of the sidewalks. Please be aware that this type of behavior is not our first approach to resolving neighborhood issues. There are always issues such as dog waste, visible trash cans, street parking, and lawn care that seem to be at the forefront. We have designated block captains to serve as liaisons to the TVOCA to help resolve these complaints and concerns.

The TVOCA is here to help protect everyone. If you are having an issue with a neighbor that cannot be resolved, please reach out to the HOA for help. Never take the matter into your own hands. Thank you.

James Brown

TVOCA Vice President

2014-2016 BOARD OF DIRECTORS ELECTION – MARCH 11, 2014

TVO I will hold its bi-annual meeting on Tuesday, March 11, 2014, from7-9 pm in the Patapsco Room of the Miller Library. The floor will be open for nominations for all five Board positions and a vote will be taken that evening. We need a minimum of 28 households present to conduct a vote. In order to vote you must be current with your 2013-2014 HOA dues of $75. Don’t assume your neighbor will attend for you – make sure you are there in person. If you cannot attend the meeting, you can vote by proxy. Contact your TVO I Secretary Kirsten Willging at kwillging to register your proxy and obtain any additional information.

Some agenda items will include a recap of the volunteer/block captain meeting, upcoming spring/summer events, the landscaping contract, vacant committee positions, and a budget review. This is the most important meeting of the year. Come on out and make your voices heard. Get involved – this is your neighborhood – looking forward to seeing everyone there!!!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Every HOA is constantly looking for dedicated and talented homeowners to join their cause.

It’s no secret that volunteering can be a time and energy consuming endeavor. However, volunteering can be a fun, rewarding, and essential way to building a stronger neighborhood. Without volunteers to lead and manage the association, things would start to unravel; property prices will drop; apathy becomes the norm; and the sense of community is lost.

TVO I is always looking for volunteers. We have several committee positions to fill. Come to our March 11 meeting to learn about the volunteer opportunities in areas like landscaping management, welcoming committee, block captains, and special events. Your involvement can be a vital part to building a vibrant, healthier community.

2014-2015 MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

For the 2013-2014 membership drive, only 56% of households (176 out of 316) paid their TVOCA membership dues. Our annual membership drive will launch in April and we are striving for 100% participation. Our $75 HOA dues are the lowest investment of all the neighboring communities. Watch for your invoice notice. Membership and volunteerism is the key to creating a great community.
