MARCH 2014 – TVO I HOA Meeting DATE TBD

Thanks to the Schubert’s for placing the holiday wreaths at the front entrance.

PRANKS/VANDALISM

There have been recent reports of pranks in the neighborhood. Several neighbors on Carlee Run have experienced door bell bandits that hide and yell obscenities from afar. Some recent incidents involved missing pumpkins and eggings. Other incidents are too foul to mention. Police reports were filed and we are asking the county for increased patrols through the neighborhood.

PARENTS: Please speak with your teenagers about this issue. This behavior will not be tolerated and if they are caught by the police, they will be prosecuted. Hopefully, this small group will get the message and cease their activities. Thanks for your cooperation and assistance.

2014 TVO DIRECTORY IS HERE!

Roughly 70% of the directories have been delivered to the block captains. We hope every one receives a 2014 TVO Directory in the next week or so. Contact your block captain or let me know if you have not received it. Thanks.

SANTA VISIT

Ellicott City Volunteer Fire Department will escort Santa through our neighborhood on Wednesday, December 17th starting at 6 pm. The trucks are usually blaring their sirens as Santa makes his way through our community. The parade route is Pebble Beach to Boca Raton to Boones Lane. We are suggesting that your children come to the main streets and try to congregate in large groups. Our community is large and we would like to minimize the number of stops. After all it is a school night for the kids. Please contact any Board member for additional details.

STREAM RESTORATION PROJECT

Please be aware that these construction projects are happening in the neighborhood. If you have any questions about the Pebble Beach Pond Retrofit, you can contact Kelly Hargadin, who is the Project Manager. Kelly is copied on this email and can be reached directly at 410-313-0844.

If you have any questions about the Pinehurst Court Stream Rehabilitation Project, please feel free to contact me using the information below.

Thank you!

TREE TRIMMERS ARE STILL HERE!

They are currently raising the canopy on Foxfire Ct. I have been told several times that the contract is to complete the entire neighborhood. Please watch out for them and make adjustments with park cars. Thanks.

2015 "VOTING" MEMBERSHIPS

Membership notices will be distributed earlier than normal in 2015. Our intent is to distribute the notices at the beginning of the calendar year. TVO I consists of 316 homes. They are represented by the elected 5 person Board of Directors according to the bylaws. In 2014, 60% of the homes or 189 households, had voting privileges. As written in our bylaws, all 316 homes are members of the HOA but only members current with their annual dues are eligible to vote on community issues. Look for your invitation in 2015.
