MARCH 2015 – TVO I HOA MEETING – DATE TBD

TVO is currently setting the date for our March 2015 meeting. We will have a full agenda to discuss. The unapproved minutes from the September 2014 meeting will be distributed along with an agenda. We have several action items to report on such as the stop sign initiative, Garden Club activities, exploration of mandatory dues, and bylaw revisions. There is a lot more to discuss. Watch for the date announcement.

TREE TRIMMERS ARE STILL HERE!

Slowly but surely! They are currently raising the canopy on Boca Raton Drive. 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.

NEIGHBORHOOD SAFETY

As most of you know, we experienced a wave of mischief around the holidays. Reported incidents have decreased. However, we still have a responsibility to make our neighborhood as safe as possible. TVO I is asking each of you to continue with your precautionary measures such as turning on exterior lights and watching for suspicious activity. I know that some people installed motion sensor lights around their homes to help out.

PARENTS: We still need your help. Please talk with your kids to make sure our neighborhood kids are not involved and to help them understand the consequences of being caught. The community would prefer that this type of behavior would just come to an end. So far so good! Knock on wood!

2015 "VOTING" MEMBERSHIPS

Membership notices will be distributed earlier than normal in 2015. Our intent is to distribute the notices at no later than February. TVO I consists of 316 homes. 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 "voter registration" in February 2015.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

We need you to help us continue building a stronger neighborhood. As I read emails and speak to a lot of you, there are a number of neighborhood items that people want to discuss. The Board of Directors goal is to improve the leadership infrastructure with an army of volunteers. Some topics presented to me were: 1) Improving street lights. 2) Improving pedestrian safety in the community. 3) Improving walking paths. 4) Replacing street signs. 5) Improving pedestrian safety at Rt. 40 and Pebble Beach.

Our challenge is forming committees to explore these opportunities. We are still developing a strategy but we need you. Consider volunteering to build a stronger neighborhood.

Come to our March meeting to discuss a game plan. Your involvement can be a vital part to building a vibrant, healthier community.

FINAL CONTROLLED DEER HUNT

The final controlled deer hunt in The David Force Natural Resource Area is scheduled for Wednesday January 28, 2015. Hunters are allowed to use either a bow or shotgun, according to a county release. The hunt hours will be from dawn until noon. Please exercise caution if you are walking near the park that morning.
