HOA MEETING – MARCH 11, 2015 – TVO I MEETING

The date has been set for March 11th in the Patapsco Room at Miller Library at 7 pm. We have several action items to report on such as the stop sign initiative, Garden Club activities, exploration of mandatory dues, and bylaw revisions. An agenda, proxy instructions, and the unapproved minutes from our September meeting will be sent in a separate email. Please mark your calendars.

VOTING MEMBERSHIPS ARE DUE

2015 voting membership invoices have been sent to every household. As a resident of TVO I, your homeownership make you a member of the community HOA. Your annual dues grants you voting privileges in any neighborhood issues for the year. Please submit your invoice prior to the March 11th meeting to have voting rights. Remember one vote per house.

SUCCESS: RT 40 / RT 144 / PEBBLE BEACH

In October 2014,TVO I asked the state to evaluate the two lanes on 144 that is turning west on 40 or keeping through onto Pebble Beach Drive. It is listed as SR0216347. The County was asked to at least mark the two lanes for either the westbound turn or the drive into Pebble beach. I received an email from George Miller, traffic engineering manager for the State Highway Administration.

"The SHA conducted a review, based on your comments, to determine if additional traffic control measures were needed at the intersection. It is our understanding that that you have observed several instances where two vehicles simultaneously travel through the intersection from eastbound MD 144 to Pebble Beach Drive.

The results of our review suggest that left-turn arrow pavement markings installed along eastbound MD 144 at US 40 and supplemented by an overhead left turn sign would clarify the specific lane use at this location. SHA is pleased to let you know that the recommended pavement markings and signing are expected to be installed in the Spring."

Another success for our neighborhood. We also discussed pedestrian safety for the same intersection. We will keep our fingers crossed.

TREE TRIMMERS ARE STILL HERE!

Through rain and snow, the tree trimmers are making their way up 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.

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 Director’s 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 strengthen your neighborhood.

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