INTRODUCTION TO CAPITAL PLAN, WOOD CREEK HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION
This long term capital plan for WCHOA is the beginning of a planning process which, if continued in the future, will provide great benefit to our community. This iteration of the plan in May 2016 builds on the plans of WCHOA’s prior boards and provides a template for continuation of the planning process by future boards . Especially important is that this plan is accompanied by the board’s approval of a resolution to be presented to WCHOA’s owners for approval at their annual meeting on June 16, 2016. This resolution, if approved, will require future boards of WCHOAto prepare and present to the community annually their revisions to the community’s capital plan, including identification of the capital investments needed in the community and the means such investments will be paid for. This will help to assure that our planning process is continuing and that the capital plans developed in prior years will not be lost and forgotten but rather will live on through this continuous process of planning. This continuity is very important. The members of our board regularly change because of term limits, movement of people into and out of the community and other changes over the years. It is vital that our planning process must continue in this context. Residents may view the document on the Residents Login site from the Documents menu.
BUDGET for 2017-2018
The Board has released the budget for the upcoming fiscal year. It is available for residents to review at the Residents Login tab, then the Documents tab. Questions may be directed to Board members.
