MARCH 15, 2018 BOARD MEETING MINUTES

WOOD CREEK HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION Notes from the March 15,2018 Board of Directors Meeting Crofton Conference Room, 4 pm

Call to Order:     President Tom Glisson Attendance: Directors –(x) Tom Glisson, (x) Ginny Quinn, ( x) Kate Spencer, ( x ) Will Ruby, ( absent) Susan Salzman Property Manager – Connie Simmons Guests – Tom Shay  Call to Order and welcome – Tom Glisson Open Forum – Question on why postcards were mailed for grilling and shrubs Answer – we received a better insurance rate by showing we alerted homeowners to hazards of grilling too close to structures. The card on pruning – this service is performed every spring and each year some homeowners express regret that the tree at their unit was overlooked.  This causes an added expense for a return trip.  This year we decided to alert all homeowners.  Our arborist still decides if, in fact, pruning is appropriate. Another cost savings. A suggestion was made on where snow might better be plowed to – Crofton to follow up Variance Committee:  Will Ruby – requests for tree /shrub work at 96 CR, 133 WC, 59 CR, 197 WC, and 129 WC.  Board has instructed Crofton on resolution of each.  Letters to go out to homeowner. Secretary’s Report – Motion to approve February minutes was voted on and passed. Property Manager’s Report – Connie Simmons presented draft 2018 / 2019 Budget. Crofton will insure landscape specifications are included in the contract renewals for Romig. Treasurer’s Report, Kate Spencer:   YTD Status of FY2017/18 budget and LR Plan – status update on 2018/2019 budget – as of February 28, 2018, we currently are showing a positive variance to budget of $3,500.

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.

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.
