New business:† Tapestry parking Ė Supervisor Cook introduced a motion for the county board to set up residential parking permit district in the affected area. It would cover single-family homes starting from the townhomes on Tapestry. In January he will look to amend this to include the townhomes.

Pool update- The working group got the list of things that need to be done for the county to accept the property. The County will give them a cost estimate and then they will have to pay that amount directly to the county. The Board may investigate if the county would take our property, which is contiguous to the pool property. This may reduce our liability.

Joe received an e-mail from a non-member in the nearby townhome community.† The personís car was towed from a public road. They had been told that the lines were painted incorrectly, but failed to tell the Board where they were parked. The person indicated that they wanted the Board to reimburse him the cost. Joe explained that we nothing to do with painting the lines for parking, that it is a VDOT and FFX county issue and they should take it up with them.


Hearing no new business, Joe motioned to adjourn, Linda Fournier seconded. Adjourned at 8:18pm.
